Pray, That I: Peter Jackson releases new video in support of 23 & a Half
Earlier today, Canadian hip-hop artist Peter Jackson premiered fresh visuals in support of his latest project, 23 & a Half.
“Pray, That I,” the Mike Vegas-produced intro to Jackson’s 9-track Summer offering, features talented Toronto singer-songwriter Amber J, whose melodic, hope-filled chorus sets the tone of the album perfectly.
The new release was created by a pair of videographers with a long history of working with Jackson and his company, 9-0-Nickel Entertainment. Both the director, Daniel Barker, and Shawn Thomas—who handled filming and editing—have been behind the camera for several of Jackson’s videos including his popular Fetty Wap-assisted “If It’s You” which has close to 400K views on YouTube.
“The ‘Pray, That I’ record is one of my favourites off of the album,” Jackson explained in our exclusive track-by-track breakdown of the album.
“I heard Amber J’s first single, and my boy Krown connected us immediately. We went to Cherry Beach and recorded a few records together the next day. I am in love with her vibe and sound. It’s pure, emotional, and so real. Very excited to release it as the next radio single, and video off of the project. I wrote this song the day after my daughter’s birthday, after Koby Bryant passed. Every lyric is what happened, and how I felt. I think I cried 50 times listening back to this record.”
You can find “Pray, That I” and the 23 & a Half album on various digital streaming platforms including Apple Music and Spotify via 9-0-Nickel Entertainment.
