JUNO Award-winning R&B singer/songwriter Sean Jones is back with his smooth and sexy new video for “Weekend Lover”, which you can watch exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
The track, which was produced by Murray Daigle (Keshia Chanté, Faber Drive, Cauterize), has an upbeat retro vibe that is the perfect summer anthem, and is a must-have on everyone’s summer Spotify playlist. The video, which was shot at Jones’ longtime hangout spot Scooters Roller Palace in Mississauga, ON, was directed by Brian Gregory.
“Weekend Lover tells the familiar tale of two people out with their friends on a Friday night and looking for a good time,” said Jones. “The two love interests find themselves in an awkward position as sparks between them fly far more than either one expected.”
In 2015, Jones became the first artist to secure a solo summer residency at the historic Casa Loma in downtown Toronto. The Monday night revue titled Soul in The City gave Jones and his nine-piece band, The Righteous Echo, the chance to showcase his original songs as well as their take on popular old school hits. The show would also give emerging artists a stage to share their talents.
Soul In the City, through Jones’ hard work and tenacity, has grown to 1000+ people every Monday night. The night’s overwhelming success led to WestJet, Canada’s second-largest airline, handpicking Sean to create a musical experience for the passengers aboard their flights. For the project titled, The WestJet Boarding Sessions, Jones recorded new versions of classic Canadian hits such as “These Eyes” by The Guess Who, “The Weight” by The Band, and “Angel” by Sarah McLachlan and flew across Canada to interview some of these cherished musical icons.
Jones brings a fresh and contemporary vibe to the classic soul and R&B sound that has inspired him. He has enjoyed a distinguished career that has seen him perform from Monaco to Hawaii, from London’s historic Trafalgar Square to New York’s Carnegie Hall and The Rainbow Room, and more.
