A West Coast song with an R&B base.
Hailing from Marin County, California, Arden Jones is already the next big thing. Growing up, Jones was exposed to a diverse mix of genres such as rock, jazz, and blues. While he first began writing and recording songs in high school, it was only in 2021 that his career really started to take off. This was forwarded with the release of his first single, “Parallel Parking.” Since then, Jones has released single after single, each topping and outperforming its predecessor. His music is available on Spotify, YouTube, and his own website. Arden Jones’s latest release is already a major hit, and it’s an R&B-based nostalgia piece titled “Starstruck.”
“Starstruck” is one of those songs you just cannot get enough of. Jones has a unique voice on the track, and he is able to switch between singing and rapping easily. Listening to him, we’re reminded of artists like Mac Miller or even blackbear. Jones also exhibits a very cool cadence in his voice without appearing too cocky. He’s confident in his skill and it pays off. The song has a great blend of pop and rock with hip-hop influences as well. Though it seems silly, there are serious themes that Jones explores in its lyrical content; a prominent theme is the ever-growing fame addiction that plagues people in L.A. Now, living in Los Angeles, Jones draws from those personal experiences without being too far to reach any audience. So, stream Arden Jones’s “Starstruck” to get a taste of stardom yourself.
