ABOUT COCO JONES: Coco Jones – 25-year-old multi-hyphenate actor, singer/songwriter, and star on the Peacock hit Bel-Air, released her major-label debut EP What I Didn’t Tell You in November 2022, which included the hit single “ICU.” Coco has been in film and on TV since she was a tween, starting out as a recurring guest on Disney’s musical sketch comedy, So Random!, and, in 2012, as the golden-voiced love interest in the network’s TV movie, Let It Shine. She has stayed busy ever since, flexing her range across titles that span adventure romps, intense dramas, holiday fare, and comedy horror (Netflix’s Vampires vs. the Bronx). You also may have seen her on the tiny screen – with millions of social media followers, dedicated to upping representation for proud, talented, dark-skinned Black women. Most recently, she won Outstanding New Artist at the 54th NAACP Image Awards.
In 2020, in an act of vulnerability and bravery, Jones decided to respond to a viral tweet asking what had happened with her career via YouTube. She filled fans in on obstacles she’d faced as a dark-skinned black girl in both the acting and music industry and was met with an outpour of support. “It reignited me dreaming big dreams,” Jones says of the endearing online experience. From there, she began speaking positive affirmations, claiming the creative endeavors she longed to sink her teeth into. Fast-forward to 2023, as Coco Jones celebrates the first officially certified RIAA Gold record of her career, for the massive hit “ICU.” The multi-faceted artist, signed to High Standardz/Def Jam Recordings, has now launched her music career with a brand of R&B as soulful as it is relatable, as diary-honest as it is marked by powerful storytelling. And though she’s young, it’s been a long time coming.
