TJ Jackson made a poem and accompanying video for titled "400 Years" which is a brief look into slavery and injustice to blacks throughout American History. "The most important video I’ve ever made. This was the first time I’ve ever been inspired to write a poem. So many words I needed to say and I didn’t want any restrictions, limits or structure in how to say them. I hate to admit that I learned more about my history and true American History in doing this video than I ever did in school. My goal is simply to open everyone's eyes AND hearts and hopefully inspire us to learn about our past so that we can properly move forward and ensure a better future for our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Love always.s," TJ Jackson said.

400 Years. 400 Years. 400 Years.
More than 400 years of being treated different.
To Jim Crow
To Emmett Till
To Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
And it’s still happening today
400 Years and were still in this position
What did we do? So wrong
Try to love us before you crush us
400 Years and it still doesn’t feel like home
If you truly want to understand us
Then you have to learn about us, from us
You have to feel our pain
You have to acknowledge what we know
Please try to love us
Because if you don’t
We’ll never grow as one
Open your heart
Cause we can’t take another 400 years.
After releasing his debut EP Obsession in March of 2020, TJ Jackson is back with his first single off his follow up album. The debut single “Last Night” is a retro dance groove that Jackson feels demonstrates where he is at musically. A sound that is straight from 1980s and 1990s R&B with TJ describing it as “old school R&B with modern elements" and aiming to make music that “will last well beyond today.” The music bideo will drop on YouTube on May 29th. TJ Jackson is on a mission to make his own mark within the incredible Jackson legacy... and beyond!
