The single’s catchy head-nodding beat finds Wright showcasing her vocal range with witty lyrics.
Written by Wright, the single will be featured on her upcoming CD Book and Fragrance (GMUSIC), due out in early spring of 2012. This will be her first CD since 2005’s Divorcing Neo 2 Marry Soul.
“Switch” has caught the attention of soul music lovers and is spreading like wildfire on soul and hip hop music sites and making its way to radio. The “Switch” remix features fellow Philly alum and former State Property member Peedi Crakk.
“‘Switch’ is not just a record, but a story about my walk through life and the entertainment industry,” explains Wright. “It’s all about going with the flow, rolling with the punches, and knowing when it’s time to stand up and claim the life that belongs to you. Only in change can we find out what we’re really made of. Only through change can we truly realize the reality of who we really are. Why march to the beat of someone else’s drum, when my drum beats just fine?”
Wright’s single “Beautiful” was also released to iTunes this month. The steamy and sexy groove is another stand out from the upcoming CD. “‘Beautiful’ is a song I wrote to be a representative of what love/love making can be if we let it,” says Jaguar. “Which is a concept that is easily lost dealing with the ups and downs of day to day life. This song was written as a tribute to love. I hope everyone who hears it feels the positive emotion it was written to evoke.”
In 2001, Jaguar moved to soul music’s forefront when she took the stage alongside Jay Z for his unforgettable live performance for “MTV Unplugged.” Backed by Philly hip hop band The Roots, Jaguar Wright rocked the stage, blowing the audience away with her vocal prowess. “With a voice that speaks directly to the soul, Jaguar Wright is a presence in music that can neither be ignored nor denied,” wrote Natalia Francis in The Philadelphia Intelligencer. Wright’s first album, Denials Delusions Decisions (2002), received rave reviews and was named #1 Best Album of the Decade by the Associated Press’ Nekesa Mumbi Moody, who described the project as “…a riveting CD that never leaves those who hear it.”
With her new CD on the way, Jaguar Wright has also taken her career into her own hands and has engaged top management with GPI. Based in Beverly Hills , Lindsay Guion has handled top-shelf roster of multi-talented artists, including but not limited to the Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum recording artists D’Angelo, Mya, and Ginuwine.
“Jaguar Wright is the ‘real deal,’ that has always been about working hard to create songs that can truly change people’s lives” says Artist Manager and Album Producer, Lindsay Guion.
