K’Jon Finds Bliss While ‘On The Ocean’


Could it be considered a risky move to be a relative newcomer and have your debut single not be about -- gasp! -- love, but the ocean? Why, yes, it could. If you're Detroit's K'Jon, clearly this wouldn't faze you one bit. If memory serves me correctly, the last time a song decided to focus exclusively on the topic of seafaring, Christopher Cross' "Sailing" decimated the Pop charts and influenced a number of artists thereafter. Hopefully, K'Jon finds similar success on calmer waters with this reminder of what R&B radio stations used to consider standard fare--and hopefully will once again.

  7. I love this song so much bc its a remider of my favorite quote by ZNH: "Ships at a distance have every man's wish on board. ...." Who is this guy. If he didn't write it, his writers are amazing

  8. Well we are fortunate enough to have been hearing this great song for the past few weeks one of our local urban stations. Just heard it this morning in fact so this is a timely bounce. Speaking of Christopher Cross' sailing have we all heard Avant's version. Caught that on the radio too. Nice version just not sure why. That song is actually about sailing with out the love/relationship metaphor.

  9. This is such a beautiful song! It's always played on the R&B/Soul station in Philly.

    First time hearing it, this is quite nice. Voice sounds good, love the Christopher Cross rip off guitar and strings and the mix sounds great, rare now a days. Sadly...
