Listen to our exclusive interview with singer/songwriter & TV presenter Stacey Jackson who spoke with Tara about launching her music career in her 40’s, new single ‘Flipside,’ dream collaborations, plans for the year and more on Sunday April 3rd at 1pm PT/4pm ET.

Stacey Jackson is a singer/songwriter, entrepreneur, TV presenter & mother of four.

She became an inspiration for stay-at-home moms when she shot to fame, having launched her music career at age 40. Following the chart success of her debut single, Stacey has gone on to release four albums & over a dozen singles, recorded a track “Live It Up” with legendary rapper Snoop Dogg. The record recently celebrated its 10th anniversary and has been rebooted & relaunched in June 2021. She has also worked with Papa Levi & prolific dance music producers & remixers such as C-Rod and Dave Audé. She’s toured the world from stadiums to floats at Pride, stepping out in her trademark high heels & hot-pants.

Het latest single ‘FLIPSIDE’ was recorded in London, with Stacey working with longtime collaborator and co-writer Ramzi Sleiman, who has also worked with the likes of The Overtones, LuLu, Westlife, Taio Cruz, T2 and Mis-teeq. FLIPSIDE has a deliberate 1980s pop feel, and was therefore the perfect track to use as an introduction to Stacey’s 80s nostalgia pop TV Show, Stacey Jackson in the 80s (Spotlight TV, Sky Channel 365 and Freest 500).

FLIPSIDE is an anthem of empowerment, but it’s also so much more than that. Stacey Jackson has been up against her fair share of obstacles; as an older woman in the public eye, certain parts of her career have been an uphill struggle. On FLIPSIDE, she pours her self assertion and determination into every syllable, convincing us and, in the process, herself, that she’s got staying power.

I had literally finished writing the song right before I even landed the TV series! So when the producer of the show asked me if I could suggest a pop track we could use for the theme song – it was almost spiritual! Such a crazy coincidence! The lyrics came to me quite quickly because it’s all about taking risks to become a better ‘you’, even when you have so many commitments in life and are being pulled in so many different directions.

Current pop icons like Dua Lipa and The Weeknd are all referencing 80 pop, and so Stacey felt she could contribute to the trend – from the perspective of someone who was there first time around!

Stacey’s novel “How Snoop Dogg Made Me A Better Mom” is set to be released Summer 2022.

As fitness also plays a huge part in Stacey’s life, she launched her patented workout top called Staefit – created to tackle issues women may have while working out and through her online workout videos she encourages women to be the best possible versions of themselves.

Listen to this song and more emerging artists just like this one on “Discover”, playing Sundays at 1.30 pm PT/4.30 pm ET on Channel R – Today’s Hits & Your All-Time Favorites.
