Warner Brothers R&B songstress and Philadelphia native Jade Alston certainly “aint” your average, a fact she’s making clear with a soft alto that has that touch of sass needed for a proper R&B diva. Coupled with melodiously poppy beats- as showcased in her debut EP Missing You Lately- Alston is a refreshing R&B force that sounds like a cross between Mary J. Blige, SWV and RIhanna. Despite these similarities, 24- year- old Alston is definitely creating a unique musical niche as she continues her rise to the top.
Alston is certainly no stranger to the entertainment industry; Alston coined her original stage name “Your Girl Jasmine Jai” when she was 14. Alston has an impressive resume that includes an 8- year gig as a VJ on Philly’s video show “Urban X-pressions” and a stint as one of Kelis’s Hype Girls that eventually led her to open for everyone from Amerie to Busta Rhymes to 50 Cent.
