J Aktive: Bringing Back the Fun in Music
- March 18, 2023
J Aktive is an independent artist who is taking the music industry by storm. With his unique sound and style, he has been able to capture the attention of fans and industry professionals alike. He executively produces all his music, coming up with the topics, selecting the beats, and working closely with his engineer to fine-tune every aspect of the song. This allows him to execute his original vision with precision and create music that is authentic and relatable.
J Aktive’s love for music started at a young age when his mother would make him and his sisters sing in front of the church every Sunday. He learned how to play the saxophone in the third grade, which taught him how to read and write music. His older brothers were full-time rappers who he aspired to be like growing up. By the age of 12, he recorded his first song, and by 17, he built his first home studio out of cardboard boxes and began recording numerous records.
In 2022, J Aktive dropped his first debut album, “Bad Luv,” with the leading single, “Pist Off,” going viral on social media and getting reposted by celebrities such as Janet Jackson, Deion Sanders, Mario Lopez, and Dougie Fresh. With all the attention, “Bad Luv” LP reached over 3 million streams across all streaming platforms.
J Aktive wants people to take away motivation and inspiration from his music, encouraging them to Aktivate their true ambitions. He wants to communicate that it’s healthy to express your emotions and that you can be cool and be yourself. He wants to bring the fun back to music, like the ’90s vibes, where people were more content with themselves before social media.
A day in J Aktive’s shoes consists of waking up and making a healthy smoothie and taking his daily supplements. He meets with his team to continue game-planning new ways to promote his image and latest projects. During the day, they are in the office editing content, mixing new music, and shooting new videos, among other things. At night, he likes to work out before going to sleep, which helps his brain wind down after a full day of heavy thinking.
J Aktive has many new singles coming out this year, and he plans to take the “Russ” approach and release a song once a week until he runs out of unreleased songs. He has so many different styles of music as well as new sounds that he is experimenting with, and he wants to give it all to the public and get their opinion. He also has a major single coming out with a Platinum-selling artist this spring that he is super excited about.
J Aktive’s success is a testament to his talent, hard work, and dedication. He has overcome many challenges in his life, including leaving his old group of friends to create a positive lifestyle for himself and his mother’s diagnosis with a brain tumor located at the stem of her brain a couple of years ago, which jeopardized all her motor skills. He hopes to continue making great music that can inspire others to be the best versions of themselves. Keep up to date with J Aktive on Instagram and check out his music on Spotify.
