Jacob Latimore is making waves as a certified R&B heartthrob. Making girls swoon all over the country this past summer on the Scream Tour, Latimore now offers fans his first mixtape “This Is Me.”
The 16-year-old shows maturity and content range on the 12-track intro project, offering relatable music for any age demographic. With features by fellow Scream Tour-alumni Diggy Simmons and the OMG Girlz among others, This Is Me covers all R&B bases; you have your hyped, swagged-out cuts such as “Blast Off” and “Clique,” and the soulful, vulnerable “This Is Me Intro,” “Alone,” and “Love Again.” “Back & Forth” stands out as a laid-back banger, and Latimore remembers the significance of cherishing a growing relationship in the OMG Girlz-assisted jam “Slow.”
“This Is Me” is a satisfying debut compilation from an emerging R&B prince. Stream for yourself, then download.
