New York native Jesse McCartney is back with his 3rd and most personal album yet, Departure, hitting stores on May 20th. A new and edgier pop/R&B sound reflects his growth as a singer, songwriter and young man. Jesse’s first single, “Leavin'”, produced by Tricky and The-Dream (Rihanna’s “Umbrella”) is this week’s #2 most added song at Top 40. For Departure, McCartney sought out many of today’s biggest hit-making producers. Sean Garrett (Chris Brown, Usher), J.R. Rotem (Sean Kingston, Rihanna), The Clutch (Ciara, Mary J. Blige), and Eric Hudson (Kanye West), who Jesse describes as a young Quincy Jones. “The songs on Departure explore several facets of my growing pains and interpersonal relationships,” says McCartney. Since releasing his debut solo album, Beautiful Soul in 2004, McCartney quickly went multi-platinum, racking up #1 chart positions all over the world, from Australia to Italy to Japan. McCartney garnered countless award nominations including an American Music Award for Best New Artist, an MTV Award for Best Pop Video, as well as several Kid’s Choice and Teen Choice wins.
