Louisiana native aims to emulate Chris Brown
as America’s next diverse entertainer
ZACHARY, LA – Jamie Johnson is a young sensation whose music is about to make a giant leap across the U.S. While attending the University of Lafayette for a semester, this Louisiana-native made a name for himself on campus as one of the most diverse dancers to attend the school. In his neck of the woods, there’s a style of dancing called Jigging that he had perfected, and when he brought it to UL it made a splash with his classmates. That splash turned into big ripples when someone gave him the nickname Jiggarobix. He loved it so much that he embraced the name as a stage name, and decided to pursue music professionally.
Today, Jiggarobix has taken that notoriety and parlayed it into a budding music career that he hopes will eventually see his name in places all over the world. His goal is to use the strong foundation of his dance training as the building blocks to multiple disciplines within the entertainment industry. The artist he points to as a great example of his own goals is Chris Brown, who is not only known as a great singer but also an amazing dancer and actor.
“My favorite artist of all time has always been Chris Brown,” Jiggarobix said. “I’ve been watching him for a while and the way he’s so multi-talented. That’s what I’ve been striving for – to be an all-around artist instead of someone who just stands on stage and sings. I want to be known for someone who comes with a different sound in each song that he makes. I want to be known as someone who can do it all in terms of music.”
Toward that end, Jiggarobix said he has worked hard at perfecting multiple styles and genres. In one song he might bring a more trap-forward sound and style – similar to the sound of Migos – while on another song he might show off his ability to rap as many as 11 syllables per second – similar to Eminem. Sometimes he’ll make a song that sounds more like Post Mallone, and sometimes he’ll dip into pop and sing in an effort to pay homage to another of his favorite artists, Michael Jackson.
“I can do pretty much everything when it comes to music,” he said. “I have a new creative mindset that I’m looking to bring to the ears of music fans.”
Already this winter he has released the single “Life So Hard,” which is a laid-back vibe that tells the story of a mother waking up and realizing her child never made it home. She sees his face on the news and realizes he’s been shot and killed. From there the song goes over a timeline of different situations that people can get themselves into – from being locked up in jail, to addicted to drugs, and more.
Jiggarobix said the song has a very August Alsina vibe to it. He’s following that up with the release of another single, “32 Degrees,” before the end of the year. It’s more of a rap-style vibe that he likens to Migos. The title of the song is a metaphor for jewelry, and Jiggarobix said it’s more of an upbeat song that showcases his ability to both rap and sing.
Jiggarobix said he plans to release more singles over the course of the next few months as he
builds toward a full album. To listen to his music, or to follow him on social media, please visit:
