The Voice’s season 6 contestant @iamJakeBarker puts his spin on @Usher’s “You Make Me Wanna”

JAKE BARKER, “You Make Me Wanna”

With two recent EP’s under his belt (Stage Fright, Trip) after his experience on TV’s “The Voice”, likeable NYC-based R&B/pop singer Jake Barker is off to a fine start in 2016.  He kicks off his new campaign with an original spin on Usher’s “You Make Me Wanna”, and has chosen to post new songs every two weeks each month along with some covers (which he explains after the song in the video above) .  It’s only two minutes long but Jake’s unique vocal spin on “You Make Me Wanna” really deserves a full rendition.  This was Usher’s first huge single (and remains my favourite by him) from late 1997, and isn’t heard as often as his later hits these days.  But if you need to be convinced that Jake is someone to watch, this will do the trick.  Continue to watch this blog for more of Jake Barker’s music in the months ahead!
