Ali Jacko | The Only Thing I SEE

Ali Jacko

What would you expect from an ex-kickboxing champion turned musician? Probably not Ali Jacko’s new single the ‘Only Thing I See’

Ali Jacko’s new single ‘Only Thing I See’ is a story about a once in a lifetime kind of love. It is beautiful, emotional, and heartfelt, and certainly not the kind of track that you would expect from a five times World Kickboxing Champion. But that’s the kind of artist that Ali Jacko is, his surprising back story and poignant musicality make for an extremely unique artist.

Born in London’s East End, Ali Jacko’s illustrious Kickboxing career began with a chance encounter with the legendary Muhammad Ali, after this it was a done deal. Ali Jacko set out to be the kind of athlete that would inspire and enamour people just as Muhammad Ali had done for him.

Ali Jacko’s character in the ring makes the genre of his songs even more interesting. ‘I never lost a fight’ he says, ‘Once I fought with 22 stitches in my hand and came out on top’. Ali Jacko has now applied his can-do attitude and steely determination to his music career, with his promise to release a new track each month of 2018, and with their beautiful lyrics and Americana country rock vibes, they are set to be a real hit.

‘Only Thing I See’ was released on the 28th of February 2018, and it is quite simply a declaration of love. ‘God knows there’s nothing better than you and me together // and there’s nowhere else I’d rather be’, sings Ali Jacko. There is a power and intensity to his vocals that gives the lyrics the gravitas that they deserve.

Ali is accompanied by a four-piece band, and his deep and expressive vocals rightfully take centre stage. The track starts simply with Ali and the band playing in an understated manner, he then builds up to what is a high energy chorus, the drum beat is taken up a gear and Ali unleashes his real vocal power.

He’s already released a handful of singles - one of his previous videos features supermodel Jodie Kidd.

Having conquered the world of fighting, he is now ready to turn his head to music, and ‘kick’ his competition out of the way….

The track is uploaded to his BBC Introducing profile.
