Why Jam by Sweatheartz Is a 'Necessary' Listen


Amarillo, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/06/2015 -- The newest release from hot female hip hop artiste, Sweetheartz, could be her best project yet. Titled Jam, the album is not only showcasing the hip hop sweetheart's talent in a different light, it also involves different flavors and sounds that are bound to draw the attention of the most discriminating ear.

The Necessity Defense Factor

An album of several themes, survival at all costs is a subject that gets some of the artiste's attention. This is highlighted not only in the punchline of some of the best numbers on the compilation but also by way of a running skit in a guest appearance by a real 'Life hacker', if you may, Harry Jack Spakes.

While Spakes is virtually a no-name in music circles, he has more street cred than many of hip hop's finest, who spit fictionalized rhymes, having escaped from prison no less than seven times. As if that wasn't enough, the former convict managed to have a piece of little-known legislation work in his favor called the 'Necessity Defense', which saved him from serving out a 60-year prison sentence arising from a prison break that was also life-threatening.

Spakes' story, which draws parallels with predicaments of cannibals, cannabis growers and war protesters as far away as Vietnam, is an apparent inspiration to Sweetheartz, whose real name is Jana Barros, and sparked the need for Spakes' appearance.

Pre-released on Reverbnation and Spotify, the 13-track effort utilizes a number of arrangements and melodies to disturb the ear and invoke curiosity about the mystique of Sweetheartz. In addition to the obvious hip-hop influence, the tracks are also imbued with pop and rock themes. Included among the most interesting tracks on the album are "You Got Money", "Don't Leave Me Now" and "Thunder Bill" for which a video has already been uploaded to YouTube.
