Jacob Latimore Teams Up With T-Pain On “Heartbreak Heard Around The World”: Idolator Premiere

Jacob Latimore is on a roll. With a string of high-profile movies (Ride Along, Black Nativity and The Maze Runner) under his belt, the multi-talented 17-year-old returns to the music game with T-Pain-assisted single “Heartbreak Heard Around The World”. And it’s a slickly produced, heartfelt R&B ballad with serious radio appeal.

Sounding like a cross between Nelly‘s “Just A Dream” and Chris Brown in slow jam mode, “Heartbreak Heard Around The World” finds Jacob in a very reflective mood. “Never gonna find another love like you, I had another lover but she just won’t do,” laments the teenager over smooth synths before T-Pain joins in with his trademark autotuned rap: “I was thinking about puttin’ a ring on it, I shoulda gave you everything you wanted.” Listen after the jump.

Does Jacob have a hit on his hands? Let us know in the comments below.
