La Toya Jackson To Release CD Single Of 28-Year-Old Track In September: Here Comes “Trouble”!
Ever the innovator, La Toya Jackson is dropping remixes of a track recorded 28 years ago in September! Originally intended for the diva’s fifth LP La Toya (you know, the one with hip-hop classic “You’re Gonna Get Rocked!” and catchy anti-drugs anthem “Just Say No”), “Trouble” missed the cut and was ultimately given to Nia Peeples by producer Steve Harvey. As fate would have it, Toy Toy’s trash turned out to be her rival’s treasure and the song became a top 40 hit.
But don’t cry for the thinking man’s Jackson just yet. La Toya’s version is being rescued from the footnotes of pop history with the release of a random remix package featuring overhauls from Jared Jones, Matt Pop and Ranny. There’s even a bonus mega-mix of La Toya album tracks if you buy the CD single! I have no idea why any of this is happening, but I’m glad it is. The 59-year-old maintains a strong cult following — most recently releasing “Feels Like Love” and high-camp RuPaul collaboration “Feels Like Dancin'” in 2014.
