We’ve been telling you about Austin Brown for some time now, and the rising star is surely on his way, as Jermaine Dupri hosted Brown’s official album listening party in the Hollywood Hills at the El Cartel Tequila mansion, during the BET Awards weekend. Rap-Up TV was in the building and according to them, the nephew of the late King of Pop previewed music from his upcoming debut Highway 85 including his single “Menage a Trois” as celebrities such as Melody Thornton, Too $hort, and Evan Ross stopped by the poolside party.
“He has a fresh new look to this music scene and I think that’s what we need out here,” explained JD
Brown has worked with Rodney Jerkins, Q-Tip, Ryan Tedder, and Pharrell on his album, and maintains a close relationship with his aunt Janet Jackson, who he calls his best friend. “She’s the one who gives me the most advice,” he said of the pop icon.
