The multiple-time Grammy-nominated American Singer Freddie Jackson is an R&B veteran who dropped his last album, 20th Century Masters: The Millenium Collection, in 2014. Jackson was leading the R&B front in the 80s and is an inspiration to many young musicians.
Career & Progressions
Jackson`s debut album, Rock Me Tonight, came in 1985 when he signed a record deal with Capitol. The album was a massive hit, spending six weeks at number one. He then released his next hit; You Are My Lady. And eventually, his album hit Platinum status.
It was 1986 when he released his second album, Just Like the First Time, which also hit the Platinum. By that time, Freddie had stamped his name as one of the great R&B artists. But as the 80 draws to a close, Freddie’s musical career started to decline slowly, and he began to fade away from the limelight.
Freddie went on to release several other albums and singles. But none have ever reached the platinum status as his first two.
Despite all the adversities in his career, Freddie Jackson has accumulated a hefty net worth of $3 million.
