Jean Live at Jazid, Next Friday

Talent runs in the Rodriguez Lopez-Cepero family. It certainly graced Luis Alfonso, better known as Latin Grammy winner Luis Fonsi. And it didn't pass his younger brother Jean Carlos, who goes simply by Jean, by either. The Puerto Rican born singer-songwriter, has a distinct style all his own, heavy on R&B and soul, with clear Latin pop underpinnings.

Such is the case on Out The Box, the 2008 follow up to his 2006 debut On. And it's something he continues to strive toward on his mixtape Genius To Jeanius, which released in December and you can download for free right here. Download that and check out this young talent's bilingual stylo. And if you like what you hear, you can head to Jazid next Friday to catch him live and direct.
