Songwriter Kipper Jones Gives 'Em Hell Again With Vanessa Williams' New Single 'LEGS'

EntSun News/11022837
More than 35 years after their first hit together, songwriter Kipper Jones co-pens Vanessa Williams' newest single "LEGS (Keep Dancing)" and other songs for upcoming project.

ATLANTA - EntSun -- Songwriter Kipper Jones shows no signs of slowing down in his almost-45 year career. Jones has co-written the lyrics for Vanessa Williams' upcoming single "LEGS (Keep Dancing)" from her forthcoming project. The song, co-written by Disney songwriter/producer Chantry Johnson and songwriter Kjersti Long, marks the third time Jones has written a single for the multi-hyphenate Williams.

"The whole concept was Vanessa's idea," says Jones. "She wanted to pull from legendary actress, singer, dancer, icon Diahann Carroll's memoir, titled The Legs Are the Last to Go. [Vanessa] didn't know whether it was the title of the song or the lyric or whatever. I didn't find that unusual at all. That is also how we came up with 'The Comfort Zone' back in 1991."

In a press release, Williams states, "What a joy it is to be making new music behind the mic again with old friends." She continues, "There's a certain comfort in creating new works in the studio while reminiscing about how so many years in this business have brought successes, excitement, and lasting memories. Always moving forward is what drives me. Every challenge is exciting. And more new music to share with my fans is the fuel that lights my fire."

Jones echoes his friend Williams' sentiment. "I think that that's what keeps me open to being over 60 and still doing whatI love", says Jones. "You're standing at the hill, looking back and saying, 'wow, I did that.' Then looking ahead you go, 'okay, now I'm diving into this.' With all of that experience, I'm armed for this next chapter, this next moment, you know?"

The Pop/Dance song, "LEGS (Keep Dancing)" will be accompanied by remixes from 808BEACH and a music video, upon release. The single hits all streaming platforms on April 26, 2024: https://lnk.to/veXK.
