2012 already looks to be a big year for Bay Area singer-songwriter Jhameel , especially with the release of his new music video “Shut Up.”

Of all the rising indie Bay Area artists who had a successful 2011, Jhameel nears the top of the list. Last year the singer, whose voice is a self-described  mix between Prince and Michael Jackson, released his Dance EP, topped the Hype Machine Popular Charts, while also gaining a considerable amount of press domestically and internationally.

To kick off the new year, Jhameel just released an official music video for his song “Shut Up.”  Jhameel directed, produced, edited, and choreographed the video as well.
