An Audition Gets Sexy in Victor Jackson's 'Lights, Camera, Action'

Victor Jackson

The Atlanta-based multihyphenate artist's new "visual offering" was inspired by Black romance films from Love & Basketball to Moonlight

Atlanta-based R&B and soul artist Victor Jackson released the video for his single "Lights, Camera, Action" last week, and it's a sweet, sexy fantasy about going deep during an audition.

The visual offering, as Jackson calls his onscreen songs, is directed by Maya Table and produced by Princess Mbunaze, and imagines classic Black romance films that have had an effect on Jackson.

"I grew up watching Love & Basketball and The Best Man but it wasn't until Noah's Arc: Jumping The Broom that I saw people who look and love like me onscreen," Jackson says in notes for the video. "Then Moonlight completely changed the game and I hope this video can contribute to the visibility of Black queer love in tv, film, and music."

Lights, Camera, Action" is off of Jackson's EP Man. Muse. Magic, released in December, which he dedicated to the inspirational Black women who've influenced his music and art.

A multitalented performer, Jackson is the creator of Atlanta's Pride & Soul Festival and Pride & Soul: Unplugged, events that highlight Black queer artists. He has also appeared on The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Braxton Family Values, and in guest-starring roles on BET's The Game and Step Up: Highwater on YouTubeRed. He recently appeared in the acclaimed "Strange Case" episode of HBO's Lovecraft Country.
