Jim Jones Dedicates ‘Perfect Day’ to Cancer Patients
“I lost my grandmother from cancer,” Jones explained. “I always wanted to dedicate something to her. The video is dedicated to anyone that’s affected by cancer, or have cancer or families that’s been affected by cancer. And for the soldiers that don’t get to come home who have been at war for so long, for people that have hearing problems. This is all dedicated to things that mean something personal to me.”
The video depicts Jones as a deli employee, pink-clad babysitter and doctor, a major departure from Jones’ usual street image. “I know a lot of people don’t expect this type of music for me,” Jones continued. “When I first put it out I been getting a lot of flack, like ‘that’s not a regular Jim Jones song, where that Jim Jones s–t at, where’s that ballin’ s–t at?’ Then the same people that was telling me that two [to] three weeks ago, is now like, ‘Nah, but the song’s kinda alright, it’s kinda growing on me.’ Sometimes you hear something that you don’t like so much that you end up liking it.”
‘Perfect Day’ is the second single from Jones’ upcoming fifth album, ‘CAPO,’ which is scheduled for release on April 5.
