As Tito Jackson’s debut solo single “Get It Baby” rises on the Billboard charts (currently at #19), the song continues to blow up on dance floors everywhere. The song is the latest dance craze that has taken over the nation as the official “Line Dance of the summer.” Audiences from coast to coast have created their own rendition of the “Tito Dance” aka The GET IT BABY Line Dance. One of the particular line dances will be showcased at the National Line Dance Convention in Las Vegas later this month.

Tito Jackson's new single "Get It Baby" completes the family set.
Tito Jackson joins his brothers and sisters and scores his first solo hit on the Billboard charts with "Get It Baby." With the single's recent debut, Tito becomes the ninth and final Jackson family sibling to place a solo single on the charts.
For over 45 years, the Jackson family has been charting hits -- stretching back to the 1969 debut of the Jackson 5's "I Want You Back" on the Billboard Hot 100. In the following decades, the children of Joe and Katherine Jackson all embarked on solo careers, most spectacularly with Michael Jackson. By 1989, eight of the nine siblings had reached the charts.
"Get It Baby," featuring Big Daddy Kane, debuts at No. 30 on the Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks chart dated June 11, and climbs 29-26 on the Adult R&B Songs airplay chart in its second week.
The Jackson siblings’ solo chart runs date back to October 30, 1971, when Michael Jackson’s debut single, “Got to Be There,” started at No. 89 on the Hot 100. Since Michael kicked off his string, nine of the Jackson children have scored hits on a Billboard songs chart (listed in birth order):
Maureen “Rebbie” Jackson – seven charted titles on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, including two top 10s in 1984’s “Centipede” (No. 4) and 1988’s “Plaything” (No. 8).
Sigmund “Jackie” Jackson – two charted titles on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, including a 1989 top 40 hit “Stay” (No. 39).
Tito Jackson – “Get It Baby” debuted at No. 29 on Adult R&B Songs on the June 4, 2016 chart and Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks the following week.
Jermaine Jackson – 17 charted titles on the Hot 100, including two top 10 hits: “Daddy’s Home” in 1973 and “Let’s Get Serious” in 1980. Both cuts peaked at No. 9.
La Toya Jackson – nine charted titles on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, including four top 40 hits. Her highest ranking track, “Bet’cha Gonna Need My Lovin’” climbed to No. 22 in 1983.
Marlon Jackson – two charted titles on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, including the No. 2 smash “Don’t Go” in 1987.
Michael Jackson – 29 charted titles on the Hot 100, including 13 No. 1s, the most by any male artist in Hot 100 history.
Steven “Randy” Jackson – three charted titles on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart (one as a solo artist and two as part of Randy & The Gypsys). Of those three, 1990’s “Love You Honey” scored the best rank, topping out at No. 16.
Janet Jackson – 27 charted titles on the Hot 100, including 10 No. 1s.
Of course, the Jacksons also made music history working together. The Jackson 5 -- a lineup consisting of Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon, Michael and Tito -- scored Hot 100 No. 1s with their first four releases on Motown: “I Want You Back,” “ABC,” “The Love You Save” and “I’ll Be There.”
Twenty years after Michael Jackson recorded his iconic "They Don't Care About Us" in a favela in Rio de Janeiro, Tito Jackson, returns to the marvelous city to film an appearance in the music video of the charity song "Winning by Giving" (with Mart'nália and kids) which will be released as the anthem of the international news and charity network entitled My Good Planet, to be launched in Rio de Janeiro in the summer.
A statue of Michael Jackson has long stood as a prime tourist attraction atop the Santa Marta favela in Rio's South Zone, and now Tito Jackson makes a mark with his message.
The project "Winniny By Giving" that is already established in Los Angeles, Ireland, and Germany, aims to bring sustainable gardens, clean water and communal safe places to disadvantaged, urban areas of Brazil.

According Tito, the children of Santa Marta have long identified with the sentiment of Michael's anthem, so now it is time for a practical response showing that people do care.
"It is a great feeling to know that my brother was here 20 years ago and shared so much love and support for the people here and to know that Good Planet is continuing to carry on that spirit and that love in the ways they have done today. And I am so happy to be a part of it because it means so much to me to be among such beautiful people and it's very important. The Good Planet people say to teach young people how to grow fruit and vegetable, organic stuff, and how to have clean water, drinking water, clean up with water and things for the future of the children of Brazil," said Tito Jackson.
The project in Santa Marta builds on an initiative nurtured in the community by resident and favela tour guide, Marco Antonio Martins, who started to cultivate a small plot of land amid the hilltop houses.
"We want to reach children. If I only try and get adults' attention, they want to argue with me, but if a child tries to get an adult's attention, the adult feels bad. If a child tells their mother or father not to throw rubbish, the parent will feel bad, and if a child plants a seed and sees the benefits, it catches on. Children are the future, we can't just think about the present, we have to think about the future," said Martins.

Tito Jackson will be in Brazil on May 16th to film a cameo appearance in the favela of Rio de Janeiro with locals kids and drummers for the music video "WINNING BY GIVING" by Brazilian artist Mart'nália. Tito was asked to be part of this charity song and video and he is excited to contribute and shoot his cameo appearance for the music video in the same favela where his brother Michael Jackson filmed his music video for "They Don't Care About Us" (1996) twenty years ago. It means a lot for Tito to visit that same Favela because his brother embraced Brazil and the people as well.
Mart'nália Mendonça Ferreira, known as Mart'nália (1965) is a Brazilian singer, songwriter and percussionist. She is the daughter of sambista Martinho da Vila and singer Analia Mendoncabegan and Mart'nália began her professional career at age 16. In 2015, her album Em Samba! Ao vivo was nominated for the 16th Latin Grammy Awards in the Best Samba/Pagode Album category.
In the spirit of bringing unity and peace all over the world, Tito is looking forward to receive The Olympic Torch along with the children of Bahia on May 19th during a meeting for and with the Pataxo Indian tribe and torch ritual.
Tito will be busy in Brazil to promote his contribution to the "WINNING BY GIVING" project, as well his own upcoming single "Get It Baby", participating in other charity events and visiting local schools and people.
On May 20 and 21st, Tito will be back in the United States and performing with his brothers as The Jacksons at Chinooks Winds Casino Resort in Lincoln, OR.
On June 3rd, Tito releases his highly catchy new single "Get It Baby" featuring Big Daddy Kane from the forthcoming Spectra Music Group release TITO TIME. The single is available for pre-order at iTunes, Amazon Music and Music on Google Playstore.
Tito Jackson will return to Brazil on July 30th for a performance (possibly with Mart'nália) and more dates are being added so watch this space and follow Tito Jackson's official pages for more info and to stay updated.
Shameika Rhymes catches up with Tito Jackson to talk about music, the new album and "Tito Time". Read the article and interview on JetMag.com or below.
Legendary guitarist and performer Tito Jackson has a lengthy resume as a founding member of the iconic Jackson 5 and The Jacksons. While the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer is no stranger to the spotlight, it’s the first time he’s stepping out on his own with his solo debut album, “Tito Time.” The album is expected to be released later this year. The first single, “Get it Baby” will be released through Spectra Music Group on June 3rd and features legendary rapper Big Daddy Kane. JET caught up with Tito Jackson to chat about his forthcoming album proving the naysayers wrong.
JET: Over the years there were hints that you were working on a solo debut album and then we didn’t hear anything else. What happened?
Tito Jackson: Part of it was trying to find a home for the album which I did at Spectra. Actually, I was recording a record at Motown and right when I was really getting into it, my father moved us from the label so I never got to finish it. I have been working on this album for quite some time. I became more interested in being a father. I had heard about fathers that didn’t stick around for their kids and I didn’t want to be one of those people. I also had a lot of tragedies over the years. Every time there’s a tragedy, it can set you back a little bit. You just have to keep going and do everything that you love in honor of the people that passed.
JET: What can you tell us about Tito Time?
Tito Jackson: I named it Tito Time because I took my time with it. I’m probably the last Jackson in the world to ever record anything (laughs). All of my siblings released their solo projects so it’s my turn years later. Actually this project is one that I started from the ground up. By that I mean I built Poppa T Studios. I bought the equipment, and a friend and I wired the whole place all for the sake of this project. My brother Michael passed right when I was in the middle of the construction, so I didn’t touch that studio for like three years after he died. I just didn’t have the strength. I eventually got back in there and started recording. I really wanted to find songs that everyone would enjoy regardless of their race, so the album has a lot of different genres. I just believe if you make good music, then people will enjoy it.
JET: Talk about your single, “Get it Baby.” How did it come to fruition and how did you link up with Big Daddy Kane?
Tito Jackson: Linking up with Big Daddy Kane was actually through my production team. One of the producers knew him. We wrote “Get it Baby” in my studio, and it’s just one of those songs where there really wasn’t a whole lot of science work to be done on it. It’s one of those songs that has a Rock & Roll feel to it, but it also has a little bit of everything in it like funk and soul.
JET: What are your thoughts on the music industry, especially now compared to when you first got into the business?
Tito Jackson: It’s hard to say. There’s definitely a big difference and it’s all because of the internet. I think it’s one of the best times for musicians or artists that are trying to be heard. It’s so easy to reach people these days. We didn’t have those things back then. To record a song back in the 60s you had to have money. Just to do one single back then it was roughly about $13,000. Today if you have a computer then you have all the studio time and musicians that you need right there at your fingertips. The down side is anybody can get your music for free. The advantage is those are the people that will come to your shows.
JET: What do you say to the naysayers that didn’t believe you would ever release an album?
Tito Jackson: People have always underestimated me, and I knew they [would] but I never said anything. People have made all kinds of jokes, and I never said a word. I just like for it to show in my music. For the ones that didn’t think I would do the album, I’m going to make a liar out of them. I put a lot of time, love, heart, and soul into this album, so it’s definitely Tito Time.
