J.Howell, a popular new Memphis singer-songwriter, releases the new visual for his latest single, titled “Why You Hurting Me.” A song about washing away past pain, Howell links with director Thang Ho for a revelation. Watch the new video above.
“Why You Hurting Me” is a reflection of Howell’s PTSD, which includes the loss of an important family member. “After the passing of my grandma, I needed to write a song that channeled the pain I was feeling but also captured the beauty that my grandma exuded to all those who got to experience her,” he said.
He added: “I wanted the video to illustrate me alone with my thoughts and music. Sometimes we have to be alone and engage in those tough conversations with ourselves and remove all distractions, even the person you want to be with the most.”
Howell’s latest release is a follow-up to the rising star’s breakthrough EP, Red Room, which spawned hit singles “Deserve,” “Faithful” and the #15 Billboard Adult R&B, “Talk.” “Why You Hurting Me” is available now via JTProductions and prepares fans for Howell’s forthcoming project, expected late-2021.

ABOUT J HOWELL
Passionate, Creative, and Driven are only a few words that describe Memphis-native, J.Howell, not only as a singer but a revolutionary artist in the making. His voice and aura are captivating, magnetic, and authentic. Discovering his love for singing at an early age, J.Howell began envisioning the mark he wanted to make in the music industry. Given the opportunity to perform during a black history program for his school at the age of 7, his aunt and mom were astonished and blown away by his unique and powerful voice and knew there was something special about his talent that the world needed. From that day forward, J. Howell earned much support from his family to pursue his dream of sharing his voice with the world.
J. Howell is not your typical artist. Penning his thoughts to paper has served as a therapy to unleash the emotion and passion he portrays through his music. Although most would try to categorize him to only R&B, his vocal capability and diverse musical influence allows him to capture the hearts of all. With a combination of Beyonce’s vocal arrangements, a young Tevin Campbell’s voice range, and a hint of that 90s R&B/Hip Hop swag, you have the perfect blend of J. Howell’s eclectic style and sound. No bells and whistles, strictly “heart music.” He takes his own experiences and weaves them into something that people can feel and relate to.
“Don’t compromise who you are to fit in with the trends of the world. Stay true to you, and everything will align the way they should.”
His first EP, Red Room, produced by Teray Love features the hit singles: “Something About Ya,” “Deserve” and “Faithful” as well as the lead single, “Talk” that charted #15 on Billboard Adult R&B.
