Coco Jones talks about receiving five Grammy nominations, what’s next for her role as Hilary Banks in the show Bel-Air, her song for The Color Purple soundtrack, how she is planning to top the success she saw with her hit song “ICU,” performing in front of her hometown Nashville, why she loves her collab with Reneé Rapp and more!

Coco Jones:
I guess, look at music creation from the standpoint of “What do you want the final world to be? Where do you want the songs to live, and how do you want to feel on stage?” because you’re going to do that every day. Hey, y’all, it’s Coco Jones, and you’re watching Billboard News.

Kyle Denis:
First off, happy new year! How are you feeling now that we’re officially in 2024?

Coco Jones:
I’m excited. I think I learned a lot in 2023. I just had a birthday, and I’m ready for whatever challenges are up.

Kyle Denis:
What do the Grammys mean to you? And how does it feel to now have “Grammy nominated” in front of your name?

Coco Jones:
Grammys are just a very respected group of people who earned their voice and earned their credits and their credentials. To me, I respect everyone who is nominated and who decides, because I just feel like the Grammys also help up-and-coming artists, help up-and-coming creatives. And so for them to recognize the work that I’m doing, it just feels very affirming.

Kyle Denis:
You’re up for five awards, and I want to list them out because you deserve that. You’re up for best new artist, “ICU” is up for best R&B performance and best R&B song. What I Didn’t Tell You deluxe is up for best R&B album, and “Simple” with Babyface is up for best traditional R&B performance. Congratulations.

Coco Jones:
Thank you.

Kyle Denis:
Wow. Where were you when you first learned about those nominations?

Coco Jones:
Oh, when I first learned I was nominated, I was on the plane. And I definitely was asleep. My phone was vibrating so much. I was like, “This turbulence is crazy.” But what I realized is everyone was texting me congratulations. So as soon as I landed, I was calling everybody back.
