Jesse McCartney Bursts Out In Color On 'Livid' Mag Cover (Exclusive)

Jesse McCartney kicks it up in this cool new shot from Livid Magazine, provided exclusively to JustJared.com.

Here’s what the 27-year-old musician and actor had to share:

On his newest album: “‘In Technicolor’ is a collection of songs that has a modern take on retro pop. Produced mainly by The Elev3n, together we decided to make something that felt fresh but still familiar. I was on a daily diet of Prince, Earth Wind and Fire, Michael Jackson and Kool and the Gang, artists that made a big impact on me musically. I’d say this album is my proudest musical achievement.”

On his personal favorite on the album: “I think ‘The Other Guy’ is one of my personal favorites. A song that was written about a love triangle, ‘The Other Guy’ definitely showcases what I can do vocally and says something that most have never heard from a male’s perspective before.”

On how his influences changed: “As I got older, in my early teen years, I started shaping my voice and developing a style that was heavily influenced by singers like Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles, but the popular artists at the time were also very influential to me, Craig David and Daniel Bedingfield. Those 2 guys were especially great at rhythmic singing. Their voices were smooth and their pocket was undeniable. It was like listening to an amazing drum-kit if drums had a melody. That’s when I realized that I wanted to be a Pop/R&B Singer.”
