Stacey Jackson releases the perfect single for Mother’s Day ‘Closer To My Dreams’

The irresistible hit is the first revelation of the soundtrack for Stacey’s debut novel, ‘How A Gangsta Rapper Made Me A Better Mom’, which shines light on balancing motherhood with a career in music. Need a pick-me-up hit? Look no further than ‘Closer To My Dreams’.  

Drawing influence from Stacey’s early years in her first musical outfit, an 80s girl rock band, ‘Closer To My Dreams’ is an immaculate fusion of 80s rock and ethereal pop. Having topped the charts on her collaboration with Snoop Dogg, the singer-songwriter is proving to continually deliver her own sparkling brand of catchy, feel-good hits set to delight audiences and beyond. This effect is designed by an influx of commanding drums, exquisitely heightened electric guitar and lingering melodies destined to stick in the listener's minds. 

‘How A Gangsta Rapper Made Me A Better Mom’ tells the story of mother Stephanie Bloom, whose life is swiftly turned upside down when her husband unexpectedly dies, leaving Stephanie with a choice between prioritizing her family and pursuing her career in music. Based loosely on Stacey’s life, it opens up the discussion of whether mothers can balance it all and how to persevere. ‘Closer To My Dreams’ similarly showcases that it’s never too late to pursue your ambitions, inspiring audiences to dream big.  

‘Closer To My Dreams’ is a nostalgic insight into having big dreams from an early age and striving towards ambitions. Perfectly meshed with the artist’s signature, empowering attitude and towering vocals, this profoundly inspiring hit is the perfect soundtrack for Mother’s Day. Admired for openly discussing the struggle between a busy career and motherhood, ‘Closer To My Dreams’ celebrates Stacey finding success later in life, encouraging listeners to never give up on their aspirations.
