Award-winning rapper and iHeart Radio Future Star Winner, Peter Jackson is thrilled to release his new single and music video, “Mountain Valley featuring Trey Songz”. Notable for his pop/ hip-hop track “On a Wave”, Peter Jackson has become a rising North American hip-hop artist who has collaborated with some of the best recording artists in the business. During the span of his impressive career, Jackson has toured with some of the world’s leading hip-hop artists such as French Montana, Sean Kingston, 50 Cent, Akon, Juicy J, Waka Flocka, Jadakiss, Machine Gun Kelly, Wu-Tang Clan, Akon, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, D-Block and more.
This year, Peter Jackson is making waves with the release of “Mountain Valley”, in collaboration with Virginia-born contemporary R&B singer Trey Songz. Peter Jackson looks to recreate the success of Marvin Gaye’s 1967 classic duet, “Ain’t no Mountain High Enough”, with his own new modern day take on the hit.
Produced by KeanuGoinStoopid, JBat, and Pilot Beats, “Mountain Valley” is an upbeat track that features a slick production beat and vocals, and is the first of several new singles on the way to support Jackson’s next album, slated for the second quarter of 2022.
The song is about believing in yourself, and remembering that no matter what you dream of, no mountain is too high. It’s a testament to Jackson’s self-made success in the entertainment business, and his ability to overcome the obstacles that have been thrown in front of him, no matter how big the challenge.
“It started as just a gift for my mentor and friend, but he saw it as a lot more, and wanted to see it come to life for me. I’ve spent this last year working on myself and bettering my life. Music will always be first and foremost to me, but I had to get my mind, and soul correct. My mentor helped me do that, so, in return, seeing this song come out as the album’s first single and really succeeding means absolutely everything to me.” said Jackson of the release.
Along with the new song, “Mountain Valley” will be released with video support directed by Shawn Thomas of Canadian Film Coalition. The vibrant and energetic clip was shot over the span of a few days between Los Angeles and Malibu, California, and comes as Jackson’s first visual offering since tapping Jim Jones for “Fell” back in February 2021.
Peter Jackson’s new album In God’s Hands will be his first project since releasing his 23 & A Half EP in June 2020. Along with Trey Songz, it will feature 2021 BET Hip Hop Award-winner Yung Bleu, and more.
About Peter Jackson Over the past several years, 9-0-Nickel Entertainment CEO Peter Jackson has established himself as one of the hardest working rappers in Canada, and an independent force in navigating the trenches of the modern music industry.
Known for his intense work ethic—in the studio, boardroom, and on the road—Jackson has spent the past few years touring Canada and Europe with some of the biggest artists in hip-hop, and performing at some major events on the national stage. He served as the supporting act for 50 Cent at the 2017 Calgary Stampede, performed alongside Fetty Wap at the 2019 Grey Cup celebrations, and was on a Canadian arena tour as the supporting act for international icon, Snoop Dogg. In 2019, Jackson headlined his first solo tour across Canada, while also doing 22 shows across Europe with Fetty Wap that same year.
Touring (and also booking tours for other artists through his own agency) has evidently kept Jackson busy, but he’s still found time in his schedule to drop a string of chart-topping releases.
In addition to being Virgin iHeart Radio’s Future Star for April 2019, Jackson’s Married to Success single “On a Wave,” charted well across the country on Canadian Hit Radio (CHR), and reached the #29 spot on Billboard’s Top 100. His 2019 album, Canadian Boy, debuted at #1 on iTunes and Apple Music’s Hip Hop/Rap chart, featuring seven songs and six videos, with over 1 million streams and more than 2 million views. Just over a year later in June 2020, 23 & A Half would debut at #1, with the Fetty Wap-assisted lead single, “If It’s You,” racking up over 5 million streams across all digital streaming platforms, and pulling in over 1.1 million views on the accompanying video.
Along with some other big singles in his catalogue—including “Hold Up” with YG and Mazze and “Can’t Get Enough” featuring Jadakiss, Sheek Louch, and Styles P of The Lox, and Jay Vado— Jackson has also found success through his support for the Toronto Raptors. During the Raptors’ 2017-2018 playoff run, Jackson spent five weeks on the Billboard charts with his We The North EP, peaking at number three on the Top 100 in Canada behind fellow Canadians, Drake and Justin Bieber. Jackson also made appearances on all of the major Canadian news networks to perform and promote the anthem and sold over 30,000 copies across the country.
In recent years, Jackson has seen an increase in press coverage on major platforms and has also been recognized officially several times for his accomplishments. Over the past few years, Jackson has been awarded various Canadian Urban Television Awards including Music Video of the Year (2018) and Director of the Year (2017) for “On a Wave,” Event Promoter of the Year (2017), Collaboration of the Year (2017), Mixtape of the Year for Good Company, Music Video of the Year for “Havana” (featuring Waka Flocka Flame), Rap Album of the Year (2015) for Since I was 16, and Album of the Year (2016) for Two Sides to a Story. Jackson has also been nominated for Hip Hop Artist of the Year at the Independent Music Awards.
After generating a buzz in 2021 the Jim Jones-assisted “Fell,” and the cross-continental video pulling in over 230K views, Jackson’s 2022 campaign started off on a high note with the release of “Hundred Roses.” The single would become his latest release to claim a #1 spot on iTunes, and set the stage nicely for the release of his next album, In God’s Hands, expected mid-2022. Promotions for the album will officially kick off on Feb. 11 with the release of the album’s lead single, “Mountain Valley,” featuring contemporary R&B hitmaker, Trey Songz. The KeanuGoinStoopid, JBat, and Pilot Beats-produced record is a modern day take on the classic duet “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.”
