In the boyband craze of the 1990’s, pop culture was saturated by groups of teenage boys hoping to dance and sing their way into the spotlight. One such group was 3T.
This trio of brothers Taj Jackson, Taryll Jackson, and TJ Jackson set out to make their mark under the guidance of their famous uncle, the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson.
In 1996 they released their debut album Brotherhood which sold 3 million copies worldwide. They released several singles including a duet with their uncle Michael called “Why” which I had on repeat as a kid. They went on to have amazing European success, being ranked second behind The Spice Girls as the biggest selling group in Europe in 1996.
With the clout of a musical family and an icon as an uncle you would think this group would certainly have long term success. Alas, it was not to be so. By the end of the 90’s they’re star had fizzled, their European success never really translating to America. This was heavily due to the strained relationship between Sony Music and Michael Jackson (who was their manager).
The brothers went on to do very well for themselves. After attempts as solo artists,small European tours, and a reality show, they started writing and producing music for their aunt Janet Jackson and other artists like Bruno Mars and Lindsay Lohan.
With the untimely death of Michael, TJ became co legal guardian with his grandmother of Michael’s children Paris Jackson and Prince Michael Jackson, helping raise them to adulthood. He also became sole guardian to Michael’s youngest child Blanket Jackson.
Most recently Taj is working on producing a documentary about his uncle. Taryll Jackson has been making waves in the EDM world and recently released a single called “The Next Time I Fall in Love”.TJ has just released a new EP called Obsession and it is certified fire.
It’s nice to know that this generation of the Jackson dynasty continues to make music no matter what.
