JON BON JOVI
- By RICH ANDREW
Songwriter, philanthropist, and the quintessential rockstar. The great Jon Bon Jovi keeps giving us everything we’ve ever wanted — timeless love ballads, powerhouse vocals, and beautifully bad ass rock ’n roll.
Bon Jovi: 2020 marks his fifteenth studio album boasting ten tracks about topical subjects that capitalize on the singer’s social consciousness. The record’s first release Unbroken speaks poignantly to the reality of war veterans battling PTSD. And the second single Limitless is about braving the brutal world with poetic lyrics that crescendo into a sweeping chorus. Both tracks capture Bon Jovi’s signature raspy belt, prove the band’s massive staying power in the music industry, and tease a brilliant album of emotionally charged rock anthems.
During these trying times, the band’s contribution to their fans continues long past the music. Bon Jovi recently performed at the Jersey 4 Jersey benefit show to help the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund. He has emboldened his fanbase with a supplemental track called Do What You Can, inviting them to add their own lyrics and share their experiences about the pandemic. And his nonprofit chain of JBJ Soul Kitchens continues to generously provide meals for those folks in need struggling to feed their families, where you might even find Bon Jovi himself washing dishes alongside his staff. The man is an icon. Bon Jovi: 2020 drops March 15th.
