Latimore was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. At just five years old his love and passion for music began when he was exposed to the Motown group The Temptations, through their self-titled 1998 movie. This movie became his teacher for his future career as he spent weeks learning all the songs and dance moves. Four years later at age nine, Latimore made the brave decision to produce his first song “Best Friend.”
Jacob Latimore didn’t begin to pick up recognition in the music industry until he was found by Radio Disney who then featured him on their program featuring up and coming artists.
He then gained exposure to other artists and his career began to take off. Two years later he released a new single called “Superstar” which found its way onto the Billboard R&B and Hip Hop charts.
Then three years later he made a deal and signed with Jive Records. Around the same time he began to heavily immerse himself in acting as well picking up gigs such as Ride Along.
Latimore attributes artists such as Ne-Yo, Usher, Chris Brown, Michael Jackson, Mario, Brandy, and the temptations to his influence in music style.
