Devante Swing and Jackson 5

Who didn’t love them some DeVante Swing back when Jodeci wanted us to forever be their lady?

Since that time, the producer/songwriter has gone through some ish, including a reported 2013 drug-related arrest and another 2010 arrest for public drunkenness.

But now it looks like he’s on the road to wellness. This week, a fan uploaded a video of the producer backstage with Jackson 5 and Flavor Flav after a Jackson 5 show in Vegas on Monday night and he looks to be doing pretty good.

The fan posted:

DeVante Gave Us permission to post other exclusive footage!!! . .. . .. . .. Thank you DeVante!! DeVante always wanted to work with the Jackson’s Last night was Surreal

Timbaland, Devante Swing, Larry Jackson

This sighting comes four months after Interscope exec Larry Jackson posted a half-shot of DeVante in the studio with Timbaland, along with the caption:

Timbaland x LJ x Devante Swing. Mix session for first Jodeci album in 17 years! The reunion is on. Think I was a freshman in high school when these guys were last out. #Collaboration #WeWorkSundays #NoDaysOff

Who’s ready for some new Jodeci?!

      awwww this is actually sweet.

      And it’s interesting that Timbaland took a turn for the better in his career, and after the whole rumours surrounding the mistreatment Devante did to Tim and others, it’s like Karma caught up with him… for a lack of a better word

      I am HAPPY to see he is on the road to recovery. Drug abuse or any kind of substance is definitely disheartening to see, especially when it’s loved ones, so I wish him success and health above ALL… and I hope he enjoys the rest of his life in a healthy state.

      Kudos to Tim and him for making a pact to reconnect.

      Most definitely. Devante created a whole movement with his talent. Timbaland, Missy, Playa, Ginuwine and everybody else in Da Bassment.

      I love this dude

        Don’t forget Tweet was part of the Basement too and Missy’s girl group Sista. Maybe Magoo but i’m not sure. DeVante was the best. “Do you believe in love and promise that it gives I want to love you for life cause your love is why I live”…… I love the song K-Ci and JoJo were singing at the opening of that music video at the piano.

          Love watching Jodeci Music Videos because they remind me of a time where there were music videos that had actual video models. Video Hoes were regulated to late night music videos.

      So true! He is truly gifted! He is a great writer, producer, composer…and until I saw a video of him playing the piano, I never would have given him the credit he deserved as a true musician/artist. He did create a movement, and those first couple Jodeci albums are classics.

  17. dc says:

    D*MN,I didn’t even recognize DeVante, he doesn’t look the same, smh. I loved me some Jodeci back in the day, lol. On a side note, I never liked any of the Jackson brothers except Michael, and I just wanna slap the holy h*ll outta Jermaines a** every time I see him, because I’ve always thought he was the shadiest brother outta all of them, and somebody needs to tell him to ease up on the shoe polish, cause his hair looks like somebody glued some leather on his head.

    • mar says:

      Shoe polish AND leather? Lol…I remember watching their show and Jermaine’s wife tried to kiss him once but he didn’t want her to touch him because it would mess up his hair…lol
      Jermaine always seemed to be that one brother who was jealous of Michael’s accomplishments…None of them had what Michael had…

      • dc says:

        @MAR- I agree. I can still see the press conference in my head that Jermaine gave a few hours after Michael died, smh, to me, it just screamed look at ME. I know the family had to make an announcement, but it was just the way Jermaine did it.

        • Beverly says:

          I love myself some JERMAINE JACKSON. He danced,sang, and played his heart out when he was with the Jackson 5 and when he went solo SAME STORY! Not only is he handsome, he’s an OUTSTANDING PERFORMER! Y’all need to stop acting BRAND NEW like y’all forgot who sang back up for Michael. I LOVE ALL THE JACKSON BROTHERS! Joe did an excellent job with ALL those boys.
