It’s summer so that means it’s time to get up and dance! LA-based artist, Jazzy Ash and her band want to help you get moving with her new single, Teddy Bear.

The track is the first off her new album which will be a six-song Soul/Doo-wop/Motown EP releasing this fall. Jazzy Ash puts a new spin on the go-to jump rope song, and you can already catch the video which features kids showing off their moves while at home.

Written with the Black community in mind, Ashli St. Armant (aka Jazzy Ash), says “The most resilient thing about Black Americans is our ability to find joy in the midst of darkness. Here’s a new song and video I made with my community. I hope you enjoy it, and maybe give yourself permission to dance.”

The song is now available on iTunes and Spotify.
