Throughout her life, Coco Jones displays her versatility as a multifaceted talent. As a successful star of the newly released show Bel-Air, she continued to nurture her career as a recording artist with the release of her brand-new single “Caliber” and a host of covers and performance appearances along the way. Coco’s upcoming debut EP, set for release later this year, features “Caliber” as the first advance track.

It’s been a busy year for Coco Jones, thanks to her performance as Hilary Banks, Will Smith’s blood cousin in Peacock’s new reimagining of the iconic “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” Jones spoke to GQ about how it feels to step into such a prestigious role, and what it means for her future:

As someone who has grown up in this industry, I’ve learned that who I am, what I do, and what I bring are more than enough to make the right move.
