Natalie Maria Cole (born February 6, 1950) is an American singer, songwriter and performer. The daughter of Nat King Cole, Cole rose to musical success in the mid-1970s as a R&B artist with the hits “This Will Be”, “Inseparable” and “Our Love”. After a period of failing sales and performances due to a heavy drug addiction, Cole reemerged as a pop artist with the 1987 album, Everlasting, and her cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Pink Cadillac”.
“Jump Start”, written by Reggie and Vincent Calloway, was the first single to be released from the Everlasting album and in the wake of the success of “Pink Cadillac”, the single was re-released in the UK in 1988. “Jump Start” was produced by Reggie Calloway and would perform best in the US, going to #2 on the R&B charts #13 on the Pop charts.
