Randy Jones New Single 'Hard Times'

By Maria Esteves – August 26, 2017
The amazing dance single 'Hard Times' by Randy Jones (RJ) released by Young Pals Music with remix compilations by world renowned DJs Drew G, Eric Kupper, Mark Saunders, and Tim Cox available on Amazon, Apple and Young Pal Music store. The single "Hard Times" is unveiled in Ayhan Sahin's pop album "POP."

While this year, the Village People recording group celebrates their 40th Anniversary, and this Sunday is the 34th annual MTV Video Music Awards in California, RJ, the original cowboy from the Village People new single ‘Hard Times’ hit the Billboard Dance Chart at number 42.

Born: September 13, 1952 in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA
Liz Smith, the premier entertainment columnist in New York, once predicted that Randy Jones, embodying the persona of the cowboy, would be the first of the Village People to achieve individual fame. And she was right! Charming and handsome, RJ has become celebrated internationally not only as the sexy Cowboy of the award winning group, but also as a world class bon vivant shooting to stardom and selling in excess of 90 million units to date.

Having starred with Village People in the motion picture, Can't Stop The Music (directed by Nancy Walker and co-starring Valerie Perrine), RJ's face and/or voice have also appeared in the films, Tales of Poe, BearCity, Against the Wind, An Affirmative Act, Nutty Professor Ii: The Klumps, In & Out, As Good As It Gets, Down Periscope, The Adventures Of Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert, Wayne's World 2, Addams Family Values, One Night At Mccool's, Dumb & Dumberer, Je Te Tiens and Big Trouble. Among his many television appearances have been American Bandstand, Musikladen, Soul Train, The Merv Griffin Show, The Tonight Show, NBC's The Big Show, several Bob Hope Specials, Married With Children, Don Kirshner's Rock Concert, multiple hostings of Midnight Special, Oprah Winfrey, The American Music Awards, Love Boat, ABC's 20/20, two consecutive years of New Year's Rockin' Eve with Dick Clark, NBC daytime drama, Texas, The Bernie Mac Show, VH-1's Behind The Music, Legends, The Rosie O'Donnell Show, The Simpsons, King Of The Hill, VH-1's It's Only Rock & Roll, BBC's Top Of the POPS, Live With Regis And Kelly, The Tonight Show, VH-1's I Love The 70s, Hollywood Rocks The Movies, and even Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Showered with commendations in his career, including the keys to several American cities, RJ counts the American Music Award, the Georgie Award, presented by the American Guild of Variety Artists, and the Billboard Dance Forum Award as perfect companions to Germany's prestigious Golden Lion and Bravo Awards, presented for Popular Music Excellence, not to mention the more than 75 Gold and Platinum records garnered worldwide. RJ is an American Library Association Nominated Author for his book, Outsounds. His place defined as an icon in popular culture history, RJ's accomplishments have been cited in The World Book Encyclopedia, Guinness' Book Of Hits, Dick Clark's First Twenty-Five Years Of Rock `N Roll, and The Rolling Stone Illustrated History Of Rock & Roll. He has also been featured in the VH-1 History Of Rock & Roll as well as profiled in the E! True Hollywood Story.
