In the “Jackpot” music video, shot by Davide Bastolla (Bastimotion), Federico meets Chricchio (Christian Dei), an average teenage boy going through the typical problems of his age, such as love troubles and fights against school bullies. When Federico runs into Chricchio, he gives him a special walkman that completely changes Chricchio’s life. Chricchio overcomes all of his fears and manages to win the girl of his dreams over — played by the famous Italian tiktoker Jennifer Preda.
“Jackpot” has been written by Federico Baroni and Federico Sambugaro Baldini and produced by Riccardo Scirè. The song has been released two years after “Non pensarci”, Federico’s first album which peaked #22 of the FIMI (the Italian Weekly Music Chart of the bestselling albums) on its release date and was presented to the public with the first Italian “outstore”.
“Jackpot” is a pop song, reflecting on the importance of freedom in our life. Behind a funky rhythm, there is a deep analysis of what life has been during the past year, with our own freedom being strongly limited.
Federico Baroni states that: «In the first part of “Jackpot”, I sing about how sometimes we only have futile desires and go after appearance rather than substance. Thanks to music, I realized that the most important thing is sharing moments with our loved ones — this is what the second part of the song is about. Freedom is fundamental to live happily with ourselves and others. With “Jackpot” I want my listeners to think about what we have taken for granted before and what we really learned to appreciate in the past year».
