New Universal Republic Hitmaker K’Jon ‘Gets Around’ Up And Over With Top 15 Album Debut

kjon-05

(August 17, 2009 – Brooklyn, NY) Accomplished newcomer K’Jon scored one of the most impressive R&B crossover debuts of the year, with his new Universal Republic album I Get Around landing in the Top 15 of the Billboard Top Albums chart this week. The eye-opening debut, logging in at # 12 and # 5 on the R&B chart, is due in large part to the Detroit native’s epic first single, “On The Ocean,” which already reigns as one of 2009’s smash hit dual-qualifiers – a certified radio and club smash. The classic single owned the nightlife grid for months as a popular ‘stepping’ song before becoming one of the most requested urban radio hits of the year. “On The Ocean” locked the #1 spot at the Urban AC format for more than a month, with radio listeners and online music followers extending the grassroots wave stirred by the song’s soulful message of perseverance. “On The Ocean” was also a multiple format radio-record breaker, making the biggest vault to #1 in BDS-based chart history, overtaking the previous high-water mark set by superstar Alicia Keys with her 2001 classic “Fallen.”

Diddy & Felix Da Housecat Lectro Black Mixtape Download

Why??? This is the same guy behind Mary, Biggie, Total, etc. He could’ve borrowed anyone to add some soul to this but if he wanted electro why not Juan Atkins, Jeff Mills, Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson or Green Velvet? Diddy is a dancer so this is inexecusable. Diddy is one of the only people on the planet that could bring house music back and instead he does this suburban-friendly pop with a known dance producer. He needs to be for real and go get Cajmere, Dajae,Kenny Bobien,Kerri Chandler, Steve “Silk” Hurley, or Masters At Work etc. and call it a day.
