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.”

Interview With K’Jon

“My mission statement is to put out feel good music and to uplift the R&B lovers”

K’Jon’s meditative “On The Ocean” is quelling the inner turmoil of an R&B nation dealing with a dire economy, health care issues and a new Black president. Hailing from Detroit, a city of tall musical merit going through severe political and economic ignominy he wrote his hit song came from a place of peaceful resilience in the face of his own personal challenges. Oddly enough the song’s soothing qualities almost conceal the rolling rhythm underneath that has snared the feet of ballroom dancers around the country. The so-called urban adult contemporary music slot never had this much life in a song and exceeded its usual watery expectations with a sound politically analogous to Lionel Richie’s crossovers. Earlier stints as an independent artist and songwriter produced the Latin tinted “Miami” on the 2 Fast 2 Furious soundtrack and got him gigs opening for the likes of Ludacris, Ginuwine, Ne-Yo and T-Pain. Interest in his artistry reached a nadir this week with the release of his first album I Get Around and K’Jon spoke with Kickmag about his journey into a fulltime music career and why “On The Ocean” means so much to him.
