As a teen, he joined the R&B group 4th and Ocean, recording music for Warner Bros. Records. Following the group’s split, he caught the attention of Balistic Beats and dropped the single “Pree.”The music made its way to Cash Money Records and Eighty8 was signed to the roster in 2020.

IT’S A KELVYN BOY’S WORLD

internationally acclaimed, award-winning, Ghanian superstar Kelvyn Boy sets his sight on a 2022 world take-over as he prepares for his world tour kicking off this week in Germany with North American, Canadian, U.K., and other European dates to follow.

A fixture in the growing reception for music deriving from continental Africa, Kelyvn Boy, today, is most known as one of the first artists to bring the sound of Afrobeats to Ghana to make compelling music that connects listeners of all walks to all aspects of music and sounds from Africa with both continental and international standpoints. Kelyvn Boy’s latest release, Down Flat is a tenement for this claim as a success for the single continues to amass international success in Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Bermuda, Guinea-Bissau, and more. The single topped Apple Music’s Top 100 (Ghana) playlist at number one and ranked top ten on Billboard’s worldwide digital song sale charts, among many other achievements. The official music video stands currently at 5 + million views via YouTube since its release earlier this year. Watch HERE.

Within the last few years, the beloved artist has shot to superstardom—becoming one of Ghana’s most-streamed acts while spreading his wings to all corners of the globe. In 2020, Kelvyn Boy interviewed Billboard to discuss his aim to ‘Bring Ghana to the Grammys’ after releasing his second project “Black Star.” The sophomore effort received critical praise, gained a nomination at the Ghana Music Awards for ‘Best Album Of The Year,’ and earned Kelvyn the status of a rising Afrobeats superstar mastering unique artistry. With more music to come later this year and his worldwide tour, all roads lead to Kelvyn making his case as an African international superstar poised for esteemed global success. 

Kelvin Brown known by his stage name Kelvyn Boy is an Afrobeats crusader and a household name in the Ghanaian Afro-Pop /Highlife space. The young musician and songwriter is a native of Assin Fosu in the Eastern region of Ghana. He has swiftly gained waves of interest in the local music industry and the world at large with his fresh sound and peculiar approach to the genre he chooses, which is setting him apart from his peers. Kelvyn Boy’s passion for music started at an early age when he used to sing with every opportunity that came his way. In 2008, he got his first musical opportunity to sing in churches, and from that time he got noticed for his melodious voice and thereafter was recommended by others. In 2010 he was performing at Karaoke nights and pubs. The passionate artiste has been influenced musically by Michael Jackson, Osibisa, Fela Kuti, and Bob Marley, who he says still inspire him because of their work ethic. He mastered the process of his music writing skills in 2012 and began adding his vocals on beats. He looks to soar higher in his music career just like his predecessors.

Kelvyn Boy has a unique musical style derived from his desire to sing and compose lyrics with everything happening around him. His soulful side, which he adopted from regularly singing in church, makes his sound very melodic. He, however, hopes to develop his music career around these various genres; Afro-beats, Afro-pop, Reggae, Dancehall, Highlife, or a fusion of ‘feel-good genres’ for music lovers. He plans to study and create his unique sound out of what he has learned from these amazing music genres. Generally, the theme of his songs is woven around romantic and uplifting themes.

With his soulful voice and electrifying performances, he has attracted a growing fanbase across the world having staged performances in Belgium at the ‘Bomboclat Festival’, an experience he highlights as one of the best in his entire career and life. He has also performed in Australia, Jamaica, the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Sierra Leone, and other countries sharing the same stage with acts like Ziggy Marley, Chronixx, Busy Signal, Serani, Afro B, and other great and popular music personalities.

Kelvyn Boy is currently signed unto Blakk Arm Group and has already released hit singles like Mea” and “Momo”. He also released one of the most listened to EPs in Ghana titled “TIME” in June 2019 and also his “BLACK STAR” Album released in November 2020 was nominated at the Ghana Music Awards for Best Album Of The Year. He has been featured and also featured other artists on numerous songs, he has collaborated with artists like Mr. Vegas, Sarkodie, Manifest, Kwesi Arthur, Medikal, Kojo Funds, Kidi, and some new artists both in Ghana and other countries.

A legend-in-the-making Kelvyn boy says: “Making decisions based on emotions make bad career decisions, so instead, I put it in my music. I am working with my band to create more exciting live band shows, and I will continue to record great musical pieces. I’m always creating new and distinct music materials

Michael Jackson’s Thriller album turns 40 via 360 MAGAZINE

Four Decads of Thriller

Sony Music and the Estate of Michael Jackson announced that it will celebrate the 40th anniversary of Michael Jackson’s Thriller. The biggest selling album of all time.

The November 18 release of Michael Jackson Thriller 40 is a double CD set comprised of Michael’s original masterpiece Thriller. The second disc will be full of surprises for fans. It will include never-released tracks which were worked on by Michael for the Thriller album. To date, the album has amassed in excess of 100 million in sales worldwide.

In the US, Walmart will have an exclusive version of the original Thriller album with an alternate 40th anniversary cover, while Target will have an exclusive version of the original album with a commemorative Thriller 40 vinyl slip mat.  Both of these will also be available outside the US from various retailers.

Mastered from the original analog master tapes, Mobile Fidelity will also make available the original Thriller album as a One-Step 180g 33RPM LP, pressed at RTI and strictly limited to 40,000 numbered copies as well as a hybrid SACD . (An UltraDisc One-Step 180g 45RPM 2LP set of Thriller will be released at a future date.)

Visit HERE for further information and to Pre-Order.

Several activations are planned between now and the end of the year to honor Michael’s epic creation which won a record setting 8 Grammys, smashed musical barriers and changed the frontiers of pop music and videos forever.  Michael Jackson’s Thriller has spent more than 500 weeks on the Billboard album chart and has sold over 100 million albums since its release on November 30, 1982. The first such activation is the first drop of new merchandise featuring the special Thriller 40 logo which is now available exclusively through the MichaelJackson.com Official Site.

MORE ABOUT THRILLER:

Thriller holds a modern-day record of 37 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard. It was the first album in history to spend each of its first 80 weeks in the album chart’s Top 10, a feat only reached by one other album in the nearly four decades since. During its 112th week on Billboard’s album chart, it became the first title ever to be certified RIAA 20X multi-Platinum (October 30, 1984) and became the first title ever to be certified more than RIAA 30X multi-Platinum in 2015 and since has been certified at 34x Multi-Platinum.  

Worldwide, Thriller went to #1 in practically every country in the world, including the UK, France, Italy, Australia, Denmark, Belgium, South Africa, Spain, Ireland, New Zealand, Canada and apartheid South Africa and remains the biggest selling album of all time with sales in excess of 100 million.  Seven tracks from the album became Top 10 singles, and three, Beat It, Billie Jean, and Thriller, went No. 1. 

The music on Thriller was so singular for the time it defied any definition of rock, pop or soul that had gone before. Beat It was a new kind of pop-rock hybrid and demolished the longstanding segregation between black and white music with Eddie Van Halen’s incendiary guitar. On The Girl Is Mine, two men, one white and one Black, banter about the same girl. On the same album were songs like the African-rooted Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin and the rhythm and blues-based Billie Jean.   

Michael set out to revolutionize how to tell a story and entertain on a grand scale through film but faced roadblocks. Despite the luscious cinematography, dramatic narrative and spectacular choreography of Billie Jean, a fledgling MTV, which was programming white rock artists almost exclusively, refused to play it. Epic persisted. Once the wall came crashing down, MTV’s ratings soared and a door was opened for a generation of African American artists. “He was MTV’s Jackie Robinson,” said cultural critic Touré.

Next, came the unforgettable short film for Beat It, which featured Michael bringing two gangs together through the power of music and dance. And then there was Thriller. Premiered at the AVCO Theatre in Los Angeles in 1983, it sold out every night for three weeks. No other video before or since has generated such excitement and has such a hold on our attention, such that 40 years later we all share it as a collective memory and it remains the only music video to be inducted into the elite National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.

Music from Thriller and other hit albums are featured in the Vegas show Michael Jackson ONE, at the Michael Jackson ONE Theater at Mandalay Bay as well as the acclaimed Broadway play MJ The Musical at the Neil Simon Theatre in NYC, which was nominated for 10 Tony Awards. Michael Jackson One by Cirque du Soleil is an electrifying fusion of dance as well as acrobatics which wows audiences. Powered by his greatest hits in a state-of-the-art surround sound atmosphere. ONE takes the audience on a visual expedition–63 overly artistic dancers engaged in extensive choreography.

Michael has sold more than 1 billion records and remains one of the top streaming artists of all time.

Slump6s – Origin

After piling up tens of millions of streams and views independently, 16-year-old Rochester, NY hip-hop artist Slump6s unleashes a new single and music video entitled “Origin” via Field Trip Recordings/Republic Records.

On the track, a string sample and a claustrophobic beat drive the frenetic production as his hyperactive delivery bursts with energy. It illuminates his ability to flip like a switchblade between punchy verses and a chantable hook. With its psychedelic filters and rapid cuts, the accompanying visual reflects this kinetic motion as he turns up outside in Los Angeles. It also arrives on the heels of his latest single “Moment,” which Elevator Magazine highlighted the rapper as “part of the new generation of soundcloud rappers who are taking the internet by storm,” and Our Generation Music noted his “melodic delivery is able to adapt as the instrumental starts with a wavy synth and leads into heavier 808s”. However, everything just sets the stage for more music to come from Slump6s. Be on the lookout.

About Slump6s
As the culture evolves, the boundaries of hip-hop continue to expand as well. However, Slump6s pushes those limits even farther. The 16-year-old Rochester, NY artist and rapper wields his voice like an instrument. Rather than gliding atop beats or charging against them, his vocals entangle with the production, moving in calculated harmonic bursts of emotion. Growing up in Rochester, he studied and memorized videos of Michael Jackson on YouTube. Dad owned a studio and often recorded friends. By six-years-old, Slump6s would sing over pop’s beats and record himself. Throughout school, he participated in band and learned clarinet, trombone, trumpet, and drums. In eighth grade, he started to upload music to Soundcloud as an escape. At the top of 2020, he dropped “Spark” and ignited palpable buzz. As he piled on streams with singles such as “Up It” and his independent 16 EP, he attracted a rabid audience on social media. He rode this momentum into 2021, meeting BabySantana on Discord and teaming up for the breakout single “Antisocial.” Right out of the gate, it generated 27.9 million Spotify streams and 1.3 million views on the music video championed by Wav Guide and more. Landing a deal with Field Trip Recordings/Republic Records, he sharpened his signature style as only a sophomore in high school. After racking up 20 million-plus streams independently, he masterfully leans into an ever-evolving melodic sensibility on a series of singles in 2021 led by “Moment.”

Generating nearly 3 million Spotify streams independently, receiving acclaim from Hip Hop DX, Hip Hop N More, On Smash and signing to Cash Money Records in 2020, he’s ready to formally introduce himself. He adopted his name during a period of self-discovery after learning that the number 8 represents a sense of power and exemplifies peace and unity. 

Born and raised on the North Side of Miami, at three-years-old, he realized he could sing and spent hours replaying an old Michael Jackson VHS as he obsessively studied the King of Pop. Throughout middle school, he sang to girls in the hallway and shutdown the stage with show-stopping performances at pep rallies and talent shows. As a teen, he joined the R&B group 4thand Ocean, recording music for Warner Bros. Records. Following the group’s split, he caught the attention of Balistic Beats and dropped the single “Pree.” Not only did it light up radio in Miami, the song amassed 1.6 million Spotify streams. On its heels, he maintained this momentum with “Trilly Wonka,” which accumulated another 561K Spotify streams. The music made its way to Cash Money Records and Eighty8 was signed to the roster in 2020.
