Tha L.P is in stores Sunday April 4th
Melbourne based R&B producer J-Wess (with the help of his collective of singers and rappers) has crossed over from his start deep within the Australian R&B scene to mainstream success with his debut Top 20 single Bang This!, the Gold-selling, Top 10 follow up What Chu Want and select live performances across the country - including an appearance at Channel 10's Australia Live concert on Australia Day Eve, which was watched by over 1.5millon viewers nationally.
And now, Vicious Urban and FMR are pleased to announce that J's debut album Tha L.P. will drop in April, preceded by a new focus track Luv Ya.
Luv Ya features J-Wess, alongside Melbourne singer Kulaia and rapper Digga (both of whom featured on J's previous two singles). Kulaia's seductive lead vocal sits upon a bed of slick beats and a lazy, low slung funky bass line. Digga and J's rhyming is woven throughout, with raps and vocals giving you both perspectives on the age old "him or me", "boy-chasing-girl-chasing boy" story. Above all, the song has another J-Wess killer hook - a trademark that made Bang This! and What Chu Want staples of the Australian airwaves.
Luv Ya was serviced to radio on February 23rd. The video follows in March and is shot by the same crew who made the clips for Bang This (a former Channel [V] Ripe Clip) and What Chu Want.
The hotly anticipated J-Wess album Tha L.P. is on sale from Sunday April 4th and includes guest appearances from Melbourne's Kulaia, Digga, Lolly, Lipz, Abby Joyce, Tek, Theory and Rima, plus Sydney's Stan Bravo.CHECK OUT J-WSS AT THE FOLLOWING IN STORES:MELBOURNE presented by NOVA radioTuesday April 6th @ 2pm - HMV NORTHLAND SHOPPING CENTRE - centre stage (performance and signing)Thursday April 8th @ 3pm - HMV BOURKE ST (signing only)SYDNEY presented by NOVA radioEaster Monday April 12th @ 1pm - HMV WESTFIELD MT DRUITT - centre stage (performance and signing)Friday April 16th @ 3pm - HMV BANKSTOWN SHOPPING CENTRE - centre stage (performance and signing)BRISBANE presented by B105Saturday April 17th @ 1pm - SANITY MID CITY (signing only)
