This may just be the proudest I’ve ever been of all we’ve been able to accomplish. Not we as in my brother and I, but we being the readers, the artists that have promoted the site, and the people who have been able to do anything to further this movement. On the first day of this website’s existence I put up an artist profile for a true artist that a friend of mine knew from a travel basketball team by the name of Jon Bellion. His genre-less approach to music and true passion for what he was doing really inspired me and its supporting artists like him that has made this experience so rewarding.
Today Jon released the official video for the first single Paper Planes off his debut album Translations Through Speakers. Due out later this fall, it is released through Visionary Music Group, the same label that manages rising stars Logic and Tayyib Ali and if you haven’t heard anything from him before, you’re in for an audiorgasm. Crooning vocals, beautiful productions, thoughtful and intricately lyrical bars make him a complete package and a force to be reckoned with in the future. Check the video enjoy watching the climb and hit the jump if you want to see what my introduction to him was that solidified it for me.
