Born in Los Angeles, the award-winning multiplatinum superstar Robin Thicke taught himself to play piano at the age of 12 and by 16 was writing and producing songs for artists including Brandy, Color Me Badd, and Brian McKnight. By the age of 21, he had written and produced songs on over 20 gold and platinum albums including those from Michael Jackson, Marc Anthony, Pink, Christina Aguilera, and others.
Thicke’s recently released single, “Blurred Lines,” features T.I. and Pharrell, is a bona fide worldwide smash, having reached No.1 in 80 countries to date. The track is the first single from Thicke’s sixth studio album, which is due to be released this summer and has already crossed a number of radio formats. He has toured with Beyonce and Mary J Blige, and been honored with the VH1 Soul/Vibe award for “Best Breakthrough Artist,” as well as received nominations from BET, MTV, and the American Music Awards.
Two albums in from bursting on the scene in 2009, Jason Derulo has sold over 15 million tracks domestically with almost 10 billion in cumulative radio audience and nearly 700 million views on his YouTube channel due to a string of Top 10 singles: "Watcha Say," "In My Head," "Ridin' Solo," "Don't Wanna Go Home" and "It Girl." The talented performer has sealed his reputation as a global chart-topping star. He was a five-time winner at the BMI Pop Awards, including being honoured as “Songwriter of the Year” in 2011. Derulo has also received a string of nominations including nods from the Teen Choice Awards, the MTV Europe Music Awards, the MOBO Awards and others.
His third album, Tattoos, hits stores this fall. The lead-single, “The Other Side,” is produced by Ammo (Katy Perry, Ke$ha) and Martin Johnson (Taylor Swift, Hot Chelle Rae, Hannah Montana, The Used), and became the No. 1 most added record on the Top 40 charts in 2013 with over 120 adds across the country in its first week: just 25 stations short of the all-time record set by former touring mate Lady Gaga. The track is currently Top 5 at mainstream radio across the United States, and an international success, as well.
RCA Records singer, songwriter and producer Sammy Adams premiered the official video for his new single “LA Story,” which was co-written by Adams along with Ryan Tedder, Noel Zancanella, Mike Posner and Oren Yoel on July 16th. The artist is currently in the studio working on his debut RCA Records album coming later this year and recently co-wrote and was featured on Enrique Iglesias’ single “Finally Found You” which made it to the Top 10 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and was certified gold by the RIAA.
Last summer, Adams premiered the official video for his explosive summer single, “Only One,” and late last year, he released OK Cool, his pre-album (mixtape) which featured a snippet of his track “All Night Longer.” In early 2012, Adams debuted the music video for his first single, “Blow Up,” and made his nationwide television debut on “Conan.” Adams burst into the music scene in 2010, after releasing his breakthrough single “I Hate College” — a cheeky remix of Asher’s Roth’s “I Love College,” which he recorded in his dorm room at Trinity College in Connecticut.
