Hitmaker for Chris Brown, Usher, Beyonce Steps Into the Spotlight, Garret Signs Solo Deal with Interscope

Hit songwriter, producer, and now performing artist Sean Garrett — who holds the distinction of penning no less than 12 #1 singles over the last 4 years, a track record that spans Usher’s chart-historic “Yeah!” in 2004, to Chris Brown’s “Run It” in 2005, to Fergie’s “London Bridge” in 2006, to Kelly Rowland’s “Like This” in 2007 — now takes a giant step into the spot light as a solo artist in 2008, with the release of his debut single on Bet I Penned It/Interscope Records, “Grippin'” (featuring Ludacris). “Grippin’,” which impacted at urban radio on March 4th, is the most added song in its first week out. As the first single from TURBO 919, the debut album by Sean Garrett, arrives in stores summer 2008. The promotional video for “Grippin'” was directed by veteran Hype Williams, whose credits range from Beyonce’s “Check on It” (one of Sean’s many #1 hits), to a long string of clips with Kanye West, including “Diamonds from Sierra Leone,” “Gold Digger” (featuring Jamie Foxx), “Stronger,” and others. Nicknamed “The Pen” by Jay-Z, Garrets upcoming projects in 2008 includes Whitney Houston, Raven-Symone, Michelle Williams, Ashlee Simpson, and more.
