After impressing audiences with “The Ocean,” Urban AC chart-topping singer/songwriter K’Jon arrives at Billboard with a top 10 charting debut this week. “I Get Around,” K’Jon’s Universal Republic debut, arrives at no.5 on the R&B chart. Led by the break up to make up track “This Time,” K’Jon’s “I Get Around” is proving to be an infectious hit for R&B fans and music industry tastemakers. In fact, the USA Today praised K’Jon’s major label debut for its ‘distinctive phrasing and thoughtful songwriting which sets K’Jon apart…his ship has finally come in…’ While the praise and acclaim is great, K’Jon remains humble and thankful to those who saw his vision and those who are catching on now. “I’m a big believer in establishing your identity, but first and foremost knowing who you are before you try and win over others,” he says. “I thank everyone on the Universal Republic team for letting this album be that introduction. I also thank all my fans. A lot of my songs speak to the notion about working your dream from the ground up, and they have been a big inspiration to me. I’m grateful for the opportunity, and excited about where the journey is headed next.”
