Name: J. Holiday
Find Him: @KingJHoliday
After “Between the Sheets” there was "Bed". The rhythmic bounce of “Bed” pulsated in club and bedrooms during the summer of Jay Z’s “American Gangster” and Kanye West’s “Graduation. In 2007, Def Jam and Interscope were dominating the Hip Hop and R&B charts before Capitol Records unleashed J. Holiday. The Washington D.C. native owned the bedroom through his clever and smooth sounds. The album, Bac' of My Lac, debuted on the Billboard charts at #5 selling 105,000 copies in the first week. It debuted #1 on the Hip Hop/R&B charts in the first week.
"Round 2" was his second album, which was released on March 10, 2009, and spawned the single "It's Yours." After lackluster sales and some other internal issues, J. Holiday was released from his contract at Capitol.
Holiday later signed to Island Def Jam in 2010. He blessed his fans with new music and released a new mixtape entitled M.I.A: The Lost Pages. On May 29, 2012, J. Holiday released "Sign My Name", from his upcoming third studio album.
It’s 2013, and J. Holiday is no longer on the Def Jam roster!
We knew his name was J. Holiday, but we didn’t know he would take an actual holiday.
Here's hoping for new music soon!
