New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Jethro 'Alonestar' Sheeran, cousin of MTV's 2017 'Artist of the Year,' Ed Sheeran, has revealed that success in the music business has caused a huge rift in his family.
"Music is about the spirit first but the business has divided us all. It has caused huge problems in my family and myself and Edward (Ed)," Alonestar disclosed recently.

The point of contention is the 15-track reggae album 'Tropical House Cruises to Jamaica,' that was released digitally last December by Contractor Music Group based in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. The project includes songs by Wyclef Jean, Sean Kingston, Safaree, Sean Paul, Chronixx, Vybz Kartel, Mojo Morgan, Contractor and Stephen Marley. 'Tropical House Cruises to Jamaica' debuted at #2 on the Billboard Reggae Charts and has spent four consecutive weeks in the top spot. The disc contains three songs that Ed recorded before he got signed to his current label Asylum Atlantic. Because of contractual obligations with the label, Ed reportedly is unable do any promotion for the disc to boost global sales.

Ed's "Shape of You" on the other hand was one of the biggest songs globally for 2017. The dancehall-infused pop song was named bestselling song of 2017 by Nielsen Music. The Grammy Award winning single debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, selling 240,000 downloads and gaining 20 million streams in its debut week in the US. It peaked at number-one on the singles charts of 34 countries and in September 2017 became the most streamed song on Spotify, with over 1.32 billion streams.
"Me, Edward (Ed) and our family have made music since we were children" Alonestar stated.
"Ed supports me 100% but his managers try to block everyone let alone his blood family against his career...It is so sad" he said.

Alonestar pours his heart in a soon to be released single that features hip hop legend Tupac and his brother Mopreme Shakur. The track will be released on a various artists compilation hip hop album later this summer.
"I explain everything about the rift in the song" Alonestar said.

The new song was produced by Jethro Sheeran Music, Mopreme Shakur and is executive produced by The Contractor Music Group.
