New York, NY (Top40 Charts / The Paragon Project) The Paragon Project, a revolving collective of nationally-recognized high school artists, found a unique way to release its fourth album as schools shut down and live performances stopped due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The full project will be released as an illustrated lyric video on July 10, 2020, via YouTube. The album features songs with Truck North of The Grammy award winning band The Roots and nerdcore rapper Mega Ran.

The Paragon Project Vol. 4: Add-A-Lesson uses music to tell a coming of age story of a young adult tackling trauma, social media addiction, depression, peer pressure, substance abuse and experimentation. The project features original hip hop, R&B, and afrobeat music written, produced, and arranged by students from Grammy award winning Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center, an art-centered public high school in Columbus, Ohio.

The illustration team of Ray Styles Studio known for its vivid, socially-conscious artwork for the NBA, Cardi B, Lil Uzi Vert, Atlantic Records and Sony Records created an album-length illustrated lyric video for the album. The album will also be released across major music streaming services on July 10.

"Given what's happened this year with COVID-19 and millions of kids being out of school, this project serves as a great representation of the ups and downs that occur in a typical school year. It also gives tremendous insight into the voices of teens who are just trying to figure things out, and we've all been there before," says hip hop artist Truck North.
