NEW YORK, NY (Top40 Charts/ Atlantic Records) - Swagga Entertainment/Atlantic recording artist Pleasure P
will be among the superstars appearing at the hugely anticipated "Young Money Presents: America's Most Wanted Music
Festival." The multi-artist tour -- headlined by Lil' Wayne, and also featuring Young Jeezy, Drake, Jeremih
Boy -- gets underway today, Monday, July 27th at the Toyota Pavilion in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and then traverses North America
through early September
(see itinerary below).
The dates follow the recent release of Pleasure P's long awaited debut album, "THE INTRODUCTION OF MARCUS COOPER." The collection -- which features the #1 Urban hit single "Boyfriend #2" -- was a #1 R&B smash on the iTunes Store upon its June release.
"Under," the latest single from "THE INTRODUCTION OF MARCUS COOPER," is looking like yet another blockbuster for the Miami-based singer. The track recently reached the top 20 on the Urban airplay charts. In addition, a companion video -- directed by Erik White (Diddy, T.I., Chris Brown) -- is currently streaming on Pleasure's popular MySpace page, located at www.myspace.com/pleasurepmyspace.
"Boyfriend #2" was a #1 Urban radio sensation earlier this spring, while reaching the top 10 at Rhythmic outlets nationwide. In addition, the song's companion video clip scored major rotation at MTV, MTV Jams, MTV Hits, and VH1 Soul. "Boyfriend #2" also reached the #2 spot on BET's "106 & Park," where Pleasure recently performed live.
The success of "Boyfriend #2" followed Pleasure P's smash debut single, "Did You Wrong," which reached the Top 25 at Rhythmic as well as the Top 15 at Urban Radio. The track's accompanying video -- streaming now at Pleasure P's official website, www.pleasurepmusic.com -- proved a blockbuster introduction, reaching the top 5 on BET's "106 & Park" countdown.
Pleasure P -- who first attracted international attention as a member of Bluestar/Atlantic recording group Pretty Ricky -- heralded the release of "THE INTRODUCTION OF MARCUS COOPER" with a rapturously received live appearance at this weekend's Hot 97 Summer Jam 2009 at New Jersey's Giants Stadium. "The New Bad-Boy of R&B" has also been featured in a wide array of publications and online outlets, including XXL, Sister 2 Sister, Black Men, Vibe, Hip Hop Weekly, DJBooth.net, ConcreteLoop.com, and UrbanStreetz.com.
