Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG New York, NY – Jive Records along with Miami based Final Cut Music Group and legendary label Slip N Slide (home of artists Trick Daddy, Trina, Plies and Rick Ross among others) announces the signing of singer/songwriter Qwote. His first single "Don't Wanna Fight" is gaining strong radio support in his home state of Florida and the single is impacting pop radio nationwide on March 31st. "Don't Wanna Fight" will be released with two versions; one featuring hip-hop star Trina, and a reggae-tinged version featuring pop-reggae sensation Shaggy

Born in Haiti and raised in NY and Miami, Qwote showed his love for music since an early age. Drawing inspiration from artists like Sam Cooke, The Beatles, Michael Jackson and Lenny Kravitz, Qwote decided to commit to music and work hard towards his future goals and success. His first break came when he got a chance to work with Slip N Slide’s artist Trina and producer Steve Obas, owner of Final Cut Music Group. His writing skills and charming vocals quickly led him to a record deal with Slip N Slide. To this date, Qwote has collaborated with Trina, Wayne Wonder and Shaggy among others.

While his debut album is still in the works, Qwote is looking forward to collaborating with a stellar roster of producers on his upcoming project. “The album will be about me and my vocals and my skills as a song writer” says Qwote. “I hope the album will please my fans’ minds, bodies and souls.”

"Qwote is the kind of pop artist that is going to expand Slip N Slide Records' roster and show the growth of the label.” states Slip N Slide’s CEO Ted Lucas. “He will also demonstrate the next level that Slip N Slide Records is going to. This year we are going to have exciting international songs and artists cross barriers that we have never touched before."
