California group One Block Radius will never allow themselves to be pigeonholed into one particular musical category; they have been known to mix hip-hop and R&B with pop and classic rock. The trio, made up of Marty James, MDA, and Z-Man, recently signed a major deal and will release their new album under legendary label Mercury Records via Island Def Jam. Appealing to today’s mostly female-dominated mainstream audience, the group’s debut single, You Got Me, reassures women that their men will do whatever it takes to keep them. Should You Got Me reach ‘hit status’, James should get the lion’s share of the credit with his sung hook and radio-ready production. Look out for their currently-untitled debut album, which should attract all types of music lovers when it hits stores and online retailers September 2.
Note: The streaming of “You Got Me” has temporarily been suspended.
