My whole goal is for everyone to understand that we are trying to bring good music with a futuristic feel. I listen to a lot of different kinds of music. I want to bring love for the old style that I grew up on, and the new feel that I'm so into now. Right now I'm excited about the album, and anxious to see what people think about it.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 15, 2008
In the past few years, the South has had a stronghold on various forms of popular music. Atlanta artists have dominated music charts, particularly in the realm of the Hip Hop/R&B/Pop fusion genre now known as Urban Pop. While Myko is no newcomer to music in the ATL scene, he is currently offering up a fresh perspective on Urban Pop as he prepares the January 2009 release of his debut album, Options, in correlation with New York-based Outta Pocket Entertainment.
Spearheaded by New York Jets' Running Back Thomas Jones, the Outta Pocket Entertainment team has their sights set on developing Myko into the next true pop superstar. With the Static Major-produced single "Late Nite Creep" gaining momentum on radio and a video ready to hit the airwaves, Myko is preparing to present his music to the world.
Sadly, Static Major passed away in February 2008, however Myko cherishes the opportunity to be a part of his continuing legacy. "I look at it as an honor to have Static's work on my album," expresses Myko. "I was a big fan of Static coming from when he had 'Cheers 2 U' with Playa. I got a chance to meet his family and speak to people whose lives he affected. I try to pay homage to the song and situation every time I get a chance to perform it."
In addition to the musical prowess of Static Major, Myko's debut album Options also has production from Grammy Award-winner Khao, Virginia-based Bink, Atlanta's B-Rock and newcomer Toxic. Renowned songwriter Jason Desrouleaux has been working closely with Myko to optimize the amazing talent on this project, and Miami icon Rick Ross steps in for a feature on the song "Spend This Bread."
"With this album, I want people to know that a lot of hard work has been put in to get here, and I believe they'll feel it through the passion in the sound," explains Myko. "My whole goal is for everyone to understand that we are trying to bring good music with a futuristic feel. I listen to a lot of different kinds of music. I want to bring love for the old style that I grew up on, and the new feel that I'm so into now. Right now I'm excited about the album, and anxious to see what people think about it."
