As an in-demand producer, BORGEOUS has collaborated with many massive names in music including Wiz Khalifa, Waka Flocka, DVBBS, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Tinie Tempah, and Lights (their “Zero Gravity” garnered the platinum-selling artist his second JUNO nomination this year). Today, BORGEOUS is pleased to announce he has teamed with Armada Music to launch his own label Geousus Records (pronounced jus-us) to release his debut artist album 13 later this summer. The first single from the album–“Ride It” featuring Jamaican superstar Sean Paul–ill be released on Friday, May 13.
Listen to “Ride It” which made its premiere yesterday on Billboard.com, now here.
In addition to Sean Paul, 13 will be stacked full of guests and collaborators including Lil Jon, Neon Hitch, Fatman Scoop, Rvssian, MRI, Lauren Dyson, Ashley Wallbridge, 7 Skies and others. Says BORGEOUS on the launch of Geousus Records, “Something that people don’t know about me is that I am half Jamaican on my mother’s side. So for ‘Ride It,’ it was really cool to work on a song with Sean Paul who is one of the top Jamaican artists. It’s the first track from ’13’ people are getting to hear.”
Adds Maykel Piron, Managing Director/Co-Owner of Armada Music, “Throughout the years, we’ve come to admire Borgeous for the freshness and sheer quality of his music. We are grateful for the opportunity of being so closely involved with Geousus Records and Borgeous’ debut album ’13’, and we think both projects have all the makings of becoming some of the most stand-out entities in today’s Electronic Music landscape.”
