Five years after signing with konvict Records/Interscop under Akon, along eight mix taps and a string of hits written and released for the albums of other hot artists like, songwriter/performer duo R. City aka Rock City are ready share their own stuff.
While the guys have been busy making hits for stars like Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, Jennifer Hudson, R. Kelly and Akon, a R. City aka Rock City album was not forthcoming, causing them to launch a very public campaign they gallantly called PTFAO (Put The F**cking Album Out) to make the industry aware of their plight.
Finally, in March 2011, after two years of campaigning, Akon met with the duo and offered them the option of remaining with the label and working towards dropping an album or being released from their contract.
Grateful as they were to Akon for the opportunities offered to them, the guys snatched the chance of finally gaining their freedom and are now officially free agents, able to PTFAO.
R. City aka Rock City's debut album, Free At Last, is set to drop later this summer on their own label, Rebelution Records.
Immediately upon leaving that meeting with Akon, R. City aka Rock City's manager, Ray Daniels, called long-time friend Wendy Day, who has made a name for herself assisting artists with the release of their own projects. Within five hours, the team was strategizing the drop of the album.
"We On," the first single from Free At Last, was serviced to mix show last week and is already at over 30 spins a week. With its unmistakable bounce, expect the song to make its way to every club DJ's playlist nationwided within weeks.
These guys have all the ingredients for stardom. They are already proven songwriters. Their live show is second to none. All they wanted was a chance. Now that they are 'free at last,' the sky is the limit and there's not a dark cloud in sight!
