Having just reached its one-year anniversary, J Records has many reasons to celebrate.
Three platinum albums have already been born – Alicia Keys, Luther Vandross and O-Town – and J artists literally govern the tops of multiple Billboard charts. And adding to this massive success, last night Alicia Keys’ #1 hit “Fallin”‘ won Best New Artist video at the MTV VMA Awards. Hence, it is with great excitement that J Records proudly unveils their long awaited online hub located at www.Jrecords.com. The site, designed by kpe, focuses on presenting the large scope of the J Records roster – now 30 artists deep- while also leading visitors to the individual websites of artists such as Alicia Keys, O-Town, Angie Stone, LFO, Jimmy Cozier, Soil and Olivia. Exclusively, the website offers the first listen of Busta Rhymes’ new song “Break Ya Neck.”
“The launch of JRecords.com reinforces our commitment to a strong internet strategy while serving a true purpose for our artists and our consumers. It is also extremely fulfilling to see J Records expand onto the Internet with such a rich roster of artists to display after only being in business for one year,” comments Tom Corson, Executive VP of Worldwide Marketing and Sales.
“We are proud that we are finally able to bring the success of the J Records into the new media space,” says Matt Shay, Senior Director New Media, J Records. “The site represents the dedication we have made to our artists in the space and our commitment to remain very dynamic and visible on the internet.”
“kpe has had a great relationship with J Records as they firmly establish their innovative brand in the entertainment marketplace, especially with this signature digital property,” said Mark Patricof, president and CEO of kpe. “Our unique industry focus and history of building successful digital entertainment ventures make kpe and J Records the perfect interactive partners.”
Also featured on Jrecords.com are audio streams of Soil’s single “Halo,” the label’s first rock release and Luther Vandross’ new “Can Heaven Wait.” Videos such as O-Town’s just recorded “We Fit Together,” and the award-winning “Fallin”‘ from Alicia Keys are also available as streams.
