"TABLOID TRUTH" TO BE EXCLUSIVELY RELEASED THROUGH WAL-MART
Emerging Superstar Launches Debut Album Fueled by the Success of Viral Dance Craze and Industry Rumblings of "A Multitude of Hit Singles" from Upcoming Album
New York, NY (January 4, 2012)-- Emerging superstar and music sensation, J. Dash, just capped off an incredible year by surpassing 250,000 sales of his debut single "WOP," thanks in part to sales of 10,000 downloads on Christmas day alone. The song, which has been bringing in new fans for months, created an international dance craze while the music video featuring J. Dash's friend and multi-platinum selling rapper Flo Rida, along with other "WOP" videos, have garnered the attention of over 30 million YouTube viewers worldwide. With an impressive viral campaign and the support of radio stations across the country, "WOP" has since become a staple on the Top 100 Billboard Hip Hop Chart for the past 16 weeks. The track serves as the lead offering off of J. Dash's forthcoming album "Tabloid Truth" due out January 31st on StereoFame Records, which will be physically released exclusively in Wal-Mart's across the country, as well as iTunes and other digital outlets.. This was made possible by the unprecedented viral and radio success of "Wop" and distribution agreements worked out through StereoFame Records media consultant TC Thompkins of Thompkins Marketing.
"It's been incredible what we've been able to accomplish this past year," said J. Dash. "I can't thank the fans enough for their support; they have turned "WOP" into what it is today and I'm looking forward to sharing the rest of the album with them later this month!" Ken Underwood CEO of StereoFame Records added, "We're extremely proud to announce this exclusive physical distribution deal with Wal-Mart. Being able to say "Record available ONLY at Wal-Mart" is a significant accomplishment that only happens for a handful of major artists. It's truly a testament to J. Dash's music and the industry rumblings that "Tabloid Truth" is going to become one of the world's top selling albums in 2012 with a multitude of hit singles."
2011 saw J. Dash perform on national TV shows like "The Daily Buzz," have his video debut on MTV Jams and BET's 106 & Park, and "WOP" became the fastest growing dance song in the country charting on the Mediabase and Billboard singles charts. With the "Tabloid Truth" release on January 31st, 2012, fans can look forward to an eclectic mix of up tempo dance tracks, reflective songs and a showcase of the world through the eyes of J. Dash.
Before introducing the "WOP" to the world, J.Dash was a piano prodigy and classically trained pianist who played Mozart for his family and friends at age 5. Throughout his teens, however, he cut his teeth playing in various blues and jazz bands. A rapper, songwriter, producer, mixer & multi-instrumentalist, this Renaissance man also holds a degree in computer science from the University of Florida.
Well on its way to becoming a Gold record (500,000 sales), the "WOP" single and ringtone are available for download on iTunes; and, the new "WOP" (Club Mix) is also available for download on iTunes. The track has recently seen an even larger spike in sales resulting in J. Dash having his first #1 hit on TuneCore. For more information please visit: http://www.therealjdash.com/.
