Song:On The Ocean
Album:I Get Around
R & B singer songwriter Kelvin "K'Jon" Johnson had chart success with his 2009 single On The Ocean and CD I Get Around. Then he had record company problems and he's back to being an independent artist. K'Jon is from Detroit. His 2001 single My Shorty got local airplay. But it was enough for his song Miami to appear on the soundtrack of the 2003 film 2 Fast 2 Furious. He wrote and produced for others including Shareefa whose 2006 CD Point Of No Return was on Ludicris' label Disturbing Tha Peace. K'Jon released the 2007 CD The Ballroom Xplosion independently. It got him a deal with Universal Republic. The CD I Get Around was released in 2009. The single On The Ocean reached #12 on the R & B Singles chart. I Get Around topped the R & B Album chart and reached #9 on the Billboard Hot 200. So K'Jon was off to a good start. He recorded a second album Oxygen but Universal Republic didn't like it. And when the 2011 single Good Morning didn't catch on, they shelved the album and K'Jon was dropped. Since then, K'Jon released the 2012 CD Moving On through Shanachie and then the 2013 CD Man through CD Baby on his own label. So K'Jon is back where he started before his major label deal. He's a talented guy but it could be his future is more as a writer and producer than as a singer. Here's the video for On The Ocean by K'Jon.
