It is another proud giant step for dancehall/reggae music. “dancehall/reggae label never got the indy spotlight on iTunes – that’s big!” says an enthusiastic Johnny Wonder, Executive vice president for 21st Hapilos Distribution.
Founded in 2001 Itunes has changed the music industry and quickly became the biggest music store. It is only fit that 21st Hapilos Digital who is the biggest home for reggae and dancehall INDIE labels pioneered the way and revolutionized the way the genre is sold to the world .
They have recognized the hard work of all independent producers and labels and offer support and tools for Reggae and dancehall to become platinum. The company’s main goal has been to give artists, producers and labels exposure and revenue.
Some of the producers and works featured on Itunes INDIE spotlight are 6 riddims by ZJ Chrome including his latest #TN S riddim , So Unique’s Lost Angels riddim, Damoen Gayles Duplicity riddim, Konshens Gal A Bubble, TJ’s records throwback riddims Show Off & Bill Back, Consi’s from Head Concussions Area 51 riddim, Buju & Beenie EP, the new Street Shots vol. 1 compilation & many more.
This as Dancehall artist Popcaan debuts at #89 on the R&B/HipHop billboard charts with the hit single Only Man She Want! No doubt that this was attributed to the fact that the song was added last month to the playlist of New York’s Hot 97FM and other major radio stations across the US.
Just last month, Johnny Wonder, executive vice-president of 21st Hapilos Digital, was quoted thanking the New York station “First of all I have to thank Bobby Konders and Mister Cee of HOT 97 for their support; they are always behind us 100 percent and we are thankful. I am also happy with Popcaan’s growing success, both locally and in the international market. “
