Power Moves Kranium Signs Multiple Album Deal With Atlantic Records

With the release of his sly, sultry single "Nobody Has to Know" upcoming Queens New York based sing-jay Kranium moved from anonymity onto international dancehall reggae play lists, the US charts and now, a major label.
"Nobody Has To Know" sold 29,000 copies in 2014, peaking at no. 32 on the Reggae Digital Songs chart, also reaching the Next Big Sound and Twitter Emerging Artists charts while its video has generated upwards of 10 million YouTube views. His second single "Lifestyle" has sold more than 8,000 copies. Kranium ended his successful year by signing a multiple album, global 360-deal (excluding the Caribbean) with Atlantic Records on Dec. 22.

I am always thrilled when I can identify another artist that will be a great addition to our roster. Kranium is a very talented writer, is stylistically fresh, has a unique vocal tone and I am really excited to be back in the reggae business, working with a brand new, young artist," Atlantic president/CEO Craig Kallman told Billboard. Kallman has signed several reggae and dancehall acts to the label including silky crooner Wayne Wonder, deejay (i.e. Jamaican rapper) Elephant Man and Grammy Award winner Sean Paul who released two RIAA certified platinum albums ("Dutty Rock" and "The Trinity") and topped the Hot 100 three times with "Get Busy", "Baby Boy" (with Beyonce) and "Temperature" throughout his 12 years with Atlantic.
