2point0tnt continues #WholeLotta2 selling his own music!!!

In October artist 2point0tnt began a campaign to invade streaming algorithms by dropping a song weekly. In November, he upped the ante by continuing to drop weekly but also creating a digital store to sell his music independently! Realizing that today's music platforms are overly saturated with new music, he decided to create an alternative where his fans and supporters can get his content directly. Support the campaign by visiting the site and purchasing a song or a few! Thank you in advance & stay tuned!

Chavyn Jaice Releases R&B Infused Track Midnight Talks

Midnight Talks is a song rooted in the conversations you have that seem to just improve your relationships with others. Mixed with a few nods to my hometown North Royalton. I talk about the desire to talk through a few problems to gain either clarity or conclusions. Life is moving fast but that’s what happens when you have a lot of stored-up potential. Will that person have the courage in return to come and have the conversation that needs to be had before its too late
