NEW YORK-BASED DANCEHALL ARTIST KRANIUM, SIGNS DEAL WITH ATLANTIC RECORDS!

Kranium—

SINGER Kranium has reportedly signed with Atlantic Records. The entertainer, best known for the hit single Nobody Has to Know, announced the ‘signing’ on his Twitter page this week.

Efforts to get a comment from Kranium were unsuccessful.

Born Kemar Donaldson in St James, Kranium moved to Florida in 2005. One year later, he relocated to New York where he opened shows for Gyptian, Serani, I-Octane and Tarrus Riley.

Nobody Has to Know is the 24-year-old’s breakout hit. Produced by LMR Productions, the song got strong rotation on the influential Hot 97 FM in New York and also did well in Jamaica.

Kranium’s follow-up single, Lifestyle, is also making moves on ITunes reggae charts.

Atlantic Records has a long association with reggae and dancehall acts. The best known is Sean Paul who had two platinum albums for the label before being dropped last summer.

Atlantic was once home to Garnet Silk, Dawn Penn, Wayne Wonder, Lt. Stitchie and Elephant Man.
