After a short stint with Irv Gotti’s The Inc., R&B singer Boxie signed a record deal with Polo Grounds Music and J Records. First heard by many on Playa’s Rock with Hurricane Chris, the 19-year old is trying to become “the face of street R&B” with his new single, Turn It Up. Looking to pick up a potential chick, Boxie boasts about everything you’d expect… from a rapper. While R&B purists will cringe at the thought, Boxie displays powerful vocals and gives more effort than most self-proclaimed “street singers.” With a heavy violin-brass beat, Turn It Up might live up to its name on the radio and in the clubs, continuing Polo Grounds‘s current hit streak.
