These are two of biggest new faces in music. You might not know them, but you definitely know their songs!
Grammy Nominated producers Pop & Oak of GOOOOOOO!!! Music Productions will find themselves at the top of the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart and The R&B Albums Charts when Nicky Minaj’s Pink Friday: Roman Re-Loaded debuts at #1 this week. This will mark Pop & Oak’s second set of #1 debuts with Minaj as they produced many tracks on her #1 Pink Friday disc including her breakthrough single, “Your Love.”
The single reached #1 on The Billboard Rap Singles Chart and #4 on The R&B and Hip Hop Songs Chart and #14 on The Hot 100. On the new disc they also have a hit single, “Right By My Side” which is burning up radio airwaves world wide. The new Minaj album is just one flame in the Philly based producing duos hot streak.
Just last month Unexpected Arrival, the disc they worked on with Diggy Simmons crashed onto The Billboard R&B Album Chart at #3 on while reaching #13 on the Top 200 Album Chart. This was following the success of the single “Copy, Paste” they produced for him. Next week is equally exciting for the duo as Monica’s new album, New Life will be out and feature the single, “Catch Me.” They will also be in theaters with a song they produced called “What Did I Miss” which will be featured in the feature film, Think Like A Man. That song is actually sung by Pop himself.
Pop & Oak have a plethora of hit music coming for the rest of the year and beyond. In August, they will have several songs featured in the film, Sparkle while they will also have a new album they produced by newcomer Elle Varner which includes her current Pop & Oak produced hit “Refill” and a new album by R&B heart throb Sterling Simms. In addition to these projects Pop & Oak will be involved with several high profile, music projects with established super stars and also be announcing very exciting new music venture.
The dynamic producing and song writing duo of Pop & Oak are the most sought after producing duo working today. In a few short years they have amassed a catalog of hits featuring such superstars as Nicky Minaj, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Kelly Rowland, Fantasia, Busta Rhymes, Ashley Tisdale, Big Sean and Diggy Simmons to name a few. Their music is also featured in new films including, Think Like A Man and the forthcoming film, Sparkle.
