The group, composed of rapper, singer and songwriter Tommie King, music producer singer Ryan Klos, and Daiana, only started in January and already have hit singles including “Back To TheCrib,” November,” and “Low”.
8ONE’s first two releases, “Low” and “Back to the Crib” are available on Spotify as well as other streaming platforms. Both songs have also been featured on local radio with “Back To The Crib” landing a #1 debut on the Top 8 at 8 for Wave 89.1 as well as “Low” being played on 89.9 and 99.5 as well as 105.9. “Low” ft. DJ Luane got over 150,000 Spotify streams within a month.
“8ONE songs are all about good vibes and bringing happiness and joy as you listen,” says Tommie King, who does the most writing in the group with everyone collaborating.
8ONE is mixing genres and making their songs suitable for every age group. Because the members are of different nationalities, they hope to unite the listeners as one and end discrimination of what’s cool and what isn’t.
“We look forward to continuing our impressive start,” ends Daiana, an international artist .
