Major prepares for 2018 Soul Train Awards Nomination & Celebrates Career Wins

Touted as “The Hope Dealer” pop-soul recording artist, MAJOR. (BOE/Empire), has had a phenomenal year of “wins” and “firsts.” Beyond his signature love ballad “Why I Love You” remaining the “Wedding Love Song of the Year,” as Stevie Wonder says – the song continues to soar to new heights.

MAJOR. released his debut album, Even More, this fall, and it received rave reviews by Patti LaBelle & Halle Berry. The 10-track LP has produced two chart-topping singles to date including “Honest,” (#5 on Billboard UAC), and current up-tempo smash “Better with You In It.”

After starting the year off as a two-time NAACP Image Award Nominee, MAJOR. closes out the year with his first Soul Train Awards nomination in the Certified Artist Award category. “I’m literally living the dreams I saw years ago. From artist to watch to nominee?! Now that’s MAJOR!” says MAJOR.

Another 2018 “win”, is the feature of MAJOR.’s song “My Future” in the #1 comedy “Night School” starring Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish. This was quickly followed up with his hit song “Better With You In It” being selected as the official theme song for Black Love on OWN.

MAJOR. has been dubbed as the artist that creates the soundtrack of life. So these placements only further illuminate what we’ve known to be the true of his artistry”, says label head and super producer Harmony Samuels.

For 2019, the singer/actor has much to look forward to – including the second leg of his national tour with a few international spot dates and a massive promotional push for new music.
