Multi-Platinum selling UK artist OWS releases the video for Waterline and announces his first US Performance at SXSW this March followed by a UK headline show.
Since the recent release of his debut single Waterline featuring Pusha T. OWS is already well known in the US as one to watch. Waterline was first leaked into the U.S on Jay Z’s blog Life + Times in September last year and stated: “The combination of the alluring rasp of the UK crooner’s vocals and Pusha’s signature flow, “Waterline” proves to be a smart move artistically for this debut OWS single”.
With no marketing and very little social media the mysterious OWS gained interest from some of the biggest names in the music industry including Jay Z, Pusha T and Kanye West. G.O.O.D Music rapper, Pusha T said: “When I first met OWS we connected, he is an incredibly talented artist, it was a no brainer to join him on his album! He is about to blow up in the US and I’m thrilled to have been there from the beginning.” PUSHA T
Already successful, OWS (Oritsé Williams) was the brains behind successful UK pop band, JLS. Having sold 10 million albums and with 5 number 1 singles under his belt, OWS is now ready to take his music in a global direction.
“To have a rapper with a number one US hip hop album feature on my first single Waterline was a blessing, to also have King Push in the music video is truly unbelievable. Working with Pusha T along with the backing of Kanye and G.O.O.D Music is incredible and demonstrates their belief in me as an artist.” OWS
