Norwegian electronic music star Matoma’s innovative ‘Hakuna Matoma’ album project – available via Big Beat Records/Parlophone – continues to go from strength-to-strength as it expands and evolves over time on streaming media platforms. With over 280 million streams to date and more than 7.5 million regular monthly listeners on Spotify, Matoma is proving that his unconventional approach is paying dividends.
The album’s highlights include guest appearances from Washington D.C. rapper Wale and Jamaican dancehall artist Popcaan on the feel-good ‘Feeling Right (Everything Is Nice)’; ‘Try Me,’ a collaboration with global superstars Jason Derulo and Jennifer Lopez; the jubilant ‘Wonderful Life’ as featured on the Angry Birds soundtrack; Matoma’s inspired reimagining of Coldplay’s ‘Adventure of a Lifetime’; the HypeM #1 ‘Knives’; and the gorgeous ‘Running Out’ with MTV Music Europe Award winner Astrid S. The track ‘Paradise’ features Sean Paul and KStewart and was launched during Matoma’s festival-highlight set at Coachella 2016, where Sean Paul was on hand to reprise his performance on the track.
KING SALADEEN has said that his inspirations have always come from a place so deep within, that ART has been his one and only way to express it! Creativity is an amazing outlet to express oneself and it seems like it is what made this self taught artist the man he is today.
Raheem Saladeen Johnson was born and raised in West Philadelphia, where his passion for the arts began even before the age of 5. He would draw on whatever he could get his hands on, particularly any wall that came his way, and especially for his mother. As an inner city child, the arts and activities were few and far between.
He began presenting art work in all of the hip cities. KING SALADEEN graced Hollywood with his first solo show followed by one at Art Basel Miami. Most recently he held a three day show in SOHO NYC, known for its fine art galleries. When he begins his projects he paints based on his inspiration and vibe.
