Bad Boy Records’ latest to drop is Loon with his self titled debut album, ‘Loon’. He is taking the Bad Boy legacy into the future and his debut effort to the top of the charts. Loon enters Billboard’s Top 200 chart at #6, and also #6 on Soundscan’s Top Current Albums chart. And took the #2 position in the country on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-hop Chart.
Loon has made a number of high-profile guest appearances on other artist’s songs including turns with 3LW on ‘I Do (Wanna Get Close to You)’ and Toni Braxton on ‘Hit the Freeway’ as he prepped for his self-titled and delayed debut, which finally dropped October 21st.
Loon says that it was “an honor” to do records with different artists, and it was also a means of survival. “Those transitions hindered the process of music being put out at Bad Boy, so I had to keep my face in the crowd,” Loon explained to Billboard.com. “I was selective about the records I did… I put myself in a position where I see opportunities present themselves, and I chose the right opportunities.”
Bad Boy Records’ latest to soon drop will be Loon. Loon’s self-titled debut LP is scheduled to drop October 21st. Loon has been paying his dues for years in the music industry. In addition to launching his own career, he has penned hit songs for a host of artists from New Edition’s BBD to Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs. He’s added his smooth touch to songs for gold and platinum recording artists’ work by making appearances on songs for acts such as Tony Braxton, 3LW, and DJ Kay Slay.
