Los Angeles has given birth to countless stars in the music industry, but every once in a while, an artist comes along who stands out from the rest. Enter Chad Watson, the LA-based hip-hop artist who's been making waves on the national scene and is poised for global acclaim.
Watson's meteoric rise can't be missed. His song "Caught" not only charted but positioned itself firmly at number 15 on the iTunes R&B list. His debut album wasn't just any album; it earned the coveted spot of being featured in Billboard Magazine.
It’s not just about music for Watson. He has demonstrated his versatility by making appearances all over the nation, opening for big names like Yo Gotti, and being featured on "Black Hollywood Live" on Afterbuzz TV. His visibility has skyrocketed, with placements in major magazines and impressively produced music videos on YouTube that have garnered thousands of views. On streaming platforms, Watson isn't just another artist; with over 100,000 plays on Apple Music, he's an emerging powerhouse.
Radio isn't untouched by Watson's charm either. Both KCAA Radio (102.3fm) and DASH RADIO have hosted him for on-air interviews. He further cemented his credibility and prowess by bagging the 2019 "Backwoods Cigars" award for the artist showcase for Los Angeles.
Beyond music, Watson has an enviable modeling portfolio, having worked with international lifestyle brands such as "Oliventa" and "Underrated". He has even walked the runway for Los Angeles Fashion Week.
But Watson isn't just about the glamour and the music. He's a philanthropist at heart. By collaborating with the Think Wattz Foundation, the Watts Community Core, Havasole, and the Humanity Heroes Project, he's managed to distribute essentials to those who need it the most.
Watson’s achievements haven't gone unnoticed; he's received personal U.S Congressional acknowledgment from Adam Schiff and a California State Senate acknowledgment from Rep Steven Bradford.
And now, after a brief hiatus, Watson is about to drop another gem. His upcoming track, titled "I'm a problem", is a self-reflecting, up-tempo number that highlights his incredible lyrical prowess and unique cadence play. In Watson's words, "It's a fun song, sure to get the heads bopping". Without any features, this track is pure, unadulterated Chad Watson. Produced by Brigi, "I'm a problem" is all set to release in late August, ensuring that summer ends with a sonic bang.
In Watson's candid words, "I've been at home every day for a few weeks, so I've been able to find the right kind of song I've been looking for, for this time of year." With bars like "Niggas confessin on bros I don't make music for hoes I solve em, only the best make the pros, That's just How that shyt goes," this track promises to be a warm and powerful comeback.
For Chad Watson, music is more than just an art. It's an expression, an emotion, and most importantly, a reflection of his journey. And as he gears up to release "I'm a problem", the world should prepare to be enthralled once more by this prodigious talent.
