With a sound as infectious as his spirited ambition, Jonn Hart is turning heads—and ears. The young Bay Area singer/songwriter, is currently forging his own lane on the modern R&B highway with debut single “Who Booty” featuring French Montana. Buoyed by a smooth, bumping groove underscored by Hart’s seductive, pillow-talk vocals, it’s easy to hear why Epic Records Chairman & CEO L.A. Reid quickly signed the newcomer. And why Hart is one of the bright lights in the West Coast’s growing era of new melodic music. Hart pegs his hybrid, new wave sound as “R&Bay Slap.” Describing himself as neither “a R&B singer nor a rapper,” Hart explains, “But I’m taking a hard-hitting 808 beat, putting a melody on top and then singing melodically on top of that. Yet a rapper can still rap to one of my beats.
