Frank Anthony “I Don’t Deserve You” (Produced by The Underdogs)
It’s not every day that an independent up and coming Pop artist gets chart-topping songwriters and producers like Scott Storch (Justin Timberlake, Fat Joe, Beyoncé), Jason “Pooh Bear” Boyd (Kelly Rowland, 112), The Underdogs (Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown) ,Steven Russell (Jordin Sparks, Chris Brown), the Audibles (Lupe Fiasco), rappers Tyga, Kendrick Lamar, and Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys to collaborate with them on their debut album. But few come with the panache, raw musical talent, and a commitment of resources from label-management that belies Frank Anthony’s status as a new artist.
The album’s first single, “Rubbing Off on You,” featuring Cash Money/Young Money/Def Jam recording star Tyga, has generated more than two-million downloads, and has been featured on a string of mixtapes. The single is buzzing at radio and on the streets with its strong hook, melodic verses and driving instrumentation; elevated even more by Anthony’s signature smooth vocals, and Tyga’s defiant delivery.
