It was back in October 2006 that the UK r&b sensation known then simply as Nathan, released his album The Masterpiece which gave him his first UK top 40 hit with the track Come Into My Room.
The London born singer then took time out to fly to America on what was expected to be a brief visit, to meet up and work with some of the biggest names in US hip-hop and r&b.
The trip turned into a two year break for the singer who lived in New York and Atlanta during his stay and he returned in 2010 to re-launch his career and start work on his new album.
The second album 3D – Determination, Dedication, Desire will be released in the spring of 2011 under the new moniker Starboy Nathan and looks set to demonstrate just what the boy has learnt by hanging out with the big boys.
Working with internationally renowned songwriters such as 2011 Grammy Award Winners Angela Hunte and Janet “J’nay” Sewell-Ulepic and super-producers including, Hip Hop luminary Swizz Beatz, the album will be the perfect showcase for Starboy Nathan’s effortless singing voice and songwriting abilities.
Kick-starting his eagerly anticipated return to the UK with all guns blazing, he has been supporting award-winning super-group JLS on their sold-out arena tour which has received huge acclaim.
Starboy Nathan will be hitting the road again in March, when he will support the super boy band The Wanted on a Spring tour of the UK.
He will then release his brand new single Diamonds on April 18th.
Starboy Nathan commented “I wrote ‘Diamonds’ to express the feeling when you want to do anything and everything you can for the person that you’re with. Less about the diamond itself, ‘Diamonds’ is more of a metaphor for the gesture behind it.”
