Wine O Signs Deal With Universal Records
Posted on July 28, 2006 by Jamie Slaughter
Houston rapper Wine-O has inked a deal with Universal Records to distribute his late-September release Hate Me. Wine-Os first single, 'Pop My Trunk' has exploded and is in heavy rotation an all major radio stations in Texas, and is also the number one club song in Texas. The single has been spreading to other cities in the South, and has been in the Billboard Top 100 R&B/Hip Hop singles for the past 12 weeks.
Wine-O is by no means new to the music business. He’s had an extensive career as both an artist and a producer, and has worked in several different genres of music including hip hop, rock, blues and country formats. He recently worked with Mike Jones, producing tracks for him, and is currently collaborating with Slim Thug and Scarface. Wine-O also produced the remix for Letoya Luckett’s single, “Tear Da Club Up.”
Wine-O promises to be a force to be reckoned with in the music world as he delivers a style and sound that are as unique and compelling as his story. Hate Me features 18 tracks, and the first single, “Pop My Trunk,” illustrates Wine-O’s keen ear for catchy beats and his distinctive, infectious voice. Wine-O’s inspiration and music come from his life experiences - the trials, hard times, death and disappointments he has gone through, as well as from the successes he has achieved in life. His music touches on many different aspects of the human experience and has an inimitable sound that comes straight from his heart. Wine-O previously released over a dozen albums under the name Nu Wine.
