Ricky Persaud – M.Y.O.B.

Global artist Ricky Persaud Jr. releases timely new album ‘M.Y.O.B.’ 

IRVINGTON, NJ – When listening to multitalented artist Ricky Persaud Jr., fans are treated to an unbelievable range of sound and passion that is both simple and sophisticated. Just when you think you’ve got him figured out, another track changes your perception. Weaving from Rock to Reggae to Pop to Funk and everything in between, this East Coast artist is one of the hottest acts to fly under the radar over the past decade. But with the release of his forthcoming sixth album “M.Y.O.B.,” he’s set to launch onto the global stage in major ways. 

Calling the new album his most personal work to date, Ricky said “M.Y.O.B.” is a coming-of-age tale that will inspire listeners to look deep within and find the strength to stand up to anyone who might be discouraging. It features alternative Pop elements with sounds of Rock, Latin and otherworld sounds sprinkled in.  

“It’s a sound I’ve worked on my whole life and really melded into my own signature style,” he said. “I grew up in a very musical family – my father was an engineer for Reggae acts back in the day and my mother played keyboards when she was younger. They’d play all kinds of different records in the house growing up including many from the Caribbean, where they’re from, and all of that influence opened my mind to what music is. I don’t hear a lot of people today melding genres the way I do so seamlessly. I’ve been exposed to so many aspects of culture over the years that it has all found its way into my music.” 

Ricky said “M.Y.O.B.” is an uplifting and positive album despite that the acronym stands for “Mind Your Own Business.” The debut single of the same name talks about knowing oneself and standing up for your rights and not letting others bring you down just because you’re doing good in life. 

“There’s so much darkness in this world which is why I’m always talking about something positive,” Ricky said. “There are songs on this album about racial equality and standing up for your rights and the fight against injustices. One song, ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ is about overcoming being bullied and is very important for today in the face of this systemic racism going on right now. More than anything, I just want people to hear my messages and spread the love around the world.” 

Another single is equally encouraging along those same lines. Titled “We’re Gonna Get Through This,” the song talks about the current global situation with the COVID-19 pandemic and America’s response to the George Floyd situation and overall racial injustices prevalent throughout the country. It’s yet another track on the album that lets listeners in on his transparent and deeply honest response to the world around him. 

“I know who I am and I am secure in what I want to accomplish,” he said. “I don’t want anyone’s opinion of me to get in the way of my musical journey. That’s what this album is about – championing one’s own uniqueness and power and sharing an infectious enthusiasm.”

(Video) Pudge Capone – Keep Fighting @PudgeCapone

Pudge Capone’s musical journey is certainly a lesson in perseverance and resiliency. At one point, the Lebanon, Pennsylvania native was sitting behind bars, contemplating whether he was wasting his talent. That moment of clarity led to him honing his craft and focusing all of his energy on launching his career upon release. For nearly 4 years since he has been a full-time artist, Pudge Capone has collaborated with the likes of Fatboy SSE and amassed well over 100K streams on Apple Music alone. This is all the more remarkable considering his limited number of musical releases. Often splitting his time between Pennsylvania and New York City, Washington Heights specifically, Pudge has built a strong network of creatives to collaborate with from both states that help bring his art to life.

Now ready to take the leap and take his career to greater heights, Pudge Capone has unveiled his first official project in the form of the 4-track EP, “Blood, Sweat & Tears.” The project finds Pudge sharing his journey with raw emotion that resonates with listeners. He also released the first official visual from the project with the TH Media-directed clip for Keep Fighting. Pudge expounds on not getting the recognition he deserves on the song and persevering nonetheless. Watch the video here, follow him on Instagram at @PudgeCapone and be sure to stream the EP Blood, Sweat & Tears currently available on all digital streaming platforms.
