Fans around the world are attracted to the wisdom of young artist Akeem Magnetic and his pumped up new single ‘Whoa’
COLLEGE PARK, GA – Akeem Magnetic is an artist who is authentic, unapologetic and about to get you pumped up. His latest single will make you say “Whoa!” … literally. It’s an upbeat, summer-ready jam that is sure to have people on their feet and bouncing, while also serving as an anthem, of sorts, for the masses.
“It’s a song to get people pumped up,” Akeem said. “It’s basically an expression that you would say when you’ve come through something hard and you’ve triumphed. It’s like, ‘Whoa Kemosabe! I did it!’ For me it starts with overcoming my trials and making major changes after I did two years in prison and now seeing everything I ever thought could come to me, and I’m just like ‘Whoa!’”
Born in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, but raised on the South Side of Atlanta in the neighborhood known as College Park, Akeem developed a passion for music at a very young age. He was inspired by his father, who was a producer, and his uncle, who was a rapper. He recalls many times as a young child when he’d be with the both of them in the studio, or watching his dad stay up late at night making beats. He embraced that musical influence and showcased a natural affinity for freestyling. But in his early teenage years he ran into trouble with the law. He spent the last year-and-a-half of his sentence in a halfway house, which is where music really became his main outlet of expression and his saving grace.
“When I was in the halfway house I created a single called ‘Crime College,’” Akeem said. “It did really well and got a lot of attention, and that kind of served as a transition for me that made me want to music full-time. Once I got out and had the support of my family – which is just beautiful – I’ve been working hard to make this music successful.”
In October 2020, Akeem released his first single, “Humble Beginnings.” With more than 100,000 monthly listeners on Spotify and more than 15,000 social media followers, Akeem’s progress in the music industry continues to skyrocket. And now, with the release of his latest single “Whoa,” he plans to become a dominant force in the industry. With such a rapid rise and relentless stream of critical and real-world problems, it’s clear that Akeem has clear knowledge and plans for success.
“My music comes from my experiences alone and it’s distinguished from any other artist out there,” he said. “My name Akeem means wise, and I’ve paired that with something that’s attractive, like a magnet. What I speak and say attracts people. I’m a magnetic character, and my music is all about being attracted to that wisdom through good vibes. My truth and authenticity comes through in creative ways, and I’m excited for more people to hear it.”
