GV’s ‘From The Ground Up’ Breaks Records
Having successfully released his debut album ‘From the Ground Up’ on December 22nd, UK Born writer, composer & producer GV became the first ever Bhangra artist to achieve simultaneous chart topping success.
The debut 8 track album ‘From The Ground Up’ stormed to No.1 spot on the iTunes Album Chart within an incredible two hours of release. Alongside the Number 1 placed album, the lead single from the album ‘Putt Jatt Da’ featuring the vocals of Jaz Dhami reached the pinnacle of the iTunes singles chart, giving GV an unprecedented first.
Talking about his recent record breaking feat, producer GV stated;
“The amazing response to my debut album was completely unexpected. I never set out to make a number 1 album, or a number 1 single. I just wanted to make a good bhangra album that the masses could enjoy.
I spent countless hours making the beats, writing, composing, recording the vocalists, and so on. I'm really happy that bhangra lovers around the world are embracing my sound. I'd like to thank everybody who has made this possible. I'm looking forward to sharing more new music with everyone soon...“
The album, which features a fine blend of both interntational and UK based talent including Jaz Dhami, Master Saleem & Nirmal Sidhu is also now available in stores. Having released under Moviebox, the albums success was duly noted by Kamraan Ahmed, the head of Moviebox commented;
“It has been a great pleasure working with GV on the release of his wonderful debut album which is finally out. I truly feel that GV is here to stay and this is just the beginning. If his passion and work ethics continue as he has shown me over the last several months or so, then we can surely look forward to some great sounding music in the coming months and years” (Kamraan MOVIEBOX)
