April 2, 2012 - PRLog -- Independent recording artist, J.Poww, ventures into uncharted territory with his latest project—a remake of the 90s R&B classic—“Let's Chill.” Guy—the male trio who’s members comprised of Aaron Hall, Teddy Riley and Damion Hall (who replaced original member Timmy Gatling)—originally released “Let's Chill” in 1990 on their sophomore album, The Future, under Geffen Records. The song made it to #3 on the Billboard R&B charts. Those who have heard J.Poww's version say that he has “created a new feel to an old classic.”

Not only is this the first remake of “Let's Chill,” but the first song that J.Poww has ever professionally re-recorded. As a known songwriter, he generally writes all his music including the #1 hit “Something’s Goin On” while a member of 90s R&B group, U.N.V. (Universal Nubian Voices). So why now and why this song?  "I picked ‘Let's Chill’ because it is a timeless classic. With this song, I could turn young people onto classic R&B and also give the fans of 90s R&B music something they can truly appreciate," says J.Poww. The song was produced by Ronnie Brasco of HitWorld Music Group and mixed and mastered by IV Duncan of the MixFactory. "When J.Poww came to me with the idea of remaking the song I knew it was going to be something special because he and I both share such a passion for 90s music," recalls Brasco.

After only two days on SoundClick.com, J.Poww's remake of "Let's Chill" climbed its way to #3 on the Urban Charts. SoundClick is a leading online music community with 3.4 million members and over 70 million monthly page views. J.Poww's "I'm Not in Love”, which was also produced by Brasco, topped the Soundclick charts at #2 in 2010.

The remake of “Let's Chill” will appear on J.Poww’s new solo album Soul and Swag slated to be released later this year under his independent record label, Powwer Moves Records. The album will include a mix of R&B and Hip-Hop as the artist stays true to his ability to dominant multiple genres and his equal love of both.
