Artist of the Week: Kevin Rudolf

Getting a 'real vision' on what he can contribute as a musician, Kevin Rudolf decided to record his own album which is called 'In the City'.

AceShowbiz - %cKevin Rudolf% got his start in the music industry after meeting top-notched producer %cTimbaland% in 2004. He then helped working on numerous Timbaland-produced hits, including %cNelly Furtado%'s "Say It Right", Timbaland's "Release", and %cBlack Eyed Peas%' "My Style".

In early 2007, Rudolf decided to release his own project after getting a "real vision of what I could contribute as a producer, musician, and songwriter and tapping into my own voice." While working on his debut album, Rudolf met Cash Money Records' Slim Williams and after playing some of his songs for him, he was signed by the executive.

Called "In the City", Rudolf's upcoming debut album is produced entirely by himself except for an unnamed track worked on by %cThe Neptunes%' Chad Hugo. One of the tracks on the album is %cLil Wayne%-featuring jam titled "Let It Rock". Since released in July, the tune has climbed to number 5 on Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart and has reached number 14 on Billboard Pop 100 Singles chart.

In support of his debut album, Rudolf plans to hit the road before the end of 2008. "I've been hearing some crazy stuff, like 'Let It Rock' is %cRyan Seacrest% and %cLindsay Lohan%'s favorite song right now. I have been very blessed and feel really lucky," the Cash Money's singer explains. "There is no info or pictures of me anywhere, yet the track has taken a life of its own. The music is truly speaking for itself."
