You may be familiar with the name Kevin Lyttle from his 2003 breakthrough single, “Turn Me On.”
The song is certified gold, and sold millions of records before streaming even existed. The record became a worldwide hit and peaked within top 10 in fifteen countries. It earned him a deal with Atlantic Records but that didn’t work out. “These major labels get caught up in what the media and their friends are saying, and they weren’t looking at how my music was built. My music was built from the grassroots. And I already had another song with Spragga Benz that was going. It was No. 1 in Jamaica already, we had a video shot and it was ready to go. We sent the video over and they kept saying they didn’t get it.”
But that didn’t stop his continuing reign. Lyttle’s smash hit was sampled by Chris Brown which he owns publishing for. “I own the publishing on Questions. I also own the publishing for the Cheat Codes’ version, “Let Me Hold You”, which is bigger than the Chris Brown version.”
Kevin Lyttle also discussed his new song, “Close To You” which is the first of many singles on the way.
“It was produced by a producer from St. Vincent and the Grenadines who resides in Trinidad. His name is Static. The song is actually Kevin Lyttle featuring Static. He had it there waiting for me and I didn’t change anything to it. All I did was write the second verse. It was a really beautiful song. I sent it to my management and they said ‘yeah let’s go’”
