Julia Robertson and Norm Adams pair up for hit single, Body Rush. Now released by Musik Radio Promotions, the single has proved a hit, being picked up by the BBC networks and thousands of stations around the world.
Julia Robertson achieved fame in the 90’s, as part of the female R&B group Ex-Girlfriend. The New York based quartet was comprised of Julia, Tisha Hunter, Monica Boyd and Stacy Francis . Signed to Warner/Reprise Records, Ex- Girlfriend’s debut album, “X Marks the Spot”, yielded the hit singles “Why Can’t You Come Home?” (Billboard #5 U.S. R&B), and “You (You’re The One For Me)”.
Norm Adams is a singer-songwriter, whose creative style has often drawn comparisons to Babyface, Ne-Yo and Bruno Mars. His debut solo album, “This Is My Time”, was produced by Grammy nominated producers Ric Zivic and Ted Wender, and included the Top 10 indie record, “Love Me” (MWR UK #7), and the dance floor filler “Stretch Ya Neck”, whose video was designated by Yahoo as a “must see” .
Destiny came calling when a mutual friend suggested on social media that Julia and Norm do a song together, calling them his “two favorite singers”. Julia responded that she thought it was a great idea, and that she’d love to do it! Norm had written “Body Rush” some time ago, but never quite knew what to do with it because as he elaborated, “I didn’t feel that it was right for me as a solo artist, (or any solo artist for that matter). When presented with the idea of a duet however, I knew it would be perfect! I sent Julia a demo of the song, and she absolutely loved it! A couple of weeks later, she came out to my house in Philadelphia, and we began working on it. The first time our voices blended on the song, we both knew that it was going to be something special.”
“Body Rush” was officially released on May 31, 2016, and the release was celebrated shortly thereafter at an exclusive red carpet event in New York City, where the video was screened to a standing room only crowd.
