Today, Cash Money Records’ newest artist Eighty8 makes a grand entrance with his new single, “Hit.” Blending smooth 808s with rowdy horns as the beat grooves, listen as Eighty8 seamlessly switches his flow from vibrant bars to a chantable chorus. The track illuminates Eighty8’s dynamic and diverse sound, integrating Hip Hop and R&B vibes with style and substance. The Miami native draws on his Jamaican and Haitian heritage to translate emotional extremes into an unpredictable and undeniable hybrid of R&B, Hip Hop, Pop, and Island flavors.
At three-years-old, he realized he could sing and spent hours replaying an old Michael Jackson VHS as he obsessively studied the King of Pop. After grinding for years, he caught the attention of Balistic Beats and dropped the single “Pree.” The song lit up local radio and amassed 1.6 million Spotify streams. On its heels, he maintained momentum with “Trilly Wonka,” accumulating another 561K Spotify streams. The music made its way to Cash Money Records who signed him in 2020.
“Eighty8is untouchable,” says Cash Money Co-Founder & CEO Ronald “Slim” Williams. “He can sing. He can rap. He’s really the full package. He’s bringing a new international sound unlike anything else out there right now, and he’s got enough star power to blow up this year.”
