Artist’s Spotlight: Tony Stith

Tone Stith was born and raised in Marlton, New Jersey and became involved with music at a very early age. He was familiar with playing drums and learned how to use production software before his teenage years. Also as a teen he began to hone his singing talents which came naturally as the son of a vocalist who had performed with Patti LaBelle. Stith was part of the group SJ3, who caught the attention of Jas Prince, the key figure behind Drake’s success. Stith subsequently went solo with Prince in his corner.

The first fruit of this association was Stith’s co-writing of two songs, “Make Love” and “Liquor,” for Chris Brown’s ‘Royalty’ album. “Liquor” was released as the album’s lead single in June 2014, reached number 60 on the Billboard Hot 100, and went Platinum within five months. During the next two years, Stith was featured on songs by independent artists Von and PARRI$. Stith’s debut album, ‘Can We Talk’, arrived in 2017 via Prince’s Young Empire Music Group (YEMG) and major-label RCA, with production from the duo PRBLMSLVRS. “Light Flex,” a New Jack Swing throwback featuring 2 Chainz, appeared on the Uncle Drew soundtrack in 2018. Later that year, he issued the “Good Company” EP, which featured Swae Lee and Quavo on the title cut and Ty Dolla $ign on “Take It There.” He returned in 2020 with the “Devotion” single. 

And now the artist has returned in 2021 with not one but two projects titled “FWM” and “Still FWM”. It is clear that Stith is on the rise and will rely on his consistency to get him all the way to the top of the charts.
