Shawn Connor is a multi-genre urban pop/rap artist from South Carolina making serious waves with his new album, “Champion”. The triumphant and epic-sounding 13-song solo album was released via BAC Monopoly. “Champion” features the soon to be hit singles “Sonny Genovese & Ain’t Too Friendly”.
South Carolina boasts a long list of artists born in the Palmetto State. The list includes musical stars like James Brown, Darius Rucker, Teddy Pendergrass, Young Jeezy, Toro y Moi, and more. However, Shawn is aiming to be the first to put his town on the map. He was raised in the small town of Eutawville, South Carolina, a small, peaceful town located on the banks of Lake Marion with a population of just 359 people.
Champion is Shawn Connor’s 7th release this year, including singles, albums, and a deluxe edition but he’s been making music for years. Shawn has previously released 4 albums and 9 mixtapes since 2018. He grew up in a house where music was played often. It was there he developed his love for it and also his style.
“I started making music in 2018 because growing up it was the only thing I ever wanted to do in life,” he says. “Listening to 80’s pop music with my grandma and 90’s- 2000’s Rap music with my mom I knew that I had to do that as well”.
His goal for the rest of 2022 is to push the South Carolina signature sound to a mainstream audience and “shine the light on one of the most hidden gems in the country”. With an album like “Champion” he is well on his way to making Shawn Connor a household name.
