1 min read

(UK) Multi-Platinum selling UK artist OWS has announced his debut solo single ‘Waterline’, which will be released on June 8th following his debut UK solo headline show.

Most known for being part of one of the UK’s biggest boybands, OWS is the new solo project of former JLS member, Oritsé Williams. Emerging mysteriously at the end of last year with no marketing and little social media, initial attention for OWS came from Jay Z’s US blog Life + Times, with interest following from some of the biggest names in music including Kanye West, Pusha T and Jay Z himself.

‘Waterline’ is the debut release from OWS and is a track that builds slowly with sincere lyrics, before launching into a huge pop chorus that showcases Oritsé’s powerful vocal. The chorus features a guest rap from GOOD Music’s Pusha T, who also appears in the emotive and impactful black and white video.

Having sold 10 million albums and with 5 number 1 singles under his belt, OWS is now ready to take his music in a global direction.
