Toronto recording artist Ramone making waves on BET
Toronto artist Ramone has run an impressive campaign to promote his My Name Is Ramone 2 EP, and he recently saw a major boost to his numbers with BET getting behind his music.
Black Entertainment Television (BET) has been a leader in urban programming for close to 40 years, and they recently added two of Ramone’s videos to their rotation including “Believe Me,” and the newly released “Get It.”
“I grew up watching BET, so this is more so validation for me rather than an achievement.” – Ramone
The video for the Cxleb-produced “Get It” was directed by BrownGuyMadeIT and has racked up close to 20K views in just a few days. With the single shaping up to be one of Ramone’s most successful releases to date—and platforms like BET starting to lend their support—Ramone is certainly one to keep a close watch on for the remainder of 2019.
We asked Ramone what BET’s support means to him as an artist:
“It honestly feels great. It’s one of those things that you have to sit down and really take in. The musical environment in Toronto doesn’t typically breed accomplishments like these. Everyone has a crab in the bucket mentality. Unfortunately, because of that, people won’t truly understand the significance of this until my story is finished. I grew up watching BET, so this is more so validation for me rather than an achievement. No government funding, no co-signs or record deals. I did this from the ground up and it is a true blessing. I’m proud to be apart of Toronto history.”
