South Central Los Angeles-based quintet, Brutha, composed of the Harrell brothers, Anthony, Jared, Jacob, Cheyenne, and Grady is poised and ready to steal the R&B spotlight. Their BET reality show “Brothers To Brutha,” has become one of the highest rated new shows on the network since its premiere on November 18th.
Brutha’s popularity is evident is cyberspace as well! BruthaTV, the group’s YouTube Channel. has received over 22,000 views and ranks among the most viewed channels on YouTube. Their rendition of Love Lockdown is well on its way to the 100,000 views mark.
The six-episode reality show mini-series will climax on December 23rd, the same day their debut album, BRUTHA, hits stores. The band will also celebrate release day with a return appearance on BET’s 106th and Park, to perform their hit single, “I Can’t Hear the Music.” In October, the group visited 106th and Park to premiere the song’s performance video directed by Jesse Terrero.
Recorded primarily in Atlanta, the album is a soulful collaboration with a who’s who of urban songwriters and producers, including Jazze Pha, Shae Taylor, the Corna Boyz, the Heavyweights, and 112 founding member Daron Jones.
“Brothers To Brutha” is a new concept, an emotionally-charged docu-drama of five brothers determined to make it to the top. The show focuses on Brutha’s search for balance between family and fame, once they have been signed to Def Jam. Under the management of their uncle, music veteran Donny ‘Drano’ Harrell, and the tutelage of the late EVP of Def Jam, Shakir Stewart, the group struggles to fulfill the Harrell clan’s dream of success. The brothers are constantly put to the test as pressure builds between blood and business, and the demands of the music industry challenge them to stay ‘brother to brother.’
