Former Charles City Comet Malik Knighten, moved to Los Angeles a couple years ago to pursue his dreams of being a famous musician. He joined boy band Next Town Down who currently has over 700,000 subscribers on YouTube.
The chronicle towards fame continued as Knighten and Next Town Down recently dropped their first full-length EP titled ‘Juliet’. The tape bolsters big features such 6LACK and Rick The Kid – the record is 6 songs long.
The band posted on Instagram regarding the release: “This is truly a moment. Thank u guys for waiting on us. everything we do is for u and we wouldn’t be here without u. We spent a lot of time and gave a lot of ourselves in this project, so We’re proud to give u something that we handcrafted for you guys. we hope it embodies who we are individually and as lovers. This is just the beginning of the love story.”
Riding that momentum, the band sang the National Anthem at the Los Angeles Kings game on Tuesday.
