HillaryJane’s Stix and Stones Peaks at #3 on iTunes R&B
Infiltrate Music’s newest signee HillaryJane, released her debut solo project entitled Stix and Stones today. The 7-song EP, on its first day of release, has reached the number 3 spot on the iTunes R&B/Soul charts.
HillaryJane, as of late, has been no stranger to charting. Her song “Celebrity”, the last single released preceding the full release of Stix and Stones, climbed all the way to number 9 and held for the last 2 weeks on DJBooth.net‘s R&B/Pop chart. Her single “Chimneys” is also currently #1 Most Wanted on RadioU.
Stix and Stones has made its place between a multitude of successful and even Grammy award wining artists within R&B/Soul. HillaryJane’s debut solo project falls one spot below Trey Songz’s Trigga and two spots above 9-time Grammy award winning artist John Legend, who released Love In The Future.
HillaryJane’s EP features only two other artists, who compared to other projects released this year, may be out of the ordinary. The song “Celebrity”, guest starring the St. Louis native and Full Ride Music Group’s Thi’sl, is one of the two songs on HillaryJane’s EP to feature another artist. The other is a remix, which features a little known producer by the name of HXLY KXSS, entitled “Shotgun”.
“I really wanted to offer people me, and not a project that stands on the shoulders of other artists”, says HillaryJane in an interview with Rapzilla earlier this year.
Production for “Celebrity” and the majority of Stix and Stones, with the exception of “Shotgun”, can be accredited to 808xEliTE. 808xEliTE has produced tracks for the likes of 2Chainz, Lecrae, Papa San, Meek Mill, and Andy Mineo and has acquired over the course of their career both Grammy and Dove Awards.
