I voted for Social Club as Best Artist of 2015
Social Club — as a group and its members as solo artists — never left the spotlight in 2015.
The duo formed by Marty and FERN released a full-length album titled US as Social Club in March, and US debuted at No. 103 on the Billboard 200, No. 3 among Christian Albums, No. 9 among Rap Albums, No. 11 among Independent Albums and No. 60 among Top Album Sales. When Social Club told Rapzilla that it may release multiple projects by year’s end, it wasn’t lying.
On Aug. 28, Marty’s debut solo EP, Marty For President, went up for pre-order. The marketing genius made his project available for $2.99, and it skyrocketed up iTunes’ charts to No. 1 on the Hip-Hop/Rap chart and No. 7 among all genres. After Marty For President officially dropped in September, the EP debuted on Billboard at No. 64 on the Billboard 200, No. 30 on Top Album Sales, No. 1 on Top Christian Albums, No. 7 on Top Rap Albums, No. 9 on Top Independent Albums and No. 14 on Top Digital Albums charts.
FERN’s debut solo EP, 68 & Douglas, continued Social Club’s rise in 2015. He dropped the STREETRUNNER-produced project in December, and it landed on Billboard at No. 15 among Top Christian Albums, No. 21 among Independent Albums and No. 5 among Heatseekers Albums.
