As a Member of ProjectX

Music has always been the biggest passion of Luh Kel’s life, and he started singing when he was two years old. He cites the likes of Chris Brown, Usher, and Tank as his musical inspirations. Even in his childhood, he delivered memorable performances at various events in St. Louis. In March 2015, at the DJCF Center, he was introduced to other members of ProjectX: Davion Swinson, Aziz Muhammad, and Nicholas Hill. They performed together for the first time at Harris Stowe State University in St. Louis. The success of this performance led to their appearances in several more events. ProjectX was then booked for a performance at the Missouri Historical Museum event, Twilight Tuesday. Performing as Jackson 5, the group won over more than 6000 people in the audience.

As a Solo Artist

It is unclear what happened to Project X. However, eventually, Luh Kel began attempting to establish himself as a solo artist. It was not easy at first. He did covers of popular tracks and tried to reach a bigger audience through social media. When these things did not work, he decided to take a break from music and did conventional jobs. During this period, he was apparently quite disliked in his city, which he believes stemmed from the fact that people did not want him to become successful.

Luh Kel later returned to music, intending to create original tracks. He found a perfect beat on YouTube from BubbaGotBeatz and composed the track ‘Wrong’ around it. He released a snippet of the track on social media, and it went viral. People loved it and wanted to hear the full track. He secured a contract with industry manager London Smith to represent him. Smith, in turn, got him a deal with Cinematic Music Group.

The CEO and producer of Cinematic, Jonny Shipes, had a conversation with Luh Kel on Instagram. With Shipes and musical artist 11VN serving as producers, Luh Kel made a studio version of ‘Wrong’. He also collaborated in the studio with Grammy-winning producers, who helped him hone his talent and sound. The music video for ‘Wrong’ was released on his YouTube channel on April 9, 2019, and like many other things that became a trend in 2019, the track garnered huge popularity following a challenge. Fans started uploading their own versions of the #WrongChallenge on YouTube and Instagram. However, the track became a real phenomenon on TikTok. There are over five million videos on that platform set on the track.

On November 15, 2019, Luh Kel put out his debut album through Cinematic. It is comprised of 12 tracks, including ‘Wrong’, ‘Hero’, ‘Cold Heart’, and ‘Pull Up’.
