The two iconic songwriters will oversee the supergroup’s sound direction as they make history on the Web3 scene. Their NFT collection currently ranks No. 1 in OpenSea’s NFT music charts in a rapidly-evolving niche!
Hit-Boy and James Fauntleroy join the KINGSHIP music NFT project
The leading music producers James Fauntleroy and Hit-Boy have just joined the KINGSHIP NFT project as co-executive producers. James Fauntleroy is a multi-Grammy-winning songwriter; in fact, he is the first pure producer to receive the “Song of the Year” Grammy award for Bruno Mars’ “24k Magic”. Meanwhile, Hit-Boy, a fellow multi-award winner, has been producing hit records for Jay-Z, Rihanna, Travis Scott, and more.
Together, the award-winning artists will shape the supergroup’s musical evolution. In order to do so, the new team will collaborate with Mutant DJ Arnell, KINGSHIP’s main producer.
“It’s so exciting to be a part of something historical and ambitious”, said James Fauntleroy. “As a huge nerd, and music fanatic, I can’t wait to see what comes from the intersection of the web3 collectors/creatives and the entertainment creative community.”
In addition, NFT producer Hit-Boy confessed to being “always looking to push things forward musically. This is a great opportunity to do something new in the web3 space.”
KINGSHIP is a collection of 5,000 NFT Key Cards offering access to a music-centered virtual supergroup. Currently, the KINGSHIP group consists of a rare Mutant Ape and three rare Bored Ape collectibles.
Each Key Card NFT holder gains access to exclusive songs, a dedicated community, and more unique content produced under Hit-Boy and James Fauntleroy’s guidance. Accordingly, digital assets come with different rarities too. For example, there’s a Key Card option for each of the four KINGSHIP band members:
- Arnell (producer, drums, beats);
- Hud (keyboards, guitar, vocals);
- Captain (bass, vocals);
- KING (lead vocals).
The KINGSHIP NFT collection sold out in August. At the moment of writing, the project ranks No. 1 on the OpenSea Music NFT chart. Moreover, the band has recently signed a partnership with M&M, which they showcased in their most recent video, “Rider”.
