Going back to his R&B roots for his album “Stereotype”, he worked with megastar producer Timbaland on his song “Magic Hotel”, amongst some other prominent artists such as Fatman Scoop as well as Canada’s own Classified. In 2015, Karl co-wrote OMI’s “HULA HOOP”. This was followed by the signing of a worldwide publishing deal with BMG Publishing through Zach Katz. 2016 had proven to be another successful year for KW with the release of his EP entitled “The Export Vol. 1”, which included the hit single, “Amateur At Love feat. Kardinal Offishall”. The single landed in the top 10 on the iHeart Radio Charts and was also certified Gold.
In addition, Karl recently teamed up with 3-time Grammy Award winner Nelly and renowned producer of the worldwide hit single “Thunder” by Imagine Dragons, Jayson Dezuzio, to create “Way Low”, which was part of the recently released EP: Blacklight (The Export Vol 2). Since then Karl has won several awards, one of them being the SOCAN award for ‘Best Pop Song’ for Bulow’s debut smash hit “Not A Love Song”.
The new track, “Don’t F With Me,” is out today. If you want to get up and move today, this is the song for you. There are so many dynamic elements of this track, which is very beneficial for the track. Vocally it is a great release, but the standout here is how well the entire track is put together. The production is on point and puts it in the top tier of pop/dance music. Make sure to add this one to your playlists.
