Congratulations to Keith Harris

This is especially true for our songwriter/producer client Keith Harris, who wrote two (2) Billboard Hot 100 Top 5 songs that have dominated the charts over the past six months, for the über hot Black Eyed Peas. The first is "Meet Me Halfway," which Billboard commended for its "...funk guitar, hand claps and distorted pulses." The Billboard Hot 100 #1 song, "Imma Be," praised as "a pounding, assertive club thumper," is a hip-hop reflective, pop credible song; proof positive that the Peas still possess their edge. ASCAP recently acknowledged Keith's participation in the song with a "#1 Plaque" presented for his songwriting contributions.
