"Artists You Need To Know: Destined Universal"

Anyone who’s a friend or follower of this blog knows I go hard for new talent, especially when it involves someone from my generation who’s doing their thing–the RIGHT way. Insert artist Destined Universal.

The 20 year old singer/songwriter is new to the music scene, but he’s already making waves, that are sure to turn into musical tsunamis in no time. The Philly native first dropped on the music scene as the co-producer of the tribute project: Legendary: A Decade of Stacie Orrico in October 2010. I recently featured a post on that project that can be located HERE.

Destined Universal, as he’s known, has worked along side the likes of twin hip-hop duo Nina Sky (composed of Nicole and Natalie Albino) who are signed to Polo Grounds/J Records. He’s also worked alongside another young mover and shaker, JoJo, another multi-platinum artist who once hailed from the Interscope family. Needless to say, he’s made some great connections in a short amount of time. In fact, Destined worked with both Nina Sky and JoJo last summer at the 2011 Girls Who Rock benefit concert for She’s The First.

He’s become quite the talk of the internet. In November 2011, celebrity teen blogger Daric Richie (aka Baz Bendell), founder of the Bazaar Daily News/Bazaar Media Group, Inc., endorsed Destined as his protege, publishing several features and interviews. This amazing social media buzz got even more eyes (or should I say EARS) looking (and listening) in this young talents direction.

His style is described as having a dance floor vibe…..convincing you to the dance floor and then hitting you over the head with a tinge of R&B and Soul with pop leanings.

Destined Universal is on the journey to living up to his name: Destined to be Universal. This month, the rising star is scheduled to release his first international record, “Luv U Betta,” which will drop in the U.K. (released January 27th), along with his single, “Love Life,” which will hit the U.S. market on January 31st. His highly anticipated EP, entitled Love, Pain, & The Dancefloor, is rumored for an March 2012 release, per his manager, Joseph Rodriguez.

Still working on that hot first release.



Destined Universal is one of the newer faces to step onto the pop scene. Born in Philadelphia, the 22 year-old singer/songwriter made his introduction to the music industry as co-producer of the tribute project, Legendary: A Decade of Stacie Orrico in October 2010.

In the summer of 2011, Destined hit the social scene, making an appearance at the Girls Who Rock benefit concert for Shes The First, alongside twin-sister duo group Nina Sky and multi-platinum recording artist JoJo. Shortly after, Mr. Universal made a musical breakthrough and went viral on the internet, releasing a one-minute clip of his buzz track "Luv U Betta."

In November 2011, Universal captured the attention of celebrity teen blogger Daric Richie (aka Baz Bendell), founder of Bazaar Daily News/Bazaar Media Group, Inc. Richie endorsed Universal as his protege, publishing several features and interviews on the pop newcomer.

On February 9, 2012, Destined released his debut single entitled "LoveLife." On Valentine's Day, the single was released via iTunes and Amazon, establishing his artistry. The single peaked in popularity in the Northeast, and gained favor in Canada, Singapore, Tokyo & scattered areas along Spain . The exposure would eventually earn Mr. Universal his second endorsement as Artist Ambassador of salon industry leader SUPERCUTS' Rock The Cut program, his first BIG national campaign to date including promotions in all of their 2,000+ locations.

After touring and finishing out his previous endorsements, Universal took some time to do some soul-searching, taking a year away from music. This year, he has returned to the music scene with his brand new single "Ghost," scheduled for a January 31st release. "Ghost" serves as the first single off of Universal's forthcoming album Redemption, due out later this year.
