There's a good chance that you've been hearing his new hit, "She Bout It" a few times a day if you've listen to Power 96 lately. His name doesn't initially seem ready-made for stardom but his sound definitely is. And when you think about it, if you're a good enough talent, you shouldn't really need a stage name anyway.
I'm talking about Charles Sweeting, the 23-year-old Carol City native who's been blowing up lately and getting lot's of club and radio spins because of his summer anthem, "She Bout It" which you can click on below.
The dude's been performing all over South Florida lately, popping up on stages at Passions, VooDoo, Cafe Iguana Pines, and the Crazy Horse to name a few. He's sort of in the baby stages of forming a career but so far, I like what I've heard. This weekend, he's playing the Power 96 Beach House party in Miami and his set starts at 3 p.m. on Saturday. There's lot's of national acts who'll be at the event over the weekend but if you want to support a good local act, don't miss his set.
