RELEASE – FRIDAY, 1 MAY 2020: BGC Melody, the first Cameroonian American record label with representation all over Africa, launched an album under the title “Anonymous Angel, Vol. 1” project, the first compilation of unreleased songs from some of its former and current artists. The album of 12 songs (representing the 12 months of the year) is mainly made of songs the label had no plans of releasing on their future albums, for one reason or the other.
In some cases, the artists are either no longer with BGC Melody, and in others, the artists have evolved so much in maturity, style and genre that it makes sense to release the songs as separate projects rather than on the artists’ own album projects.
The album brings together artists like Bah’Ndong, Deenah, Jayé, Elie Solo and LaLa, with productions by Marc Eff, Sango Edi LeDrae and the young Domiguez Jnr, an in-house Artistic Director and beatmaker.
“We’re setting up the Anonymous Angel project right now in order to be able to publish songs of great quality which we spent a lot of money producing but went nowhere”, record label owner and CEO Don Julio Bats explained. “Other than the artists’ royalties that will always be theirs and paid in the future, we intend to use all proceeds from the Anonymous Angel projects as a core tool of community involvement within our own corporate social responsibility model and charitable strategy. All the monies from sales and streaming of Anonymous Angel projects will be donated to various causes dear to BGC and to each of our individual artists. Our message to our community and the world at large is that we don’t need to wait until we all become very rich in order to think about helping others, especially in these times of COVID19”.
The album will be available on all major online platforms on the 15th of May after the initial exclusive Boomplay period, as Boomplay has partnered with BGC Melody Management to put in place a special two-week plan for promotion of the album to audiences in Africa and Asia, where people who download the app can purchase or stream for free by using mobile money accounts.
BGC Melody is a record label that prides itself in its model of Unity through Equality and Diversity, and social responsibility is a core aspect of BGC corporate culture.
