After their performance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last week, there is no doubt that Ahmir is quickly becoming one of R&B’s most powerful forces. They have over 70 million views and almost 400,000 subscribers on their YouTube channel, AHMIR TV. Their music and videos have gained the attention of many notable celebrities such as Ryan Seacrest, Ashton Kutcher, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Pink, Lady Antebellum, Perez Hilton and many more. But unlike the growing trend of the YouTube generation, this did not happen overnight. Napoleon Hill, one of the first and greatest writers on success once said, “Victory is always possible for the person who refuses to stop fighting.” This is the truth through which AHMIR, the dynamic, Boston-based, four-member Pop/R&B group lives by. AHMIR has fought through and overcome every adversity, and now they are ready to make their mark on the world.
With 400,000 subscribers and over 70 million YouTube views, AHMIR is the undisputed #1 R&B group on the global video-sharing website. Yahoo! listed them as the “Top 5 YouTube Cover Artists. The Best Acts You Should Be Listening To Today.” MTV Iggy declared AHMIR as “Top 10 Most Likely to Become The Next Justin Bieber.”
The talented foursome has used their popularity not just as a platform for their music career, but also to raise awareness for various non-profits and charities locally and across the globe. The group has used their success to bring awareness to Lucy’s Love Bus children’s cancer charity, The Haiti Relief Fund, American Red Cross, American Cancer Society, YMCA, and The Pixel Project to Stop Violence Against Women, to name a few. Their cover video of Pink’s “Perfect” was named one of the top Anti-Bullying PSA’s by The Huffington Post.
After meeting with nearly every major record label, on September 22, 2010 AHMIR was signed to Robbins Entertainment. AHMIR’s debut single, “War” is gradually making waves throughout Top 40 radio stations across the country, gaining the attention of syndicated radio host and Z100 music director, Jagger of Clear Channel’s “The Weekend Throwdown” and Sirius XM radio’s top Pop music station 20 on 20 and R&B Hits station The Heat.
No, AHMIR’s success did not come overnight, nor will it last fifteen minutes. AHMIR has proven that they are more than just a fleeting fad of the moment, but rather an undeniable force that is here to stay. AHMIR plans on debuting their first album under Robbins Entertainment in 2013.
