Pleasure P Set to "Make Some Noise!"; The New Bad Boy of R&B Joins R. Kelly on Tour, Kicking Off Thursday, October 8th at Connecticut's Foxwoods Resort Casino; New Single, "Under," Ascending the Top 10 on Billboard's "R&B/Hip-Hop Songs" Chart; Named One of XXL'S "Ten for '10"

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 8, 2009) - Swagga Entertainment/Atlantic recording artist Pleasure P has revealed plans to join R. Kelly on his hugely anticipated "Ladies Make Some Noise!" tour of North America. The dates begin Thursday, October 8th, at Foxwoods Resort Casino's MGM Grand Theater in Mashantucket, Connecticut, and then continue through early November (see itinerary below). Additional dates will be announced shortly.

October 8th will also see the launch of Pleasure's official webstore, located at http://store.pleasurepmusic.com. The site offers a range of exclusive merchandise, alongside digital downloads of the LA-based singer's chart-topping debut album, "THE INTRODUCTION OF MARCUS COOPER."

Named one of XXL Magazine's "Ten For '10," Pleasure P has only just returned from this summer's hugely successful "Young Money Presents: America's Most Wanted Music Festival" tour alongside Lil' Wayne, Young Jeezy, Drake, and Soulja Boy. "THE INTRODUCTION OF MARCUS COOPER," was a #1 R&B smash on the iTunes Store upon its June release. The collection includes the hit singles "Did You Wrong," "Under," and the #1 smash, "Boyfriend #2." The latter track was a #1 Urban radio sensation earlier this spring, while also reaching the top 10 at Rhythmic outlets nationwide. In addition, the song's companion video clip scored major rotation at MTV, MTV Jams, MTV Hits, and VH1 Soul. "Boyfriend #2" also reached the #2 spot on BET's "106 & Park," where Pleasure has made a series of electrifying live appearances.

"Under," the latest single from "THE INTRODUCTION OF MARCUS COOPER," is shaping up as yet another blockbuster for Pleasure P. The track is currently #7 with-a-bullet on Billboard's "R&B/Hip-Hop Songs" chart, while its companion video -- directed by Erik White (Diddy, T.I., Chris Brown) -- recently hit #1 on BET's "106 & Park." The clip is streaming now on Pleasure's MySpace page, located at www.myspace.com/pleasurepmyspace.

The success of "Boyfriend #2" and "Under" follows Pleasure P's smash debut single, "Did You Wrong," which lit up the Rhythmic charts last fall. The track's accompanying video -- which can be viewed at Pleasure P's official website, www.pleasurepmusic.com -- proved a blockbuster introduction, reaching the top 5 on BET's "106 & Park" countdown.

Pleasure P -- who first attracted international attention as a member of Bluestar/Atlantic recording group Pretty Ricky -- heralded the release of "THE INTRODUCTION OF MARCUS COOPER" with a rapturously received live appearance at this year's Hot 97 Summer Jam 2009 at New Jersey's Giants Stadium. "The New Bad-Boy of R&B" has also been praised in a wide array of publications and online outlets, including a cover profile in the June/July issue of Right On! and features in Vibe, XXL, Sister 2 Sister, Black Men, Vibe, Hip Hop Weekly, DJBooth.net, ConcreteLoop.com, UrbanStreetz.com, and BallerStatus.com, which ranked him as one of the "Top 10 R&B Singers in the Game Right Now."
