Several instruments combine to create music. And just like in any other group, there’s always one that stands out – the Keyz. Born James Foye III, the 23-year-old musical phenomenon is taking production to the next level one note at a time.
After eight months of hard work, Keyz managed to land co-production credits with the hottest chick in the game – Beyonce. Under his mentor PoLow Da Don, Keyz partnered with Timberland and Sonny Digital to produce the Queen’s single, “I Been On.” Adding his signature keys and some production instrumentation, he had landed overnight
Stardom.Prior to his latest success, Keyz along with producer Ayo, both a part of the production company, The Upperclassmen, produced Omarion’s single “Let’s Talk” off of MMG’s complication “Self Made 2,” which releases summer 2012. As a junior at the Art Institute of Atlanta double majoring in Music Business and Audio Production, the BMI artist is keeping busy focusing on graduation and perfecting his craft. As he nears his schooling, he continues to multitask production gigs as they come.
The New York native is currently working on production for Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Jennifer Hudson, Diggy Simmons, Sevyn and Asher Monroe. With his production with Polow on “What Happened To Us” by Cash Money’s Veronica ft. 2 Chainz blasting airwaves, Keyz is just getting used to recognition but plans to keep his head in the books and fingers glued to the keys!
