To celebrate the release of his debut album, “El Dorado,” singer 24KGoldn has partnered with rising social music platform Geojam, to reward his most loyal fans.
Fans can compete on Geojam to win a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. One lucky fan and their guest will take a private jet from Los Angeles to his hometown of San Francisco and spend the day with 24KGoldn.
“I think there’s no better way to connect with your fans than giving them the chance to have unique experiences and create memories with you and own a piece of your life and your lifestyle,” said 24KGoldn in a statement.
On top of a jam-packed day filled with sightseeing, shopping and quality dining, multiple winners will also have the opportunity to cop some branded merch and receive signed limited edition kicks. For 24KGoldn and Geojam, this venture has proven to be nothing short of sensational.
“As a company whose mission is for everyone to experience moments together, we couldn’t be more excited to give fans the opportunity of a lifetime with one of the world’s top artists,” said Sarah Figueroa, co-founder and CEO of Geojam in a press release.
Formally known as Golden Landis Von Jones, the 20-year old found his initial taste of mainstream success in late 2019 with his viral debut single “Valentino.” He followed up by dropping an eight-track EP titled “Dropped Outta College.” The EP had a multi-week run at No.1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart.
Last year, the hip-hop newcomer solidified his spot in the rap game by becoming a member of XXL’s 2020 Freshman Class. Since then, the young bay area native has continued to flourish with zero signs of stopping. Last July, he dropped “Mood” ft. Iann Dior, which was No.1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 for three consecutive weeks. The song is his highest charting single to date. With this release, he cemented his own place in history as the first rapper from San Francisco to ever be certified platinum.
Geojam is a tech music startup that is actively revolutionizing the way artists and fans connect, share and discover new music. Singer Mariah Carey joined the company as the executive advisor in November. Launched last October, the social music platform allows users to engage with artists on a deeper, more intimate level. Fans can earn redeemable points for exclusive experiences with artists, limited edition items and exclusive merch.
