We’re excited to share that PXTN’s single “Take It” is featured in Season 3 of Netflix’s “On My Block” out March 11.
“Take It” is released today on all platforms via Symphonic. “The song was inspired by a conversation about selfishness. The world needs to be selfless and give more. I’ve learned that the more you give, the more it comes back, so Take It!” – PXTN
You can hear the song in Episode 305 of “On My Block” entitled “Chapter Twenty-Five”. This placement is one of many syncs secured by Symphonic’s licensing division, Bodega Sync. Launched in January 2019, Bodega is a full service one-stop creative licensing agency representing a highly curated community of independent artists and labels for sync placements in all forms of media.
Paxton Ingram’s rise to fame began with the Miami singer successfully competing on season 10 of NBC’s “The Voice”. Ingram gained national recognition for his performance of “Break Every Chain”, which reached #1 on the Billboard Chart and #1 on iTunes. Following a Top 8 finish, the 22-year old self-released his debut EP Recover in the Summer of 2016. The Soul/R&B project produced singles “Barricade” and “Hands (Piano Version)”, which charted in the Top 100 on iTunes Pop Charts. Ingram continued with performances across the country, and brand endorsements from the likes of Toyota and Nivea Men. In January 2018, Billboard predicted “big things for the young star’s 2018.” The same year, Ingram was crowned as the winner of REVOLT TV’s Be Heard Competition, which earned him a performance with Wu-Tang at their reunion show during SXSW.
Despite the success, Ingram grew frustrated with the lack of new black singers in the pop genre, and in the fall of 2018, the Florida-native returned into the studio under a new artist name: PXTN. PXTN’s debut single “L2LY” was described by Billboard as “captivating…and showing [his] diverse range as an artist.” PXTN adds, “Unfortunately, pop genre has not seen enough diversity with the recent big names entering the scene. I want to bring pop back to the Black communities, which produced such idols as Beyonce, Usher, and recently Rihanna.”
