Luv Ya, Bang This!, What Chu Want
J Wess Presents Tha LP is the debut album of American-Australian urban musician J-Wess, released in April 2004. The album has made the top twenty of the Australian album charts and three songs from the album "Bang This", "What Chu Want" and "Luv Ya" have been hits in Australia.
J-Wess wrote and produced the album and recruited the performers on it. He states on his website: "I feel confident that I've done my job as a producer. My job is to find and build talent, to bring new people to the forefront. I wanted to show how deep I go as a producer across the board. I wanted to show my versatility, I didn't want to be pigeon-holed." The album was released on 4 April 2004.
In the middle of 2003, J-Wess' first single, "Bang This", was released. Featuring the contributions of MC Digga and the vocal talents of Kulaia, it quickly gained airplay on Australian radio and Australian video programs. The single reached a peak of number 18 on the ARIA singles charts and the top ten of the Australian urban and dance charts.
The second single "What Chu Want" featured the talents of Lolly as well as MC Digga and Kulaia and was released in late 2003. It reached the Australian top 10 in February 2004 and went gold.
