Prince Raphael Shawan (PRS) is a multi-platinum recording artist with eight Billboard Music Awards, four ASCAP Awards, a pair of nominations for American Music Awards, and a Soul Train Award to his credit.

A visionary and revolutionary “new” artist who’s worked in the music industry for more than a decade. Fans worldwide know him as “Tweet” as member of the multi-platinum trio, NEXT. The group is responsible for some of R&B’s more memorable hits – including the chart-topping singles “Wifey,” “Butta Love,” “I Still Love You,” and “Too Close” (which ranks #24 on The Billboard Hot 100 All-Time Top Songs).

But now he’s going it alone, embarking on a new musical mission, and he’s created a new and universal sound – world music, to showcase his multi-dimensional talents. His new persona will showcase the unique innovative singing/songwriting talents of an artist who is a consummate performer.

PRS will release his debut solo album "The Age of Aquarius" in 2013. The first two singles from the album have been released and are fast becoming club and radio hits worldwide. "Slow Love" ft.
