CP RECORDS RELEASES NEW BELLY AND KESHIA CHANTE SINGLE “GET TO KNOW

April 15, 2008, Toronto, ON -- CP Records is excited to announce the release of Belly and Keshia Chante’s first
collaboration on the soon-to-be-hit single “Get To Know You.” The single comes hot on the heels of hip-hop
Godfather Belly’s first ever Juno win at the 2008 Juno Awards in Calgary. The Gold-selling rapper, who was also

the album debuted at number one on the Canadian rap charts. Later that month, The Revolution's first single
"Pressure" featuring Grammy Award winner Ginuwine, won the 2007 MMVA for Best Rap Video. After interviews
with Geraldo at Large for Fox News, CNN, as well as the Associated Press, The Revolution went Gold in November
