Screen shot 2013-08-12 at 4.58.24 PM

Remember CTZEN, the infectious boy band as seen on X Factor Season 2, known for their authentic vocal ability and universal appeal on the hit show? The LA based group, comprised of four young men in their early twenties– Parker, Kelechi, Calvin and Russel are proving that they are ready to stake their claim to pop supremacy. With a steadily growing fan base, the ever-evolving group continues to rise to the occasion, delivering flawless covers to some of today’s hottest songs. 

The band of brothers known as CTZEN, shake up Fantasia’s hit single, ‘Without Me,’ with their own eclectic, avante-garde rendition. The heartthrobs showcase their seamless harmonies, adding depth and originality to the club banger. The artistic video shot and directed by Ctzen’s Kelechi Kalu has a high-end luxury theme complete with subtle vengeance. The video illustrates a tale of cheating women taking advantage of the very men that introduced them to a life of success, leaving the boys to soulfully croon, 

“What would you be with out me?”

“We chose to remake Fantasia’s ‘Without Me’ because we love her as an artist,” explains Calvin Seabrooks, 1/4 member of Ctzen. “We also wanted to do something R&B driven to showcase our range.”
