Los Angeles, CA – The highly-anticipated “Tough Times Don’t Last (TTDL)” from breakthrough hip hop artist Asem is now released to e-tailers and retailers worldwide. This third studio album “Tough Times Don’t Last” from the man known as “punchline king” marks Asem’s first US release and the end of a personal journey. “I had stopped believing in myself,” Asem said in a statement, “I endured a lot of betrayal, back stabbing and people turning their backs on me whiles recording this album. I learned others were just trying to use me to see how much they could take from me. A lot of people I considered friends and business partners burned me badly. I ended up having to spend another year rewriting the album.” “Tough Times Don’t Last (TTDL)” features the singles “Wasted,” “Crisis,” “TTDL (Intro),” and “Big Johnny” . It also includes Asem’s tribute single to Nelson Mandela, “46664 (Madiba).”
The album is on sale now through MTV, iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play, Rdio, Xbox Music, Rhapsody, Sony Music Unlimited, and other online stores. It will also be available through Target, Best Buy and other big box retailers.
Asem came on the scene in 2008 with the release of his first official single, “Give Me Blow”, which quickly became the most shared song by Ghanaian youths leading to his current ability to draw crowds in the tens of thousands in Ghana. Since then, he has released 3 albums (more coming soon), toured internationally, including dates in Africa, Europe, and the US, has performed with Ja Rule, Fat Joe, Rick Ross, Omarion, and many other very established artists, and has earned sponsorships from The World Bank and Glo Mobile.
