Many people are pushed to go after certain careers for several different reasons. Some seek fame and fortune. Others are urged by their families. For rising R&B star Cony, he never expected to start a career in the music industry.
A resident of Carteret, New Jersey, Cony (whose real name is Marcony St. Juste) fell in love with music at an early age. He began writing poetry while he was in high school. Cony later transitioned into writing song lyrics, developing a passion for music and entertainment. The poet turned lyricist started writing as a way to cope with his life when his grandmother died. Her death left a strong impact on his life and allowed him to find himself.
Since then, Cony has been able to hone his craft and has been on the surge, reaching stardom faster than usual. He has been featured on several outlets, ranging from Power 105.1 on the radio to The Source Magazine to Fox News.
As an artist, Cony falls into the R&B genre. He has shown his versatility with rap, making him one of the most intriguing artists to look out for this year. Cony started trending when he co-signed with DJ Envy from Power 105.1 when he was mentioned as an emerging artist.
Cony released his first album under Equity Distribution. Within the first week of its release, Cony started trending on Apple Music. The success his first album brought would have gotten into anyone’s head. However, Cony remained his humble self and continued his activities within his community.
A graduate of Carteret High School, Cony is a product of the Pathways mentorship program. He and other students join Pathways’ mission as they continue their focus on substance abuse prevention, bullying prevention, safe driving, suicide prevention, healthy relationship development, and future planning.
The subject of Cony’s music reflects on his experiences in life. His music paints a picture of everything he’s been through, from the love he lost to the failed relationships. Cony has the unique gift to project his emotions through his songs. Listeners will find they can feel every bit of pain and every ounce of heartbreak he’s been through. Whether they’ve been through similar ordeals or not, people will be able to feel his struggles.
Despite being relatively new to the industry, Cony is renowned for his drive and work ethic. Anyone can see, even from his movement, how hard the rising artist works. Such is his work ethic that people would think that he doesn’t sleep. Cony spends most of his time in the studio. There one can find the R&B artist building his catalog. He currently has over a hundred unreleased songs as he continues recording and giving out major features.
Cony already has his eyes on the grandest stage of them all and sees himself winning in the Grammys. His other goal is to work behind the music and manage artists as an A&R. Cony’s dream is to be as involved with anything music-related as possible because he is music.
