The hip-hop/R&B duo Planet VI (aka Rock City) are no strangers to the music scene. The Grammy-nominated duo has been working behind the scenes for years, penning songs for superstars like Rihanna, Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, Usher, Enrique Iglesias, R.

Now ready to bring their own talents to the forefront, the versatile duo has rebranded themselves as Planet VI (pronounced Planet 6)...

Hailing from St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands, Planet VI is comprised of brothers Theron (aka UpTown AP) & Timothy (aka – A.I. ). They have created a sound that blends Caribbean twangs of consciousness, street struggles and island life with a hip-hop/pop appeal. Born to perform, the duo started honing its craft at an early age, winning local talent shows by the age of 10. They used their prize money to help pay the family’s household bills. After achieving incredible local success in the Virgin Islands, Planet VI landed in Atlanta, where they began writing songs for other artists. They quickly placed their first song “The Rain” for Akon via his DJ, Benny D, and in a short time, they penned a staggering number of tunes for a wide variety renowned artists.
