You may have no­ticed a large gath­er­ing in the park­ing lot of Sweet Side of the Moon Bak­ery and Café on Sun­day. It was the film­ing of Glace Bay hip hop artist Mitchell Bai­ley’s lat­est video.

The event fea­tured shoot­ing of the of­fi­cial mu­sic video for Bai­ley’s sin­gle “Oprah Win­frey.”

It’s the sin­gle off Bai­ley’s lat­est EP, Sea­son Two, which, ac­cord­ing to the lo­cal per­former, has been do­ing well on mu­sic plat­forms itunes and Spo­tify.

“It went amaz­ingly well – it did bet­ter than Sea­son One,” said Bai­ley.

“I charted fourth on the Cana­dian Hip Hop charts for the coun­try on itunes.”

Bai­ley ad­mits he spent much of the early days of the EP’S re­lease glued to his phone, watch­ing how his mu­sic charted.

There were plenty of sur­prises in­clud­ing a pe­riod when his CD passed rap su­per­star Eminem on the Cana­dian charts.

“It was kind of stress­ful but it went well,” he said, now look­ing back at the EP’S Novem­ber re­lease.

Sea­son Two fol­lows Sea­son One which was re­leased in Septem­ber, both part of an ongoing se­ries that will end when Bai­ley de­cides to stop it.

You can ex­pect the next in­stall­ment, Sea­son Three, some­time in Fe­bru­ary or March.

Bai­ley plans on mov­ing to Mon­treal in Jan­uary where he will do the writ­ing and record­ing of the next EP.

Bai­ley de­cided to re­lease Sea­son Two so quickly af­ter the first one to keep his ca­reer mo­men­tum go­ing and so far, it seems to have worked.

“All the songs on Sea­son Two were cre­ated since Septem­ber,” said Bai­ley. “It’s a per­fect rep­re­sen­ta­tion of where I am at right now.”

In ad­di­tion to his mu­sic, Bai­ley is in­volved in www. young­su­per­stars. ca which of­fers a cloth­ing line, a pub­lic re­la­tions ser­vice and other prod­ucts for young mu­si­cians to fur­ther their ca­reers.
