With the Summerbeatz festivals due to hit our shores in just over a week, organisers have this afternoon revealed that US producer and rapper Soulja Boy has pulled out of the event, saying simply in a statement, “Unfortunately and beyond the promoter’s control, the artist has decided to not make the trip to Australia.”
But they have revealed a replacement – in Ja Rule.
The R&B star has sold more than 35 million albums across the globe, so there’s no denying his star power will only add to the Summerbeatz line-up which already includes Akon, Ciara, Flo Rida, Jay Sean, Travie McCoy and our own Stan Walker.
Summerbeatz kicks off in Brisbane on Friday week.
November 19 : Brisbane (Entertainment Centre)
November 20 : Sydney (Acer Arena)
November 23 : Perth (Burswood Dome)
November 25 : Melbourne (Rod Laver Arena)
