Foreign Exchange Reacts To Grammy Nomination
The duo's second album Leave It All Behind was not only well-received, but will now also join other Grammy nominees in the Best Urban/Alternative Performance category for the track "Daykeeper" featuring Muhsinah.
"We haven't come forward with a personal press release or statement of any kind because truthfully, the past week has been a whirlwind of events and its taken us a while to really wrap our heads around all that's happened," Phonte and Nicolay wrote in a letter to fans. "Needless to say, we are both filled with feelings of shock, wonder, amazement, nervousness, humility, and extreme gratitude."
Along with the letter, the unlikely pair created a short video which takes a look at how the group went from virtual obscurity to independent Grammy nominated artists. "Consider this our pre-Grammy speech...lol. We encourage all of you to pass this along and spread the word, as we feel our story is a big inspiration to artists everywhere. Every once in a blue moon, the good guys do win."
