I.O.U., an acronym for Inside Our Universe, is comprised of Izee and Buck, two young artists from South Brunswick, NJ who have created a following with their clean, mainstream pop/hip-hop sound, comparable to acts such as Black Eyed Peas. They released their debut album,‘The Soul & The Intellect‘ worldwide on Radikal Records on January 7, 2014.
After three school pride anthems that went viral, and three mixtape releases in the past two years garnering attention from their Rutgers University colleagues and fellow college students across the country and beyond, opening for countless acts such as Big Sean, Far East Movement, Jake Miller and more, the boys linked up with Radikal Records to release their debut album.
‘The Soul & The Intellect’ reflects the characters of both Buck and Izee, laidback Buck being the soul of the duo, and methodical Izee, producer behind the entire project, the intellect. Also featured as a vocalist on two tracks off the album is Evangelia, a Rutgers University student. When she’s not studying pre-med, you can catch her performing at the local coffee shops armed with her guitar and powerful voice.
