MADONNA & EMINEM...REALLY? Isaiah's global popularity as a recording artist initially exploded August 2001 when Midtown Funk, the hit jazz/funk song from LIFE GAMES, hit #15 on MP3.com's overall Top 40, beating out tracks from popular artists such as Eminem, Madonna, Linkin Park, Mariah Carey, Faith Hill, The Offspring and Sum 41. At the time, MP3.com was the world's No. 1 mp3 Internet site (receiving worldwide traffic of over 30 million visitors a month), and throughout late 2001, Isaiah often held spots #1 through #14 on the site's Jazz Top 20. This meant that every single track on LIFE GAMES occupied the site's top chart positions at the same time. The success of LIFE GAMES enabled Isaiah to build The Playground and Fortress Hill Studios, two separate state-of-the-art 24-bit digital recording studios in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Playground is where Isaiah composed, recorded and produced his sophomore album, URBAN PLAYGROUND.
