Born Shamir Alexander in Paterson New Jersey, “Cory North” is quickly becoming an R&B/Pop sensation. Starting in 2014, blending the name of his father (Cory) and being from “up north” he branded the name “Cory North”. Cory’s career debuted on MTV’s series “Top Pop Group” as a member of the group NJ5ive. Known then as “Sha”, North gained a lifetime of experience during the group’s short lived success, traveling and performing with artist such as Omarion. After the group’s disbandment, North reconnected with old friend/producer Remo The Hitmaker (French Montana/50cent) and they birthed the sensational single “The Weekend” which landed regular spins on New York’s Power 105.1. The track gained the attention of fellow Paterson native Fetty Wap, who later joined in on the remix. Cory North recently signed with Y.O.R.K Records in 2016 and released his latest single “Poppin Off”.
