Palm Dreams is more than just a dream the local music scene has been waiting for; it’s proof that when given the opportunity, a young creative mind has the ability to show the world what one is capable of doing beyond society’s expectations. James Reid for one has definitely broken barriers with his self-written, self-produced offering, and he’s only getting started.

On Monday (Jul. 31), Reid announced on Twitter that “Cool Down,” the carrier single off his latest record, has reached 1 million hits on YouTube. Fans congratulated the actor-singer, spreading the news online as they eagerly await for word regarding physical copies of the album and what his next single would be.

Palm Dreams was released on July 8th.
