Eamon Doyle professionally known as Eamon, is an American pop rap, doo-wop, and hip hop singer and songwriter. He is best known for his hit single, "Fuck It (I Don't Want You Back)".

Early years

Eamon was born in Staten Island, New York. He's of Italian and Irish descent. His father was a member of a doo wop group. He began singing at age nine and touring and performing with his fathers group at the same age. At fifteen he caught the attention of songwriter/producer Milk Dee who had worked with musicians such as MC Lyte, Janet Jackson, and Mary J. Blige. Dee and his co-producer Mark Passy helped refine Eamon's sound. Eamon was eventually signed to Jive Records.

Music career

Eamon's debut single, "Fuck It (I Don't Want You Back)" immediately caught the attention of urban, rhythmic, and pop radio stations when it was released in the U.S. in late 2003 due to its stripped down production and un-edited profanities about an ex-lover who was two-timing the singer. Jive fast tracked the release of a music video for the song and commissioned an album for release in early 2004. The single reached the top 20 of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, and the popularity of the song helped his album, "I Don't Want You Back," debut in the top 10 of the U.S. Billboard 200. The success of the song prompted Jive to release the song internationally where it reached number-one in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, the Netherlands and Sweden. In Italy his single was such a big hit that he sang an Italian version, called "Solo".The success of the single and the controversial nature of its lyrics prompted production of an answer single, "F.U.R.B. (Fuck You Right Back)", by unknown female singer Frankee who had claimed to be Eamon's ex-girlfriend (which Eamon denied). [ [http://www.contactmusic.com/new/xmlfeed.nsf/mndwebpages/eamon.%20i%20have%20never%20dated%20frankee "ContactMusic.com" - Eamon have never dated Frankee] ] The song also earned Eamon a Guinness World Record for "the most expletives in a #1 song".

After the success of "Fuck It" off his first album, Eamon released a second single, "I Love Them Ho's (Ho-wop)." The song performed well on the charts but not like the smash hit "Fuck it". "I love them Ho's (Ho-Wop) also had a remix and video featuring fellow Staten Island resident Wu-Tang Clan's Ghostface Killah. In return Eamon appeared on Ghostface's album "More Fish"

Eamon's second album, "Love & Pain," was initially scheduled to be released in the United States on August 1, 2006, but the domestic release was canceled for reasons not disclosed by Jive Records.
