Locus Telecommunications is “LOVE” Struck

Englewood Cliffs, NJ, February 14, 2007 – Locus Telecommunications, an established, leading provider of prepaid services and one of the nation’s largest prepaid long distance calling card suppliers, has teamed up with Scarlito Entertainment and Latin break-out recording artist, Toby Love, to produce the celebrity endorsed “Toby Love” calling card.

“Being able to differentiate yourself in the entertainment industry is not always easy. How you market yourself is as important as how distinct your music is.” states Edwin Perez, President & CEO of Scarlito Entertainment. “That is why we [Scarlito Entertainment & Toby Love] are excited about this new venture with Locus Telecommunications and view it as an extremely unique opportunity to market to both our core audiences.”

The “Toby Love” card is very unusual. Although it targets key Hispanic countries and offers highly competitive rates to Mexico and the Dominican Republic as well as countries throughout Central and South America, it has the capacity to reach a much wider customer base due to its tie-in with the music industry and the visible popularity of the artist it represents.

“This partnership developed between Scarlito Entertainment and Toby Love has been a significant initiative for Locus." reports JH Choi, VP of Calling Card and Wireless Sales at Locus. “We are pleased with the success of the card in the short time it’s been available and are confident its popularity will remain strong.” Choi adds.

To cater to the growing popularity of calling card use in America and the country’s love for all facets of entertainment, Locus has plans to produce similar celebrity style and special edition feature cards in the future.

About Toby Love
A former member of the award-winning Dominican-American boy band Aventura, vocalist Toby Love is no stranger to the spotlight. Through his 6 year experience with Aventura, Love not only discovered and developed a passion for the traditional Dominican music called bachata, but began re-inventing the style by fusing fundamental elements of it with R&B vocals and hip-hop beats. This new Latin music revolution, dubbed "crunkchata," often features the Bronx, NY-based vocalist singing in Spanish as well as English. Passionate, ambitious and driven, this young artist is not only making a name for himself on the street, but on the Latin Billboard Charts as well. As one of Sony’s hottest new Latin artists, Love released his self-titled album “Toby Love” on Sony Records, in September of 2006 and immediately appeared on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart and Top Heatseekers chart. His Lead single, "Tengo Un Amor," which features the hip-hop/reggaetón duo Rakim & Ken-Y, reached No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart.
