blackbear first had success as a songwriter, writing Justin Bieber’s Boyfriend, which went on to be a hit. Soon, he was making his own EP with the help of collaborators like James Blake and Maejor Ali.

In the intervening years, blackbear has wriiten extensively, releasing a full-length album, Deadroses, in 2015. It featured G-Eazy and a few songs on it became streaming hits. Its follow-up, 2016’s Drink Bleach, built up more momentum as tracks like NYLA snuck onto soundtracks and blackbear started touring with Tinashe.

Every since, blackbear has been working with Linkin Park, and touring with Fall Out Boy. He’s about to hit the big time and you need to be at the Academy to witness it.
