Since first crashing onto the scene in the mid-2010s, multi-platinum-selling singer/songwriter/producer blackbear has continually turned heads and defied all expectation, effortlessly mixing his hedonistic hell-raising and maniac humor with deeply heartfelt emotion. Delivering an outrageously catchy hybrid of pop and hip-hop and alt-R&B, the L.A.-based artist has put out four studio albums in the last five years alone, including 2017’s gold-certified digital druglord and 2019’s magnum opus ANONYMOUS (a #36 hit on the Billboard 200). Hyper-creative and massively prolific, he’s also collaborated with the likes of Pharrell Williams and Linkin Park, and brought his top-notch songwriting skills to Justin Bieber’s six-times-platinum single “Boyfriend.” And in his unflinching honesty about his own demons and depression, blackbear creates a powerful sense of solidarity—ultimately moving forward with his longtime mission of “inspiring everyone to be more unapologetic about who they are.”
Showing no signs of slowing down, blackbear recently joined in a series of exciting collaborations, including Marshmello’s epic 2019 single “Tongue Tied” (also featuring Yungblud). Additionally, he is set to return with a new body of work this year, that pushes his brilliantly warped artistry even further. The first glimpse at his latest metamorphosis, the fantastically zeitgeisty anthem “hot girl bummer” dropped in August 2019, reaching #2 at Top 40 radio and earning double-platinum certification from the RIAA—eventually emerging as blackbear’s most successful smash since 2017’s double-platinum “do re mi.” blackbear’s fifth studio album everything means nothing is available everywhere now via Beartrap/Alamo/Interscope Records/Universal Music Canada.
