Multi-platinum selling Chicago artist/rapper/songwriter Calbo
The track, which is produced by CZ Beats is the first release for Calboy coming off of an incredible 2019. Profiled as one of Billboard’s 2019 Chartbreakers, it was a banner year for the burgeoning star with his breakout hit “Envy Me” reaching 3x platinum certification by the RIAA and hitting #34 on the Billboard Hot 100. The track has been streamed and viewed nearly 1 billion times. Calboy released his Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records debut project Wildboy, which boasted features from Meek Mill, Young Thug, Lil Durk, Yo Gotti and more. The project is currently being recognized on many year-end “Best of 2019” lists
A self-taught singer and musician, Calboy started making rap music at the age of 12, influenced by the sounds of drill heroes like Lil Durk with poppier fare like Ed Sheeran. As he began to master making his own instrumentals and songs on Pro Tools, Calboy became involved with YOUmedia, the Chicago public arts program with notable alumni like Chance The Rapper. At the age of 16, Calboy’s music began to catch on in Chicago, reaching the ears of G Herbo, who boosted Calboy’s single. In August 2018, Calboy shared the now 3x Platinum “Envy Me,” which became a Billboard Top 40 hit off the strength of a viral dance craze and has now been streamed nearly 1 billion times. Now signed to Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records, and managed by DreamChasers, Calboy is ready to take the next step on the ladder to stardom with the release of his major label debut project Wildboy, which was released in May 2019.
