The Atlanta-based hip-hop recording artist, Russ, had breakout success over the past year, with his self-penned debut album, There’s Really A Wolf, released by Russ My Way Inc./Columbia Records in May 2017. Entering the Billboard 200 chart at No. 7, reaching the top five on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop chart, the album went certified platinum by the RIAA in the U.S in 2018.
The album served as the perfect showcase for his DIY approach with all 20 songs having been written, produced, mixed, mastered and engineered entirely by himself.
It includes Russ’s first two Hot 100 hits, the double-platinum certified “What They Want” and double-platinum success “Losin Control.” The popularity of the album helped Russ surpass 1.1 billion audio streams in the U.S. in 2017, making him one of Nielsen Music’s 30 most streamed artists of the year.
This placed him above a number of superstar acts, including Beyoncé, Coldplay and Childish Gambino. His strong vision and self-belief has resulted in six sold out tours, over 676 million YouTube views, 10 million monthly listeners on Spotify, and over 2 billion plays of his vast catalog, all sung word for word by his dedicated fan base at sold-out shows across the globe.
