Artiestinformatie

Geboortedatum   24-05-1989
Land   Verenigde Staten

Gerald Earl Gillum maakt, als hij studeert aan de Universiteit van New Orleans, al verschillende nummers. Al snel brengt het hem in contact met artiesten als Lil B en The Cataracs en wordt hij lid van het hiphop-collectief The Bay Boyz. Later mag hij de voorprogramma’s verzorgen van Lil Wayne en Snoop Dogg.


Via Myspace wordt zijn mixtape, The Endless Summer, meer dan 400.000 keer aangeklikt. Daarop staat ook zijn remake van Runaround Sue, origineel van Dion DiMucci uit 1961, dat op YouTube meer dan vier miljoen keer wordt bekeken.

In de zomer van 2014 verschijnt zijn debuutalbum These Things Happen, dat op de derde plaats van de Amerikaanse albumlijst weet te komen.

Eind 2015 scoort hij ook met de opvolger, When It’s Dark Out, een succes. Van dat album worden Me, Myself & I (met Bebe Rexha) zijn eerste Top 40-hits en wordt ook You Don’t Know Me (bij ons bekend via Zeg Maar Niets Meer van André Hazes) snel opgepikt. In 2016 werkt de rapper mee aan Make Me, de track waarmee Britney Spears haar rentree maakt. Ook is hij te horen op You & Me van Marc E. Bassy.

Voor de soundtrack bij Fast And Furious 8 levert hij in 2017 het nummer Good Life af. Op 15 december verschijnt zijn derde studioalbum The Beautiful & Damned met daarop de single Him & I die hij met Halsey maakte.


Songtekst

Ooh
It's just me, myself and I
Solo ride until I die
Cause I got me for life (Yeah)
Ooh
I don't need a hand to hold
Even when the night is cold
I got that fire in my soul

And as far as I can see, I just need privacy
Plus a whole lot of tree, fuck all this modesty
I just need space to do me
Give the world what they're tryna see
A Stella Maxwell right beside of me
A Ferrari, I'm buyin' three
A closet of Saint Laurent, get what I want when I want
Cause this hunger is driving me, yeah

I just need to be alone, I just need to be at home
Understand what I'm speaking on
If time is money I need a loan
But regardless I'll always keep keepin' on
Fuck fake friends
We don't take L's, we just make M's
While y'all follow, we just make trends
I'm right back to work when that break ends (Yeah)

Ooh
It's just me, myself and I
Solo ride until I die
Cause I got me for life (Got me for life, yeah)
Ooh
I don't need a hand to hold
Even when the night is cold
I got that fire in my soul

I don't need anything
To get me through the night
Except the beat that's in my heart
And it's keeping me alive (Keeps me alive)
I don't need anything
To make me satisfied (You know)
Cause the music fills me good
And it gets me every time (Yeah)

And I don't like talking to strangers
So get the fuck off me, I'm anxious
I'm tryna be cool, but I may just go ape shit
Say: fuck y'all to all of y'all faces
It changes though now that I'm famous
Everyone knows how this lifestyle is dangerous
But I love it, the rush is amazing
Celebrate nightly and everyone rages

I found how to cope with my anger
so I'm swimming in money. swimming in liquor
My liver is muddy, but it's all good
I'm still sippin' this bubbly, this shit is lovely
This shit ain't random, I didn't get lucky
Made it right here, cause I'm sick with it, cuddy
They all take the money for granted, but don't want to work for it
Tell me now: isn't it funny

Ooh
It's just me, myself and I
Solo ride until I die
Cause I got me for life (Got me for life, yeah)
Ooh
I don't need a hand to hold
Even when the night is cold
I got that fire in my soul

I don't need anything
To get me through the night
Except the beat that's in my heart
And it's keeping me alive (Keeps me alive)
I don't need anything
To make me satisfied (You know)
Cause the music fills me good
And it gets me every time

Like ba-ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Cause the music fills me good
And it gets me every time

Yeah, lonely nights I laid awake
Pray to Lord, my soul to take
My heart's become too cold to break
Know I'm great, but I'm broke as hell
Having dreams that I'm folding cake
All my life I've been told to wait
But I'mma get it now
Yeah, it's no debate (Yeah)

Ooh
It's just me, myself and I
Solo ride until I die
Cause I got me for life (Got me for life, yeah)
Ooh
I don't need a hand to hold
Even when the night is cold
I got that fire in my soul

I don't need anything
To get me through the night
Except the beat that's in my heart
And it's keeping me alive (Keeps me alive)
I don't need anything
To make me satisfied (You know)
Cause the music fills me good
And it gets me every time

Like ba-ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Cause the music fills me good
And it gets me every time
