Travis McCoy is de frontman van de Gym Class Heroes, die in 2007 met Cupid’s Chokehold een eerste hit in de Top 40 scoren. Vier jaar later wordt Stereo Hearts (samen met Adam Levine) hun grootste hit.

McCoy scoort ondertussen ook solo hits. Van zijn debuutalbum Lazarus, dat in 2010 verschijnt, wordt Billionaire (samen met Bruno Mars) zijn eerste hit in de Top 40. De single staat één week bovenaan de lijst. Ook We’ll Be Alright en Higher (met Taio Cruz) bereiken de Top 40, maar zijn minder succesvol.

In 2014 staat Travie McCoy samen met Jason Mraz voor de vierde keer in de Top 40. De single, die eerder Alarmschijf werd, staat slechts twee weken in de lijst en wordt daarmee de minst succesvolle Alarmschijf die ooit in de Top 40 heeft gestaan.
Later dat jaar levert McCoy een bijdrage aan het vierde album van Olly Murs met de track Wrapped Up.

Songtekst

[Bruno Mars]
I wanna be a billionaire so fucking bad.
Buy all of the things I never had.
Uh.
I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine,
Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen.

[Chorus]
Oh every time I close my eyes,
I see my name in shiny lights.
Yeahh, a different city every night.
Oh I - I swear, the world better prepare for when I'm a billionaire.

[Travis "Travie" McCoy]
Yeah I would have a show like Oprah.
I would be the host of, everyday Christmas.
Give Travie a wish list.
I'd probably pull an Angelina and Brad Pitt,
And adopt a bunch of babies that ain't never had sh-t!
Give away a few Mercedes like here lady have this,
And last but not least grant somebody their last wish.
Its been a couple months since I've single so,
You can call me Travie Claus minus the Ho Ho.
Haa, get it?
I'd probably visit where Katrina hit,
And damn sure do a lot more than FEMA did.
Yeah can't forget about me stupid,
Everywhere I go Imma have my own theme music.

[Chorus]
Oh every time I close my eyes,
(what chu see, what chu see bro?)
I see my name in shiny lights.
(uh huh).
Ahh, yeah yeah.
(what else?)
A different city every night.
Oh I - I swear, the world better prepare..
(for what?)
For when I'm a billionaire.
(yeah!)
Oh oooh oh oooh,
(Sing it)
When I'm a Billionaire.
Oh oooh oh oooh.
(let's go)

[Travis "Travie" McCoy]
I'll be playing basketball with the President,
Dunking on his delegates.
Then I'll compliment him on his political etiquette.
Toss a couple milli in the air just for the heck of it.
But keep the fives, twentys, tens in bins completely separate.
Yeah I'll be in a whole new tax bracket.
We in recession but let me take a crack at it.
I'll probably take whatevers left and just split it up.
So everybody that I love can have a couple bucks.
And, not a single tummy around me would know what hungry was.
Eating good, sleeping soundly.
I know we all have a similar dream.
Go in your pocket, pull out your wallet, put it in the air and sing..

[Bruno Mars]
I wanna be a billionaire so fucking' bad.
(So bad)
Buy all of the things I never had.
(Buy everything, haa)
Uh.
I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine.
Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen.
(What up Oprah? Haaa!)

[Chorus]
Oh every time I close my eyes,
(what chu see, what chu see bro?)
I see my name in shiny lights.
(uh huh).
Ahh, yeah yeah.
(what else?)
A different city every night.
Oh (yeah yeah yeah)
I - I swear, the world better prepare..
(for what?)
For when I'm a billionaire.
(yeah!)
Oh oooh oh oooh,
(Sing it)
When I'm a Billionaire.
Oh oooh oh oooh.

I wanna be a billionaire
(uh huh)
so fucking' bad!
