Vevo’s Artists To Watch 2023 Series Continues With Breakthrough Rapper White Armani delivering a performance of her hit song “BILLIE EILISH”.
Armani White said, “VEVO Artist To Watch used to be one of those platforms that almost always calls the next stars early. Being part of it is an honor and a challenge that I accept with gratitude.
Jordan Ferree, Manager, Artist & Label Relations, adds: “Having spent the past few years perfecting his craft, Armani White has shown the world exactly what a dynamic artist looks like. His lively storytelling is earnest and energetic. Whether he’s freestyling while having his hair braided or shining on our DSCVR stage, he leaves nothing on the table. The rising MC has lived many lives, and none without adversity. We can’t wait to see which one unfolds as it becomes the star it was destined to be.
White – the charismatic West Philly rapper who signed with Def Jam in August – amassed more than 45 million streams in the first eight weeks of “BILLIE EILISH” being released worldwide. In August, Armani released the High Voltage follow-up single and video, “DALLAS DIAMOND.”
“BILLIE EILISH.” – a playful and energetic tribute to the pop singer’s stylish videos, set to a clever sample of NORE and the Neptunes’ classic “Nothin'” – broke the 45 million stream milestone last week, hitting No. 1 on Soundcloud in the United States and No. 2 worldwide.
The track was #2 most added on urban radio shortly after its release, amassing 46 stations on impact, and was featured as YouTube artist On The Rise – Trending. The track has truly gone viral socially, inspiring billions of views on TikTok and earning a big co-sign from Tom Brady, who posted the track to his Instagram.
Armani always knew he wanted to rap. At age 11, he and a friend started using trial versions of Mixcraft to compose their first tracks. After winning Class Clown and Most Likely to Be Heard a Mile Away in his high school yearbook, the idea of a rap career quickly crystallized.
