Acclaimed rapper G-EAZY has released his sophomore album, ‘When It’s Dark Out‘, and is on course to outsell his contemporaries Rick Ross and Kid Cudi in his first week. With projected sales of 120-130K domestically. Prior to its release, G-Eazy had premiered ‘Me, Myself & I’ with Bebe Rexha, a single off of the album. As well as releasing an official album trailer for his fans. Whilst in London, G-Eazy held a intimate listening session at Birthdays, performing to a packed crowd with BBC Radio 1Xtra’s DJ Semtex as support. This all follows on from when G-Eazy was last in London and performed at his sold out headline show back in May. Fans won’t have to wait that long to see G-Eazy live again, as of January he will embark on his international tour in support of When It’s Dark Out with special guest A$AP Ferg.
With cinematic, personal storytelling and immersive, hard-hitting and sweeping productions, ‘When It’s Dark Out’ is easily the most impressive and accomplished work to date for the rising artist. Once again featuring production work from G-Eazy himself and long time collaborator Christoph Anderson, Boi-1da, Southside, DJ Spinz, Kane Beatz, and Remo, among others, lend their genius across the musical spectrum of the project.
Featured artists include international stars such as Big Sean and Chris Brown. Other producers include Michael Keenan who worked on future single ‘Me, Myself & I’ (set to impact early 2016) and features a soaring chorus by rising singer-songwriter Bebe Rexha (Eminem and Rihanna’s – Monster).
When It’s Dark Out comes fresh off the heels of G-Eazy’s Billboard chart topping debut album, These Things Happen, which was released last year to critical acclaim. The freshman album peaked at the #3 position on both the Billboard 200 and Top Digital Album Charts, and bowed at #1 on the R&B/Hip Hop Chart and Top Rap Albums Chart. Between the album and singles, G-Eazy’s past work has also amassed well over 50 million streams on Spotify. With the album still charting a year and a half later, G-Eazy’s accomplishments have not gone unnoticed earning praise from the likes of The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork and Billboard.
Known for his incredible skills as a live performer, G-Eazy has been called by USA Today one of the best and biggest Hip Hop touring acts on the college circuit. After a sold out world tour, this summer he played a slew of the biggest music festivals across North American and Europe, from Outside Lands to Roskilde, Wireless Festivals, night closing sets at Lollapalooza and Bonaroo, and most recently Austin City Limits.
G-Eazy currently features on the House Of Fraser Christmas TV advert, appearing on the track ‘You Don’t Own Me’ by Grace.
