Atlanta rapper Russ announced the continuation of his North American trek with the “I See You Tour Part 2.” The 13 new dates will kick off October 19, including a stop in San Antonio before wrapping up November 15 in Seattle.
On Wednesday, October 31 the “Losin’ Control” singer will perform a set at the AT&T Center.
We usually don’t go into Wikipedia-type info when we talk about artists, but for how young this dude is, Russ has accomplished a lot.
The Atlanta-based hip-hop recording artist had breakout success over the past year, with his self-penned debut album, There's Really A Wolf, released 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.
Kinda gnarly stuff, and if you haven’t made your Halloween plans yet, this probably will be a show you want to be at.
