“I had a lot of fun performing these songs with my best friend Omer, can’t wait for the world to see everything we’ve been workin on,” explains 24kGoldn.
“There’s no doubt that at just 19 years old 24kGoldn has made massive waves in the music industry with the success of his biggest hit ‘Mood’. While being at the top of the list in multiple genre categories, the singer/rapper has proven that the idea of being confined to one single genre just doesn’t exist anymore. With his creativity and distinct sound, 24kGoldn is bound to have a vibe for everyone. We’re so excited to have him as part of our DSCVR ‘Artist To Watch’ roster and we’re certain that there will be much more success for him in 2021.” – Amberliz Mateo, Associate Manager, Music Programming

This is so much more than just a list for us; capturing performances from these artists and providing video content for fans to engage with on a global scale.” says JP Evangelista, SVP of Content, Programming & Marketing, “The health of our team and artists alike is of utmost importance to Vevo. We were pleased to be able to shoot and deliver these performances with proper safety protocols in place, despite obvious challenges.

About 24kGoldnNot many college freshmen sign a record deal in their first semester, but 24kGoldn has never been average. The San Francisco native always excelled in school, eventually earning himself a full-ride scholarship to attend business school at USC. While he was originally planning on a degree, when he was presented with the opportunity to seriously pursue music, he knew he had to take it. “It’s like I was getting drafted into the NBA or something,” he says. “We gotta go now.” Committing to music has proven to be the right decision, with his 2019 single “VALENTINO” becoming certified platinum in April 2020, and July’s “Mood” racking up over 300 million streams.
