Since 2008, Shwayze and the summer season have become synonymous. With the Billboard Top 20 hits ‘Buzzin” and ‘Corona and Lime,’ people have fallen in love with Shwayze’s breezy melodies and his smooth rhymes. In July of this year, Shwayze will be releasing his next project, appropriately titled King of the Summer.
Shwayze released his self-titled debut album in 2008 through Geffen/Suretone Records, which debuted at #10 on the Billboard Charts and was #3 on Billboard’s Rap Album Chart. The album was the first of many collaborations with songwriter/producer Cisco Adler. The hit single off the album ‘Buzzin,’ gained worldwide popularity and inspired the MTV show of the same name. The hit show documented Shwayze’s comical misadventures as he navigated his way through the music industry and made a name for himself.
Following the success of their first album, Shwayze and Cisco released two more albums together; 2009’s edgy, experimental electro-rock release Let It Beat, which debuted at #1 on the iTunes Chart, and the more contemporary Island In The Sun, which came out in 2011 and debuted at #2 on the iTunes Pop Chart.
In 2013, Shwayze released, Shwayze Summer, which debuted at #8 on the iTunes Hip-Hop chart and the lead single, ‘Love Is Overrated,’ which has over two million streams and continues to grow. His 17-city tour in support of the album sold out some of America’s most popular venues including the legendary Troubadour in Los Angeles, CA.
In addition to a MTV reality show, four full-length albums, and countless tours under his belt, Shwayze launched his independent label, Feel Good Entertainment, in 2009. This will not only allow him the freedom to make the music that he wants but it will also offer up-and-coming artists a chance to realize their dreams as well.
