Brown has produced songs for Monica, 2 Chainz, Pitbull and more. He released his debut single, a country-rap-fused hit called “The Git Up,” last year, which quickly went viral thanks to its fun dance challenge.

“Honestly, to see people doing my dance and seeing the joy it brings to people is just so magical to me,” he told ET last fall when sitting down with Ciara for an Artist x Artist interview. “It’s something that you can’t calculate. Every time I wake up and I click on a video, it’s a new dance, somebody else doin’ it. Cops, firefighters, older people, kids. Kids taking their first crawls and steps to it!”

“That’s godly,” he added. “It’s one of those moments I think I’ll never fully grasp … it’s too big for my mind to wrap around.”
