Adam Aminé Daniel, best known to the world by his stage name Aminé, is a Grammy-nominated rapper, singer, and songwriter originally from Portland, Oregon. Aminé first broke into public consciousness in 2016 with the release of his 6x Platinum single "Caroline," which debuted at number 96 on the US Billboard Hot 100 before eventually peaking at number 11. On the heels of the single's success, Aminé released his debut album Good For You (RIAA certified Gold) and was selected as a XXL Freshman in 2017.
Subsequent releases, 2018's ONEPOINTFIVE and 2020's Limbo, proved that Aminé was far from here today, gone tomorrow star in rap: they were full length releases in which he showcased his pure rapping ability and cemented himself in the current generations of stars in the genre. 2021 saw the release of his most sonically ambitious body of work yet, TWOPOINTFIVE, which found Aminé exploring new musical territory, borrowing from club music and hyperpop in a way that he hadn't fully embraced previously. The video for its lead single "Charmander" was celebrated as one of the best of the year by GQ, Pitchfork, Highsnobiety and more. His success on record has translated to his celebrated live shows, having sold out every international tour on which he's embarked and 2022's The Best Tour Ever Tour seeing him set new high water marks in terms of tickets sold across multiple markets in North America.
Several months into the COVID-19 pandemic, Tai Verdes skyrocketed from his 9-to-5 job at a Verizon store, quickly rising to Billboard's #1 Emerging Artist with his first-ever headline tour selling out in minutes. His debut album TV included several of last year's biggest viral hits in the US -- "Stuck In The Middle" and "A-O-K" -- earning him nearly over a billion streams, #34 on the Billboard Hot 100, and a #12 record at US Pop Radio. Tai has since performed on Jimmy Kimmel and The TODAY Show, as well as Lollapalooza and Madison Square Garden in front of crowds of over 35,000 people, garnering praise from Rolling Stone, Billboard, MTV, NPR, and more.
The 26-year-old may have won the TikTok lottery, but he's playing the long game. And he's playing for keeps. Tai kicked off 2022 with his single "LAst dAy oN EaRTh," his latest equally explosive "sheluvme," and another full US headline tour as he gears up for his HDTV album this fall. "I'm gonna be a problem. I love everything that's happening. But this is not a one song thing, this is a 10-album thing. Time for everyone to see the world in HD."
