A native of Los Angeles, California’s Hollywood region, Blackbear — born Matthew Musto — was known as a fledgling, rock-leaning singer/songwriter until he co-wrote Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend,” a number-two hit on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2012. Around the same time, he reinvented himself as a rapper and more R&B-oriented singer through the self-released ‘Sex,’ on which he was joined by fellow “Boyfriend” co-writer Mike Posner, James Blake, and Maejor Ali. He also appeared on MGK’s Lace Up and his EPs Drink Bleach and Cashmere Noose both arrived in 2016.
Blackbear is one of the industry’s most captivating producers and songwriters, and the force behind an impressive array of chart-topping hits across multiple genres, charts and radio formats – both from his solo releases, along with his extensive collaborations in the rap, R&B and pop worlds; the most recent of which includes Mansionz; his creative partnership with Mike Posner.
Blackbear has also worked with a wide assortment of other musicians, with everyone from Justin Bieber, G Eazy, Mike Posner, James Blake, Maejor Ali, Machine Gun Kelly and Mod Sun, to Rivers Cuomo, Childish Gambino, Pharrell Williams, and Linkin Park.
Elhae began to realize his talents at a young age, and through perfecting these talents, he unearthed his love and deep passion for music. Much of Elhae’s early experiences with music stem from his participating in his church choir, alongside his mother. Elhae quickly went from performing choir solo’s and learning to play piano, to composing his own songs, which eventually spawned into what we see in Elhae today… a musical genius who knows no boundaries in his art.
Today, Elhae is on the brink of becoming a young breakthrough artist that has so much to offer music, and the music business itself. But whats most important to Elhae is his philosophy on life by offering an undeniable truth in that “Every Life Has An Ending” (ELHAE). To Elhae, this means that we only live once! So while we’re here, it’s best that we all live life to our fullest potential by being ourselves, working hard and following our hearts!
