American rapper and singer has released his new single, “Love Me Easy”, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Toosii is known for songs such as “Red Lights”, “Love Cycle”, “Poetic Pain” and “Sapiosexual”, and his debut studio album, Poetic Pain, which peaked at number 17 on the Billboard 200.
Toosii was inspired to try music by both his brother and father and spent a period of time homeless before his career began to further develop. He got his big break in 2019 with the release of the track “Red Lights”, which went on to accrue millions of streams. He then released his Who Dat mixtape on April 30, 2019, which was followed by the 13-track Platinum Heart mixtape on February 7, 2020.
Platinum Heart reached number-one on the Billboard Heatseekers Album chart upon its initial release. The mixtape was later reissued as a 20-track deluxe version.
On September 18, 2020, his third South Coast Music Group-affiliated Poetic Pain mixtape was released as his first project on Capitol Records. His signing to Capitol was made on September 30, by Chris Turner (A&R) following the release of his official video for “Love Cycle” with Summer Walker.
Toosii’s project Poetic Pain debuted at number 17 on the Billboard 200 chart in September 2020 and features the RIAA certification Gold single “Love Cycle” with Summer Walker.
On May 7, 2021, Toosii released his seventh mixtape, Thank You for Believing. The tape’s title shows “gratitude to those that had faith in him and helped get him where he is today”. It contains 13 tracks, and features Mulatto, Key Glock, and DaBaby. In 2021, he was featured on the XXL Freshman Class.
Toosii signed to South Coast Music Group in early 2020, the same label that rose fellow North Carolina rapper DaBaby to prominence. He is known for songs such as Red Lights, Love Cycle, Poetic Pain, and Sapiosexual.
He made a name for himself independently, releasing projects such as Label Me Diverse, Hell on Earth, and Why Not Now all in 2017. In the same year, he flew to LA with little money. During his almost month long stay, he met a record executive but didn’t sign. He then released the mixtapes Who Dat and My Shit Now. After signing to South Coast, he released the mixtape Platinum Heart in February 2020, following it up with Poetic Pain in September.
Toosii doesn’t do many features, but he has collaborated with artists like Aminé, DaBaby, and Summer Walker.
