Listen: PLAYA Might Be R&B's Next Big Thing

PLAYA stepped into the spotlight in 2017. Growing up, he never thought he'd get into music. He had an NBA dream of hoping to become the next big thing in basketball, so he spent most of his time playing every sport, mostly ball. If not, he'd work hard to get his business degree. But, during high school, everything changed.

He was introduced to music in high school, supporting his friend, Mauriez, who rapped. Every day at school, he would go to the studio to support him and even help pass out CDs. After a while, he started to learn and embrace the music culture. However, at that time, Mauriez eventually stopped recording music for a while. So he was left with himself and the passion for learning more about music and decided to go to the studio alone. Since then, he started recording and creating his songs and always left an open verse for Mauriez to finish. Little did they know, it was the start of their group, Top Floor.

Early in their career as Top Floor, they had talks with Suge Knight, a collab with artists like Kap G, and pop artists like Sexton. In 2017, they had a hit single, "Same Cloth," which got over a million views on YouTube and gained recognition from famous artists like Snoop Dogg, and athletes such as Kevin Garnett and Glen Davis on TNT.

Although Top Floor got their big break for a viral hit single, the rest of the journey wasn't easy. They have been taken advantage of by their lack of knowledge of the business. And worse, things took a turn when one of their group members was detained by the law last year. Because of this, PLAYA was determined to continue what they do and carry the torch with his music.

"I want to keep his name alive, our brand name alive, and make sure he comes home to the life we manifested for ourselves," PLAYA says. Fast forward to today, he released his hit single, "Slow For Me," featuring Sequence Clark that is undeniably a Billboard chart-topping hit.

Aside from making music, PLAYA has also been writing films and directing his own music videos. This only proves his creativity and versatility, adding to his immense talent in music. Aside from everyone rooting for him to leap to stardom, people love PLAYA because of his relatable music, definitely something you want to listen to 20x, no joking.

"I want songs to last forever, no matter how old it is. I want people to get the same feeling as they did when they first heard it. I've written R&B records for you to sing to your loved ones and also real-life situations that we all go through," he explains.

With this powerful comeback, there isn't any reason he shouldn't be a Billboard chart staple for the foreseeable future.
