Tai Verdes

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.”
