The entire Van Buren Records collective out of Brockton, Massachusetts has spent the last five years gradually progressing from local powerhouse into a global hip-hop brand. From rapping to acting to modeling, VB’s FELIX! has been an integral piece of this growth. His latest feat is a new pinnacle for the group, and is sure to open some big doors and accelerate their inevitable blow up.
Brent Faiyaz is one of the most well-renowned artists in the world currently, amassing 23 million monthly listeners on Spotify. Last week, he dropped a surprised project called “Larger Than Life”, which battled Taylor Swift for the number one album on Spotify. The most popular track on the album thus far? “Upset” featuring Tommy Richman and none other than FELIX!, which actually passed Taylor Swift for top track on the most popular music streaming app in the world:
Since the feature dropped, FELIX! has eclipsed a million monthly listeners, bringing his music to entirely new audiences across the globe. A huge win for Van Buren and for Massachusetts/New England hip-hop as a whole.
