MORE ON PRINCE CHARLEZ
Prince Charlez is an established Los Angeles based singer/songwriter who was raised in Compton, California during the gangster rap boom of the ‘90s. As an introverted preteen who witnessed firsthand music’s response to the drugs and police brutality in the streets, Charlez spent most of his time at home, writing songs and harmonizing alongside some of his favorite artists - unknowingly, many of who he would later go on to work with. Prince Charlez studied dance at the Debbie Allen Dance Academy, and began a modeling career in Milan before catching his first break as a songwriter, when Red One asked him to write a song for Usher, “More”. Charlez would later go on to write for other established artists such as Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, and Rihanna (Charlez wrote “Needed Me,” the longest running hit of her career) among others. Finally, in December of 2016, eager to showcase his talents as a singer and performer as well as a songwriter, Prince Charlez teamed up with Drumma Boy to release his debut Mixtape, Black And Gold. His unique, raw, and unabashed approach is a refreshing reminder that the future of contemporary urban songwriting doesn't have to be formulaic.
