Belly has amassed over 1 billion streams as an artist, while in combination with his creations as a songwriter / composer he has reached the milestone of 6 billion streams.

In addition to the eight-time platinum "Blinding Lights", Belly has co-written many songs from The Weeknd's "Beauty Behind The Madness" (2015), such as "The Hills" which is one of the rare occasions. He is also known for his collaboration with The Weeknd on the platinum single "Might Not", which was released shortly after joining The Weeknd's XO Records.

Belly has also co-written the song "6 Inch" from Beyoncé's album "Lemonade" (2016) which received rave reviews and "Love Me Harder" (2014) by Ariana Grande, while he has also appeared in the remix for "No Limit "by G-Eazy and" Double Up "by Nipsey Hussle.

In recent years, Belly's willingness to share with the public the battles he has fought over his mental and physical health has allowed him to develop both personally and personally.

With the album "See You Next Wednesday" an ode to director John Landis, Belly returns stronger, smarter and stronger than ever.
