The rapid rise of stardom for Philadelphia's smoothest -- Pink Sweat$ is the result of a slow climb. His soothing soul & R&B melodies propelled Sweat$ as one of the most unique new artists of 2019. After 7 years of honing his craft as a songwriter and producer, Pink launched his solo career in July 2018. The benefits of working behind the scenes afforded Sweat$ to take full advantage of the digital success of his debut EP, Volume 1. Released in November 2018, it has already surpassed 100 million streams on Spotify.
“I’m not trying to be different — I am different,” Pink Sweat$ says. “I never talk about sex in an explicit way; that’s intentional. I never degrade women; that’s intentional. I don’t have a [fancy] haircut. I wear pink. That’s not typical for the history of R&B.” - Pink Sweat$ (Rolling Stone Magazine, March 2019)
Sweat$ recently finished the final leg of the 13-date Pink Beginnings Tour Part 2 promoting his follow-up EP, Volume 2, which released in March 2019. On September 11, 2019 he graced the stage at A&R Music Bar in Columbus, OH. We happened to run into him and his team the next morning at Dk Diner in Grandview.
