His first single has been featured in more than 2.7 million TikToks and has more than 7 million streams on Spotify.
Los Angeles rapper Sueco the Child has only one single on Spotify, the hypnotic track "Fast" -- but the pace of his career has been just that. Barely two months since releasing the song, which is the latest hit to pop off on video app TikTok, the 22-year-old has signed to Atlantic Records, Billboard can confirm.
The rapper born William Schultz first uploaded "Fast" to SoundCloud on April 1. The song began building traction on TikTok the next week thanks to Lukas Daley, a friend of Sueco's circle who shared a video using the song with his now more than 383,000 followers on the app.
That video has since been viewed over 20,000 times, while "Fast" has been featured in more than 2.7 million TikToks, with users focusing slo-mo clips around its drawled opening lines -- "Fast/400 on the dash/ Fifty five bills/ Buck fifty for the tax on the bag." Meanwhile, the official Spotify version of "Fast," released May 10, has already topped 7 million streams.
