Greyson Chance is busy majoring in history at the University of Tulsa. When he spoke on the phone with Billboard on Dec. 6, he was hyped up on caffeine and knee-deep in finals.
So, in other words, he is a normal 20-year-old college student. "A lot of artists are going out to the club and having fun, and like, let me tell you, I'm going (crazy) on some Roman history books in the library," he says. Of course, Chance is also a successful performing artist -- one still widely associated with Ellen DeGeneres -- and is premiering new track "Low" today (Dec. 7) exclusively through Billboard.
Chance admits that when he made the decision to attend college, he wasn't sure how much music he'd be able to write anymore, "and I think that was a sad point for me." But he has found the right balance. "Low" was written over the summer in Los Angeles.
