Atlanta-based hip-hop artist MadeinTYO is the winner of Musical.ly’s #NextWaveMarch for his song “Skateboard P,” featuring Big Sean.

The social-networking app that allows users to share videos while lip-syncing to popular songs reported that there were more than 861,000 videos created to the 15 #NextWaveMarch finalists, with an accumulation of more than 193 million views on those videos.

Last month’s #NextWaveFebruary winner was Marian Hill’s “Down.”

MadeinTYO, who grew up in Tokyo, Japan, first launched with an instrumental EP in 2015 titled Yokosuka Station. The following year, his single “Uber Everywhere” hit the Billboard Hot 100 and launched him to national success. His latest mixtape, Thank You, Mr. Tokyo, was released in August 2016.
