The Kid LAROI is still a kid, but he’s had the kind of year most grown-ups can only dream of.
The Australian artist (real name Charlton Howard) also hit No. 1 on the singles and albums charts in his homeland, busting records in the process.
Along with the success, full-blown recognition from the music industry. He snagged his first APRA Music Award (for best newcomer), the National Indigenous Music Award for best artist, and he’s shortlisted for best newcomer at the 2022 Grammy Awards.
LAROI closed the show with a rocking performance of “Stay,” shot live with a bouncing crowd and full band at L.A.’s Viper Room.
According to organizers, it’s LAROI’s “final recorded performance before his hiatus.”
