Critical Praise for Eric Bellinger:

“Eric Bellinger is an up-and-coming R&B singer who has tons of talent and could make some waves very soon.”  – Complex

“Eric Bellinger—the Los Angeles singer/songwriter whose single with Problem, “I Don’t Want Her,” made waves last year—fits somewhere between Ty Dolla $ign’s of-the-moment snap and Ne-Yo’s oh-so-earnest mid-’00s R&B.” – FADER

“If you’re single or trying to find signs of love in the world, Eric Bellinger will make you believe in love again.” – Singersroom

The Video: 

Effortlessly straddling the worlds of Hip-Hop and R&B, Eric Bellinger mixes his smooth vocal stylings, street lyricism, and songwriting talent to create a signature style. In his latest video, “G.O.A.T./In My Prime,” Eric gets ambitious, combining two standout tracks from his latest EP Eric B. For President: Term 1 into a single video with a sustained narrative about Eric Bellinger’s campaign for political office. In “G.O.A.T.,” Eric lays low in a hotel with featured rapper ARoc while he plans an operation against his political opponent, using a sexy saboteur to create a scandal and catapult Eric into office. The video smoothly transitions into “In My Prime” featuring Phil ADÉ,  and a celebratory look inside Eric’s victory party, which features a cameo from Keri Hilson and Eric’s Chief of Staff Columbus Short. Premiered today by Billboard, “G.O.A.T./In My Prime” follows Eric’s cover of Drake’s “Fake Love,” in which the singer strips the recent hit down to its essence, flowing over gently plucked acoustic guitars.

A rising young R&B talent with silky vocals and prodigious skills as an emcee, Eric Bellinger returned to the national forefront with his mixtape Eric B. For President: Term 1An accomplished songwriter with a Grammy win and an endorsement from Barack Obama, the Compton-born artist named the mixtape as a salute to “Eric B. Is President,” the classic track from Eric B. & Rakim‘s iconic Paid in Full. With more than 10 million views on YouTube for his various tracks, Eric Bellinger is a true hitmaker as both a singer and songwriter, winning a Grammy for writing songs on Chris Brown‘s F.A.M.E. and earning a radio hit with “Valet,” featuring 2 Chainz and Fetty Wap. Eric B. For President: Term 1 is currently available on iTunes and Spotify.

Eric Bellinger Background: 

Over the last 6 years, Eric Bellinger has become one of the music industry’s most sought after songwriters while also proving himself to be equally talented as a singer and a rapper. Seamlessly fusing smooth and retro R&B melodies with edgy hip-hop, Bellinger, the grandson of “Rockin Robin” songwriter Bobby Day, has earned the reputation as quick yet intuitive songwriter. Having collaborated with Grammy-winning songwriter/producers J.R. Rotem and Rodney Jerkins, the Compton, California native has quickly racked up more than 80 song placements just in the last two years alone, writing for Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Usher, Trey Songz, Jennifer Hudson, The Game, and Janelle Monae. He has scored hits with his songwriting for Justin Bieber (“Right Here,”) Usher (“Lemme See,”) and Chris Brown (“Fine China.”) His work with Brown, specifically his contributions to Brown’s album F.A.M.E., also earned him a Grammy award. Following 10 years of being in singing groups, the former church boy singer formally stepped out as a solo artist in 2013, steadily churning out a series of well-regarded mixtapes. Working with artists including 2 Chainz, Kid Ink, Mya, Ty Dolla $ign, and Sage the Gemini, Bellinger quickly found success as a solo artist, selling out his U.K. tour, getting his independent label YFS distributed by Lyor Cohen’s 300 Entertainment, and amassing over 10 million views on YouTube. Bellinger has come full circle as a triple-threat talent, simultaneously forging a burgeoning solo career while further cementing his reputation as one of R&B and pop music’s top go-to writers.
