MP3: Tommy Brown ft. Travi$ Scott & Eric Bellinger – “Trippin’ On Me” (Prod. by Tommy Brown)
Multi-Platinum Producer For Ariana Grande, T.I., Meek Mill Stays Behind the Boards, Also Steps To Mic On New Single, Premiere via The FADER
Multi-platinum producer Tommy Brown remains behind the boards, also steps to the mic on his contagious debut single, “Trippin’ On Me,” which features Travi$ Scott and Eric Bellinger, and was premiered by The FADER. Earlier this month, Tommy Brown was spotlighted in the Pittsburgh City Paper for his work on Grammy-nominated albums by Ariana Grande and Chris Brown.
“Trippin’ On Me” shows the trio’s take on girls, honesty, and trust, though anyone can chime along to the catchy hook. Along with producing the track, Tommy Brown raps the opening verse and harmonizes on the song’s chorus, getting listeners to think about complications around trust issues in relationships. Brown previously worked with Travi$ Scott on GOOD Music’s “Sin City,” a song that they co-produced, and was a primary contributor to the production on Eric Bellinger’s early work. “Being around them both early in their career and knowing they were both artists starting from ground zero, focused on what they were doing, but coming from opposite worlds, I thought it would be cool to bring those two together and work on an idea that would mess people up,” Tommy Brown tells The FADER.
In addition to working with the aforementioned Ariana Grande and Chris Brown (“Drunk Texting”), Tommy Brown has produced records for T.I. (“New National Anthem,” “Stay”), 2 Chainz (“36”), Meek Mill (“When You’re Around), B.o.B. (“Lean On Me”), and Black Eyed Peas (“Just Can’t Get Enough”), Tommy Brown is ready to take on a new branch in his musical career while still staking his claim as one of today’s top producers and most influential tastemakers. “Some people are so creative they don’t even know how to get it down,” Tommy Brown explains. “I’m somebody that an artist could bring their ideas to and we’ll take it to the limits, to a place you never thought it could go.”

Tommy Brown Background:
Tommy Brown wants to rewrite the music industry rulebook. The super producer, who has supplied marquee artists like Ariana Grande, T.I. and Chris Brown with boundary-shifting tracks, spent the past few years surveying the scene and witnessed how difficult it can be for up-and-comers to connect with more notable writers and producers. His solution: create the Facebook of the music community, where newer musicians can pay various price points and access exclusive instrumentals and get their music heard by a wider audience. In 2012, he signed with BMI, which in turn led to an independent production deal with Sony ATV. Since then, he’s become one of the hottest producers across genres, helming T.I.’s “New National Anthem,” G.O.O.D. Music’s “Sin City,” and four songs on Grande’s chart-topping sophomore album My Everything.
