Mike Posner biography

Michael Robert Henrion "Mike" Posner (/ˈpoʊznər/ pohz-nər;[4] born February 12, 1988) is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer.[5] Posner released his debut album, 31 Minutes to Takeoff, on August 10, 2010. The album includes the US Billboard Hot 100 top 10 single "Cooler than Me" as well as the top 20 single "Please Don't Go". In 2016, a remix of his 2015 single "I Took a Pill in Ibiza" peaked in the top ten on the charts in twenty seven countries around the world, including hitting number one in many and the top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States. He is also known for co-writing "Sugar" by Maroon 5, "Boyfriend" by Justin Bieber, "Beneath Your Beautiful" by Labrinth, as well as songs for Talib Kweli, Pharrell Williams, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa, Nelly, TI, Snoop Dogg, Nick Jonas, Avicii, Austin Mahone, and more. Michael Posner was born on February 12, 1988, in Detroit, Michigan. He was raised in Southfield, Michigan, a northern suburb of Detroit.[6][7] He is the son of Roberta Henrion, a pharmacist,[8] and Jon Posner, a criminal defense attorney.[9] He has a sister who is 6 years older.[10] His father is Jewish and his mother is Catholic.[11][12] Posner graduated from Pembroke Elementary School and Groves High School, where he ran varsity track and cross-country. He attended Duke University, where he was a member of Sigma Nu fraternity[13] and graduated in 2010, with a degree in sociology and an overall 3.59 GPA. Posner started out as a record producer, working on some tracks with his hometown friend Big Sean.[10] Posner produced and featured on Big Sean's first mixtape on the song, titled "Smoke & Drive". Posner's second mixtape, A Matter of Time (the first mixtape being Reflections of a Lost Teen) started attracting industry attention in 2009.[15] Working with Don Cannon and DJ Benzi, the mixtape was recorded and released through Small Town Records[16] at Duke University in March 2009 under the name, "Mike Posner & the Brain Trust", the Brain Trust referring to Posner's supporters.[17][18] The release was unusual for being distributed for free through iTunes U, a channel designed for educational audio content. Although Posner was not the only artist to take advantage of this loophole, his release was the most organised and high profile, and attracted the largest response, immediately reaching the number one position on the iTunes U chart.[15] Posner signed a record deal with J Records (RCA/Sony) in July 2009, after his Junior year at Duke University.[19] He chose to return to Duke after signing, and toured on the weekends while at the same time recording for his debut album.[20][21][22] Posner's third mixtape One Foot Out the Door was released in October 2009. The mixtape was accompanied by a web series of the same name which aired bi-weekly from September to December. Posner's debut album, 31 Minutes to Takeoff was released in August 2010. The first single, "Cooler Than Me" has reached at number 6 on the US Billboard Hot 100. He performed at music festival Bonnaroo and on the 2010's Warped Tour. The second and third singles, "Please Don't Go" and "Bow Chicka Wow Wow" reached the top 20 and 30 on the Hot 100 respectively. The latter was released with an added verse by rapper Lil Wayne. Posner won a 2011's ASCAP Award from the publishing organization for "Cooler Than Me". On October 7, 2011, RCA Music Group announced it was disbanding J Records along with Arista Records and Jive Records. With the shutdown, Posner (and all other artists previously signed to these three labels) will release his future material on the RCA Records brand. After the release of his debut album, he began work on his second studio album under the title Sky High and released a single "Looks Like Sex" to digital outlets on December 2, 2011.[25][26] To prelude the release of the album, Posner released his third mixtape, The Layover. However, with the success of his first album, Posner began to feel uncomfortable with being in the spotlight and struggled with depression. He took a break from making music to write and produce songs for other artists.[10] Posner later announced via Twitter that his next upcoming album would be titled Pages and would be released in late Summer or early June 2013.[27] His single "The Way It Used To Be" premiered on digital outlets on June 11, 2013.[28] In September, it was announced that he had filmed a music video for his new single "Top of the World" which would appear on his upcoming Page 1 EP set for release in October.[29] The song was originally used for a Reebok campaign, and made available as a free download under the title "Tapada World" as a special remix.[30] The song was released on December 17, 2013, featuring Big Sean, and the music video on December 19. On March 4, 2014, Posner announced his Unplugged tour. Running seven dates in the major US markets, the tour will highlight music new and old from the songwriter and producer's discography; including some new material from upcoming album, titled Pages, while also giving fans a shot at learning new information from him with stories and Q&A sessions breaking up the tunes. The unplugged sets will feature little more than Posner on predominantly acoustic instruments, save for the potential live production on "a song or two"—much like, he says, how much of his music starts. Posner will begin the tour March 31 at the World Cafe in Philadelphia, before wrapping up April 10 at Los Angeles' The Mint. The string of dates also includes a hometown show in Posner's native Detroit—his first such show, he says, in around two years. In an interview with Billboard, Mike revealed that he had signed with Island Records and that Pages would be replaced with another project. However he also stated that he would like to let the world hear his recordings from Sky High and Pages. On April 15, 2015, Mike Posner released a more stripped down single, "I Took a Pill in Ibiza", on his Vevo account.[32] Mike Posner shared an exclusive EP with his fans titled The Truth through his email sign up list. Mike later confirmed that the EP would be made available to purchase from online retailers on June 22. In addition, Posner stated that his second studio album will be released after his EP. "I Took a Pill in Ibiza" was then remixed by duo SeeB, whose version of the song garnered more than 300 million streams on Spotify[33] and a charting position of two on the Global Top 50 Chart and five on the USA Top 50 Chart.[34] The SeeB remix topped the charts in the Netherlands, Ireland, Norway, United Kingdom, Scotland and the Dance/Mix Show Airplay of American Billboard, and peaked within the top ten of the charts in Australia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, Finland, New Zealand, Sweden, Switzerland, and United States.[35][36] On March 17, 2016, Mike Posner announced his sophomore album, At Night, Alone., which was released on May 6, 2016.
