The new single also finds McCoy reuniting with hit-making producer Benny Blanco (Maroon 5, Katy Perry, Wiz Khalifa), who collaborated with McCoy and his band Gym Class Heroes on their chart-topping, multiplatinum single “Stereo Hearts (Feat.

Having now amassed collective sales of over 2 million albums worldwide and more than 10.2 million digital singles, Travie McCoy and Gym Class Heroes first shot to global stardom in 2007 with the worldwide #1 hit, “Cupid’s Chokehold/Breakfast In America.” The single set the record for holding the top spot on the CHR/Top 40 radio charts for the most consecutive weeks by a band and helped earn them the prestigious “Best New Artist” prize at the MTV Video Music Awards that same year.
As a solo artist, Travie caused a multi-format commotion with “LAZARUS” and its lead single, the 2x platinum, top 5 smash, “Billionaire (Feat. Bruno Mars.).” With over 3.4 million sales to date and official YouTube views approaching 150 million, “Billionaire” instantly catapulted Travie to the forefront of modern pop.
2011 saw Gym Class Heroes earn their second #1 with “Stereo Hearts (Feat. Adam Levine),” the lead single from their fourth Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen release, “THE PAPERCUT CHRONICLES II.” Further hits followed, including “Ass Back Home (Feat. Neon Hitch),” and the powerful “The Fighter (Feat. Ryan Tedder).”
Long acclaimed as dynamic, genre-smashing live performers, Gym Class Heroes has toured with a wide variety of like-minded artists – including Lil Wayne and The Roots – while also topping the bill on the Vans Warped Tour and countless cross-country and international headline tours.
