About Blanco Brown

In a year that was defined by innovative genre-bending, few artists rode a new look to success like Blanco Brown did. Following the smash hit "Old Town Road," Blanco dropped "The Git Up," a smart and catchy melding of country and hip hop that he defined as "trailer trap." This genre-defying song received more than 50 million Spotify streams by mid-summer. The song and it’s accompanying dance hit the big time, thanks in large part to his how-to dance challenge video on YouTube with country artist Lainey Wilson, amassing more than 55M views. The catchy song and it’s fun dance helped catapult Blanco to 480K+ subscribers on YouTube, plus another 105K on Instagram.
