Nicknamed after the attire he became known for wearing in recording studios, Pink Sweat$ is a singer songwriter who favours R&B ballads consisting of only his voice and guitar.
The popular R&B American singer-songwriter has racked up millions of streams with soft, acoustic ballads like honestly, which reached #23 on Spotify’s Global Viral Chart and #10 on Spotify’s US Viral Chart, and trialled over 2 million streams in under 8 weeks.
You won’t find any percussion in Pink Sweat$’ — in fact there is little more than a tranquil line on guitar and a series of harmonies, the track is like a demo that never got beefed up but somehow sneaked onto the streaming platform anyway. That fragility immediately marks it as an outlier, and that’s the point.
This unique artist is capturing the attention of fans across the world. “I’m not trying to be different — I am different,” Pink Sweat$ says. “I never talk about sex in an explicit way; that’s intentional. I never degrade women; that’s intentional. I don’t have a [fancy] haircut. I wear pink. That’s not typical for the history of R&B.”
After taking to the stage for Falls Festival he will perform his breakout headline shows across Australia and New Zealand, delighting fans with his heartfelt, unvarnished ballads.
