Allday is known for being nobody but himself. After a string of successful self-released singles, EPs and mixtapes, the LA-via-Melbourne rapper dropped his debut album, Startup Cult.
The record landed him a number three spot on the ARIA Charts – falling behind to only SIA and Ed
Sheeran. Hit singles Right Now and You Always Know The DJ were spawned and caught the ear of seasoned tastemakers like Sway Calloway, Complex, and Pigeons & Planes.
It’s safe to say that Startup Cult has fixed Allday firmly in the hearts of music lovers. The LP scooped up over 25 million streams and sold over 20,000 units just at home. Its success has seen Allday headline festivals, tour the USA and completely sell out multiple Australian tours in a snap.
A couple of features (Troye Sivan and Asta) and a mixtape or two later, and Allday’s latest album Speeding – with Sides, Raceway and the incredible In Motion – is setting off sparks of excitement among his 500,000+ social media followers.
Another top 10 chart debut and a huge sold out album tour that took in concert halls like Festival Hall and Luna Park gives some indication of just how big the Allday juggernaut has become.
