Sage The Gemini debuted in 2008 with the viral smash hit, ‘You Should Know‘, earning more than 3 million worldwide spins. 2013 saw the Fairfield, CA native unite with the Bay Area’s influential HBK Gang collective for the self-produced 2x RIAA platinum certified hit single, ‘Gas Pedal‘ [feat. IAMSU!]. The track proved a crossover sensation, reaching the top 5 on Billboard’s Hot Rap Songs, the top 10 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, and #29 on the overall Hot 100 – Sage’s first-ever top 40 success. Furthermore, the companion video was an online blockbuster, now with over 90 million individual YouTube views alone.
‘Red Nose‘ followed, also produced by Sage, earning RIAA platinum and nearly 90 million individual YouTube views. REMEMBER ME, Sage’s acclaimed debut album, dropped the next year and immediately entered the SoundScan/Billboard 200 at #47 amidst ecstatic press coverage and critical attention. Now he is back with new release, ‘Now and Later‘, and is set to emulate his earlier success. The track was featured by Snapchat, attaching it to their NEW LENS (an interactive photo/video filter). Celeb users of the lens included The Kardashians, Kevin Hart, Snoop Dogg and more. Since the launch of the lens, Sage’s monthly Spotify users jumped from 1.1 million to 5 million, with the track charting in 19 countries on Shazam [which also named it “hottest track” of November].
In the Ichy House Films directed clip, Sage decides to host a house party filled with several bad bitches, and one ends up catching his eye who he leaves the party with. It follows up his latest release ‘Do Not Disturb‘. Sage’s “West For The Winter” tour, which will also feature SOB X RBE and Derek Pope, is set to kick off on January 18th in Seattle and will be concluding on February 4th in Santa Cruz, Ca.
