The week’s MTV PUSH Artist of the Week is Mike Posner. Since early 2009, the Detroit native (who just graduated college with not one but TWO degrees and a pretty impressive GPA to boot) has been dazzling audiences — and artists like 50 Cent, Kid Cudi and Drake — with his hip-hop-savvy brand of pop. Equally at home putting out mixtapes hosted by rap heavy hitters such as Don Cannon (A Matter Of Time) or crafting laid-back, hook-filled cuts like his unstoppable breakthrough single “Cooler Than Me,” Mike Posner is a jack-of-all-trades, with Asher Roth, Justin Timberlake and Robin Thicke leanings, appealing to fans who like to use the shuffle function and keep their tracks fresh.
With his highly anticipated debut album, 31 Minutes To Takeoff, out August 10, Mike Posner is about to find himself in some rarefied, if not completely cool, air.
Watch Mike Posner’s “Cooler Than Me” video and watch him perform “Falling,” “Please Don’t Go” and, of course, “Cooler Than Me” live. Plus, check out exclusive interviews with Mike Posner.
