Cris Cab - Sorry
Cris Cab, the rising singer and songwriter who has collaborated with the likes of Pharrell and J Balvin, returns today with new solo single "Sorry" out now via Epic Germany/Sony Music Germany.
Cab is enjoying the success of his 2018 collaborative single "Just Wanna Love You" featuring Latin superstar recording artist J Balvin. The single has clocked more than 25 million worldwide streams to date and propelled Cab onto Spotify's Pop Rising, Apple Music'sBreaking Latino, and YouTube's Latin Pop Before It Breaks playlists. The Miami-based artist boasts nearly 500K monthly listeners on Spotify alone and previously held the #1 spot onBillboard's Emerging Artist Chart.
At just 26 years old, Cris Cab has accomplished more in the world of music than most artists could ever dream. He has hit the top of the charts, won awards, collaborated with some of the biggest names in all of music, and toured the world playing in arenas, festivals, and clubs. Yet, he's somehow still just getting started.
Born to Cuban parents in Miami, Cris fell in love with his craft at a very young age, getting inspiration and access to music, sounds, and different flavors of rhythm from the streets of his home city. It was his first demos that he recorded at just 15 years of age that grabbed the attention of one of the most influential figures in pop culture-Pharrell Williams. Connecting with an artist of his caliber changed Cris' life forever. Media outlets like Billboard and Perez Hilton began featuring the young talent at the same time, propelling his studio efforts, which included a single featuring Wyclef Jean.
As a protégé of Pharrell, Cris has mastered his craft while working alongside some of the game's brightest stars. Artists like Big Sean, Pitbull, Mike Posner and B.o.B would also contribute to Cab's songs. In 2015, he even released a re-edition of Sting's famous "Englishman In New York," which found its way onto the charts.
It was the 2014 single "Liar Liar," however, which catapulted Cris into the limelight. With lyrics by Pharrell, the song became an international smash, charting in the Top 10 of 42 countries worldwide and peaking at #9 on the Worldwide Top 40 Airplay Chart, and peaking at #1 in France and Israel, #2 in Germany, and #3 in Italy and Holland. The record was certified Gold in Germany and Switzerland and earned Platinum sales in Italy. Meanwhile, the video for the song would go on to accumulate close to 62 million YouTube views with over 52 million streams on Spotify alone.
The singer has also shared the stage with the likes of Ariana Grande, Ellie Goulding, Sam Smith, Iggy Azalea, Lorde, and more. He was the opening act on Pharrell's 2014 "Dear G.I.R.L." tour, hitting arenas throughout Europe, and also played Governor's Ball that same year. On the night of French President Emmanuel Macron's victory in 2017, Cris was invited by the new President as a special guest to perform in front of thousands of people at the world famous Louvre Museum in Paris. All of this activity would lead to accolades like the MTV International Push Artist of the Month and drive the young artist to the #1 spot on Billboard / Twitter's Emerging Artists Chart.
2019 is the year of Cris Cab's return to music. Having spent the bulk of his time between releases in the studio, Cris has a new batch of songs that are primed to catapult the artist to new heights. Working with a solid list of industry heavy hitters like Boi-1da (Drake), Danja (Justin Timberlake) and Pharrell, Cris is embarking on a journey of incorporating Latin elements in his music and going back to his roots. As a Miami-born Cuban, the Latin blood has always run through his veins. Working together with artists like J Balvin before they reached international stardom makes Cris a credible household name among Latin music fans, producers, and artists.
Cris Cab's new single "Sorry" is available now on all streaming platforms worldwide.
