The youngest recipient in history to win the prestigious Aria Award for “Breakthrough Artist of the Year” will perform his debut show in Singapore this 24th March at *SCAPE The Ground Theatre!
Ready, his debut EP has already amassed over 100 million global streams and features standout singles “Don’t Tell Me,” “Dazed & Confused,” “Younger” and “Not Thinkin’ Bout You,” all of which have been propelling Ruel on a swift, upward trajectory. The video for EP track “Younger” caught fire and has enjoyed over 5.5 million views since its release in August, with “Younger,” “Dazed & Confused,” and “Don’t Tell Me” all certified Gold in Australia. Having wrapped 2018 on a major high, Ruel became the youngest recipient in history to win the prestigious Aria Award for “Breakthrough Artist of the Year,” he performed at the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games, released a remix of EP track “Not Thinkin’ Bout You” featuring Grammy-nominated rapper GoldLink, performed at Tyler The Creator’s “Camp Flog Gnaw” festival, and completed very own sold out “Ready World Tour” through North America, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the UK. Ruel is just getting started.
Last October, Elton John, who was on tour in Australia, requested a meeting and an interview with Ruel for his Rocket Hour show on Beats 1, telling him: “You have the most amazing voice that I've ever heard from a male singer at 14 years of age and it's quite incredible.” Not long after, Ruel was invited to support his future RCA Records label mate, Khalid, on his Australia/New Zealand tour, performing to more than 5,000 people a night. A month later, “Don’t Tell Me” was featured in Beats by Dre’s #AboveTheNoise film (starring Cara Delevingne, Neymar Jr, Serena Williams, and others), which sent the track’s streaming numbers soaring once again. “I think ‘Don’t Tell Me’ fits the film perfectly, because it’s about rising above the noise, rising above people who are putting you down, which is exactly what the song is about,” Ruel says.
