Take one listen to his single, “Playa Shit,” and you’ll understand why the song is quickly becoming a becoming a favorite on Top 40 and Urban radio stations around the country.
Hailing from Motor City (Detroit), Elijah has made quite a bit of noise as of late — he’s the star of the Oxygen/NBC Series “Player Gets Played,” which is wildly successful with over 1.2 million viewers. He also been featured in commercials, and even apprared on movie screens — you may have seen him without realizing it. He’s rocked stages with the likes of Diddy, iLoveMakonnen, Barry Manilow, A$AP Rocky, Mario Winans, Rich Homie Quan, Robin Thick, Lil’ Kim, Teddy Riley, and Jordin Sparks [just to name a few]. Also, he has been featured in New York Times, VIBE, Seventeen Magazine, and more.
I mean, look, he took vocal lessons from Aretha Franklin! This kid has been groomed for greatness — so it feels inevitable. Take an ear to Playa Shit, and get used to this kid, he ain’t going nowhere.
