A Brooklyn-raised rapper, the 22-year-old Sleepy Hallow broke through in 2019 with the single “Flows,” featuring frequent collaborator Sheff G.

He has two platinum-certified singles: “Deep End Freestyle” featuring Fousheé, which reached No. 80 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 2020, and “2055,” a 2021 single that peaked at No. 51 on the charts and reached double-platinum status in March.

“Still Sleep?” marked Sleepy Hallow’s first studio album in 2021, climbing to No. 16 on the Billboard 200 charts and No. 9 in the rap category.

Tinashe’s music has been described as rhythmic pop — a blend of R&B, pop and hip hop — and she has released tracks with artists including Chance the Rapper and Britney Spears. Her entertainment career has spanned television, film and dance.

Tinashe’s debut single, “2 On” featuring Schoolboy Q, reached No. 24 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 2014 and her first studio album “Aquarius” helped earn best new artist nominations from the BET, Soul Train and YouTube Music Awards.

Tinashe also collaborated with Chance the Rapper and Snakehips on the track “All My Friends,” which earned the Ivor Novello Award for best contemporary song in 2016. That same year, she appeared on Britney Spears’ song “Slumber Party,” which topped Billboard’s dance club chart.

Early in her career, she was a member of a five-member pop group, the Stunners.
