American rapper/vocalist/Internet personality Brooke Candy grew up in the greater Los Angeles area, where she developed an early love of fashion, music, and sharing her artistic statements on various Internet avenues such as her enormously popular Tumblr. Candy's own musical career began with an outlandishly stylized video for her late-2012 banger "Das Me," but by that point she was far better known for her cameo appearance in the much further-reaching video by Grimes for her hit single "Genesis." Candy still grew a considerable cult following for her own work, which tended toward hyper-sexual and highly explicit songs presented in colorful videos. She stated in multiple interviews that her blunt, irreverent sound was inspired in part by '90s rapper Lil' Kim as well as her time spent as a stripper. Candy made a guest appearance on Charli XCX's 2012 single "Cloud Aura," and her own Opulence EP dropped in 2014. The single "Rubber Band Stacks" appeared the following year. In 2017, Candy returned with her debut full-length album, Daddy Issues. Featuring collaborations with Fun.'s Jack Antonoff, Sia Furler, Greg Kurstin, and others, the album also included the single "Living Out Loud." ~ Fred Thomas
