Sage The Gemini debuted in 2008 with the viral smash hit, “You Should Know,” earning more than 3 million worldwide spins. 2013 saw the Fairfield, CA native unite with the Bay Area’s influential HBK Gang collective for the 2x RIAA platinum certified hit single, “Gas Pedal (Feat. IAMSU!).” The track proved a crossover sensation, reaching the top 5 on Billboard’s “Hot Rap Songs,” the top 10 on “Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs,” and #29 on the overall “Hot 100” – Sage’s first-ever top 40 success. Furthermore, the “Gas Pedal” companion video was an online blockbuster, now with over 98 million individual YouTube views alone.
“Red Nose” followed, earning RIAA platinum, “Hot 100” chart placement, and nearly 100 million individual YouTube views. Both “Red Nose” and Gas Pedal” were then included on the “GAS PEDAL” EP, a top 30 chart success upon its 2013 release. “REMEMBER ME,” Sage’s acclaimed debut album, dropped the next year and immediately entered the SoundScan/Billboard 200 at #47 amidst ecstatic press coverage and critical attention.
2015 saw the arrival of “Good Thing (Feat. Nick Jonas),” once again rocking Billboard’s “Hot 100” and drawing close to 21 million YouTube views. As if that weren’t enough, Sage The Gemini has proven an increasingly in-demand featured artist, with appearances including Flo Rida’s 3x RIAA certified single, “G.D.F.R. (Feat. Sage the Gemini & Lookas).” A #1 smash on the iTunes Store’s “Top Hip-Hop/Rap Songs” chart, the track – which is also included on Atlantic’s worldwide #1 “FURIOUS 7 – ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK” – proved another huge hit for Flo Rida, reaching the top 3 on Billboard’s “Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs” while also ranking among the top 10 in multiple countries around the world. What’s more, the “G.D.F.R. (Feat. Sage the Gemini & Lookas)” companion video – directed by Malcolm Jones (R. Kelly, Chris Brown) – has logged more than 278 million individual YouTube views this far.
Sage The Gemini recently joined forces with two fellow superstars for Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign, & Sage The Gemini’s “Don’t Get Much Better,” featured on Artist Partner Group, Atlantic Records and Universal Pictures’ chart-topping “THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS: THE ALBUM.” The official musical companion to THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS is available now at all retailers and streaming outlets.
