Obtaining more than 500,000 streams by the end of the year (through music streams and mixtape streams respectively).

His most popular singles "Blame," "Play Me," and "Freak" have appeared on a number of Hiphop/R&B influenced compilations, one such as Love & Hip Hop DJ Drewski's "The MVMT: Dirty Jerz" mixtape in collaboration with DJ TrizzyTrip early 2018.
