Posner’s RIAA multi-platinum global hit “I Took A Pill In Ibiza (Seeb Remix)” surpassed 1 billion worldwide streams and is the #2 most streamed song of 2016. The Detroit-based musician released his debut album, “31 Minutes to Takeoff,” in August 2010. The album spun off three hit singles including “Cooler Than Me” (double-platinum Hot 100 Top 10 hit); “Please Don't Go” (platinum Top 10 hit); and “Bow Chicka Wow Wow.” Mike is also known for writing the Grammy®-nominated “Sugar” by Maroon 5, and “Boyfriend” by Justin Bieber, as well as co-writing songs for Pharrell, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa, Nelly, TI, Snoop Dogg, Avicii, Nick Jonas and more.
His music has been hailed by numerous reviewers including Billboard, who described it as “introspective and revealing,” and Rolling Stone wrote “His pleasant voice suggests Paul Simon during acoustic-driven tunes … Mike Posner is at the head of a new genre.” The New York Times wrote “‘At Night, Alone.’ is an elegantly rendered album … Alone. recalls a 1970s singer-songwriter album, raw and intimate.”
