Toosii’s frequent collaborator, Drew Carroll, directed “Met In LA,” capturing the artist and his friend cruising around in a Rolls-Royce living young and free. Shining in the glow of the city, Toosii is lighthearted, and open to receiving love and support from others.

That set has since amassed over 200 million global streams, hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart, and launched Toosii into the top 10 of Rolling Stone’s Breakthrough 25 chart. Poetic Pain built upon that success with ease, garnering over 90 million global streams since its late September release and debuting in the top 20 on the Billboard 200 chart.
