Shortly after high school, Jalen uploaded a music video for his song “Like You” which went viral in his local area, getting airplay on radio stations & the Florida Marlins stadium.
He immediately rose to massive internet fame after his 2014 debut album Genesis became an online hit with teenagers. The album generated over 150 million plays, as well as over 100,000 downloads in the first hour. In 2015, his video for “Until the End” had generated the most views in Vimeo history. His Soundcloud account currently has over 25 million plays for the “Genesis” playlist.
After announcing a world tour in 2015, Jalen took a hiatus on his music to focus on a real estate career due to low ticket sales.
On February 22nd 2019 he uploaded “Air Max 95’s & “Call My Name” to his Soundcloud, the latter of which instantly went viral.
