ABOUT RICKY RICH:
Ricky Rich brings a bold and bright new bounce to hip-hop with a knack for fiery wordplay and universal hooks. Born of Syrian descent and raised in Västerås, Sweden, he has quietly claimed a place in the global conversation with just shy of half-a-billion streams, gold and platinum certifications in multiple territories, viral impact, and widespread international applause. Growing up, he quickly learned how to persevere and endure by living with a rare lung disease which left him with barely 40 percent lung capacity. Nevertheless, he carefully developed his voice. During 2017, he emerged with the debut Mitt Liv EP (My Life) followed by his mini-album Shhh two years later. 2021 saw him take over TikTok with “Habibi.” This momentum translated to streaming platforms, accumulating over 300 million streams across the original version, German Remix with Dardan and Zuna, Indian Remix with King, and Albanian Remix by DJ Gimi-O. Meanwhile, his 2022 project, Rico Sauve, represented both sides of his slick signature style. With global support from Warner, he kicks off yet another era with a fresh version of “Habibi” featuring multiplatinum New York rap phenomenon A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and more to come. Breaking creative and cultural boundaries, Ricky Rich continues to set the pace for the global sound now.
