Hailing from Long Island, the now Los Angeles-based Billboard charting artist AJ Salvatore has had a wild ride of a career. The young 25-year-old has had releases under Universal, Sony, gone on to chart at #12 on Billboard Dance Club Songs, #19 in the US Viral 50, #21 in the Global Viral 50, and released official remixes for Lil Yachty, Paris & Simo, Bleona, and Shaun Frank on Ultra Records. He’s also performed at EDC Orlando and opened for superstars such as Quix, Borgeous, Carnage, Ghastly, Alvin Risk, Dirty South, Shaun Frank, and SNBRN to name a few.
Choosing to keep a lot of his personal information to himself, 23 year old rapper TOKYO’S REVENGE appeared seemingly out of nowhere in 2018 with an aggressive, distorted style that reminded many listeners of the late XXXTentacion. His debut single“GOODMORNINGTOKYO!” was a viral hit, that when on to peak at #1 on the Billboard US Bubbling Under Hot 100 in 2019. The artist said in interviews he chose to stay anonymous so that listeners would experience his music without any outside associations based on where he was from or what scenes he was associated with. His anonymity didn’t keep listeners from playing his tracks on repeat, and soon his second single, “THOT!,” followed in the same viral footsteps of his first hit. In addition to two major singles, TOKYO’S REVENGE has gone on to release records with major artists such as The Kid Laroi and 24kGoldn.
Now, the two have come together for their hyped single “Vitamins” that is pure energy for the entire two minutes. AJ Salvatore’s production shines as he provides an energizing mix of trap and electronic beats, and pulsating baseline and TOKYO’S REVENGE fast spitting rap flows seamlessly overtop. There’s no doubt that these two make an excellent team and hopefully this is the start of many more collaborations between them both.
Here’s what AJ Salvatore had to say about it:
“Recording ‘Vitamins’ couldn’t have been easier. TOKYO came into the studio, loved the track, and wrote everything on the spot. The record is a nice hybrid of our sounds that I believe both of our fans will enjoy.”
