Silentó, born Ricky Lamar Hawk on January 22, 1998, was raised in his birthplace, Atlanta, Georgia. He propelled himself into the worldwide music scene with his single “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)”. The wonder hit got 2,5 million on Youtube in only one week.
The single’s success got him a contract with Capitol Records. The label record added a music video for Silentó’s tune. The music video was posted to Matt Steffanina’s Youtube Channel, becoming popular in a blink of an eye. It reached number 3 on the US Billboard Hot 100.
“I had a dream of being in front of millions of people performing, so it seems like it’s going to happen”, he declared for Black Doctor.
On Valentine’s Day in 2017, the artist issued the single “Young Love”, with the help of Skylar Mones. Silentó collaborated with artists like Sophia Grace, Sunny and Dawin.
