The 7-track EP is lead by the hit single, “Favorite” featuring BUDDY, which has received close to 5 million streams to date and has cracked the top 20 on Billboard’s Adult R&B Songs Chart. Genesis will also feature songwriting and production from Thomas along with a guest appearance from GRAMMY® nominee, Elle Varner. In anticipation of the forthcoming EP, Leon just released a new track entitled “PLW,” which is a celebration of powerful women.
Mentored by musical legend, Babyface, Leon Thomas is also an accomplished songwriter. At only 21-years-old, he impressively garnered a 2015 GRAMMY® in the category of “Best R&B Album” for the chart-topping Toni Braxton & Babyface collaboration: Love, Marriage & Divorce. In addition, Thomas has written for such artists as Post Malone, Ariana Grande, Chris Brown and Zendaya among others.
Outside of his expanding music career, Leon is also a burgeoning actor. At just 10-years-old, he brought Young Simba to life in The Lion King on Broadway before landing starring roles in The Color Purple, Caroline, Change and August Rush. In 2017 we saw him join the HBO hit Insecure as Eddie in addition to starring in the critically acclaimed drama Detroit by Academy® Award-winning director Kathryn Bigelow.
With a single that is climbing the charts and various credits to his name in both music and acting, Genesis will certainly be another huge moment in the entertainer’s illustrious career
