The American producer, artist and songwriter Brandon Beal established himself as a musical heavyweight in 2012, when he released the hit single “Never Let U Go” with Snoop Dogg and Kato. The single was certified platinum in Denmark, and ever since, things have only gone in one direction for Beal. Growing up in Tyler, Texas, initially pursuing a career as a football player, a major injury redirected his attention towards music. Brandon fought his way to the booming music scene in New York City, where his huge talent ensured him a place in the studio writing songs with international megastars such as Lady Gaga, Flo Rida and Chris Brown.
Today, Brandon Beal lives in Denmark, and his success and style are both one hundred percent self-made. He is behind some of the biggest club and pop hits in and out of Denmark, having written the majority of Christopher’s album “Told You So”, which won the Danish Music Award for Best Pop Album in 2014 and the mega hit “CPH Girls”, on which Brandon Beal was featured, ranked as no. 2 on China's most popular streaming platform, QQ Music. In his own name, he has released “Twerk It Like Miley”, which topped the Danish charts for weeks, which resulted in a Danish Music Award 2014 for Best Club Act – as well as three Danish DeeJay Awards in 2015.
Brandon does not only excel in the pop soul genre. He has worked with Hedegaard, ‘the king of car music’, for many years – releasing singles such as “Smile & Wave” and “Drop That Booty Down Low” and demonstrating his versatility and ability to hit bull’s eye. On his latest project “Pink Café”, he had artists such as Lukas Graham, TopGunn, Christopher and Jimilian take part in pushing the boundaries of Danish music through experimental sessions and a mix of electronica, R&B and soul, which only Brandon Beal would dare and be able to create.
“Twerk It Like Miley” was also successful far beyond the borders of Europe, starting with an entry as no. 2 on the Spotify chart in the Philippines, after which it was in the Top 10 for twelve weeks in a row, and went on to break into charts all over Asia and the middle east, booming in countries like China, Indonesia, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam and the United Arab Emirates. Brandon Beal has also been part of the team behind all of Lukas Graham’s albums, which have won a plethora of Danish and international awards. Graham also performed as a guest vocalist on the international hit “Golden”, which is about Brandon’s own upbringing.
With his enormous amount of social media followers – 500,000 on YouTube and more than 150,000 on TikTok – combined with performances on SMUKfest, GRØN, a tour with Lukas Graham, his own European tour, a tidal wave of award nominations and twelve number one hits in Denmark and Asia on his resume, Brandon Beal has established himself as one of Denmark’s leading artists and songwriters, and after a few years of COVID lockdowns, an increased focus on his family and experimental music, he has once again turned his attention towards club music, which was the genre that gave him his first big breakthrough.
