Eric Bellinger is a contemporary R&B singer/songwriter. He earned his first contract as a recording artist, but he advanced his early career as a songwriter. Beginning in 2009, he co-wrote dozens of songs for high-profile artists including Chris Brown, Brandy, and Justin Bieber. In 2014, he released his debut album, The Rebirth, followed by a pair of EPs and the first volume of his Cuffing Season series. 2018 saw the release of Eazy Call, his third studio long-player and first to hit the Billboard 200. 2019's double-album sequel The Rebirth 2 yielded the Chris Brown- and OG Parker-assisted hit "Type a Way." He remained busy at the start of the next decade, releasing the 2021 solo album New Light, as well as two collaborations with Hitmaka, 1-800-Hit Eazy: Line 1 & 2.
