Known far and wide as the frontman of alternative hip-hop superstars Gym Class Heroes, McCoy's solo debut sees him teaming up with a diverse array of studio superstars for a genre-busting, groundbreaking new collection.
Among the contributing producers, writers, and artists are T-Pain, Bruno Mars and the Smeezingtons (B.o.B, Cobra Starship, Flo Rida), Detail (Akon, Lady Gaga), The Stereotypes (Ne-Yo, Mary J. Blige), Evan 'Kidd' Bogart (Adam Lambert, Beyonce), and Josh Abraham (Velvet Revolver, 30 Seconds To Mars) & Oligee (Flo Rida, Leighton Meester).
'LAZARUS' is heralded by the first single, 'Billionaire' (featuring Bruno Mars), which debuted at MTV.com in March. The companion video, directed by Mark Staubach, premieres in May. 'Billionaire (featuring Bruno Mars)' is already taking off at Top 40 and Rhythmic radio, in rotation at stations including Z100 in New York and KIIS in LA.
McCoy is currently poised for his first-ever solo tour, joining Photo Finish recording duo 3OH!3 and Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen labelmates Cobra Starship on the hugely anticipated 'Too Fast For Love' tour, presented by MTV. The trek will
take off late April and then travel North America through mid-June.
A select number of the 'Too Fast For Love' dates will be part of the second annual 'mtvU Movies & Music Festival,' a
groundbreaking new tour which features the hottest performers and most buzzed-about movies leading up to June's 2010 MTV Movie Awards. Furthermore, McCoy - along with 3OH!3 and Cobra Starship - will be among the star-studded lineup
featured at the upcoming Bamboozle Chicago, slated to rock the Windy City on Saturday, May 15th.
