“Out Of Reach” follows his fan favorite Antisocial EP. The latter has accumulated tens of millions of streams highlighted by “Rockstar.” The song has reeled in over 11 million Spotify streams and counting as well as 4 million YouTube views on the music video, which was shot in Toronto and directed by Kevin Lien. Earning critical acclaim, Ones To Watch proclaimed, “Outside of beautiful sonics and ear-candy melodies, it’s BoyWithUke’s poetry that shines through the most on ‘Rockstar’.”
Antisocial landed in the wake of “Sick Of U” feat. Oliver Tree, which has generated over 55 million Spotify streams and 22 million YouTube views on the music video. Meanwhile, Genius predicted, “‘Sick Of U’ signifies a new chapter for the artist.”
Speaking of Genius, BoyWithUke’s “Toxic” Open Mic performance has remained the #1 most viewed video on Genius with over 101 million views and counting—watch HERE. He recently explained the song’s backstory on Verified—watch HERE.
BoyWithUke continues racing towards a major mainstream breakthrough. His following has grown beyond 7 million on TikTok, 3 million on YouTube, and nearly 10 million monthly listeners on Spotify. His full-length debut album Serotonin Dreams only fueled this explosion. Beyond tallying hundreds of millions of streams, The Honey Pop hailed it as “the album of our dreams.”
Additionally, BoyWithUke’s 2021 Platinum-Certified smash hit “Toxic” has amassed over 1.2 billion global streams to date and peaked at #1 on the Alternative Radio Chart for two consecutive weeks. Not to mention, it was #7 on Google’s Top Trending Songs of 2022 (US). Last year, he also sold out his first-ever headline shows in New York and Los Angeles.

What do we know about BoyWithUke? If you quickly scan TikTok, you can figure out he is a musical artist who writes and produces all of his own music, creating songs in his dorm room on GarageBand while hiding his face from the public with his now signature glowing mask. Take a deeper look, and you’ll see he frequently posts “minute long songs,” many times written in response to requests from fans. His biggest hit to date was written after a fan commented “make a song about toxic friends plzzzx,” and the response was the song “Toxic.” The song describes how it feels when you realize all your friends are terrible people (people you’d probably be better off without), but the thought of being alone makes you feel even worse. The song has taken over as it vaulted into the Top 10 at Alternative Radio and has reached nearly 1.2 billion global streams to date. Not to mention, his performance of “Toxic” has emerged as the platform’s second highest-viewed Genius video to date with nearly 60 million views and counting. Up next, he will be continuing his sold out international headline tour and releasing his debut album Serotonin Dreams that features new single “IDGAF” ft. blackbear. The project will be the follow up to previous full length projects Melatonin Dreams, Fever Dreams, Trouvaille EP, and his latest Faded EP (featuring numerous songs created from his TikTok “minute long songs” project).
