Britney Spears comeback for the VMAs 2016 has also marked her “Make Me” collaborator G-Eazy’s first performance in the stage.
Before collaborating with the pop star’s “Make Me” single under her “Glory” album, G-Eazy has been making a name of his own as an American rapper and record producer.
Real name Gerard Earl Gillum, the Oakland native has two albums already: “These Things Happen” and “When It’s Dark Out.”
G-Eazy first started his career as a record producer when he was an undergrad at the Loyola University in New Orleans, Heavy said.
He then had his first break when he opened for Lil Wayne and Snoop Dogg in 2010 and then followed by a performance in US Vans Warped Tour in June 2012.
After this, he was able to perform at Hoddie Allen at the Excellent Adventure Tour.
This time was also the birth of his first full-length album “Must Be Nice.”
His first album under a major-label “These Things Happen” topped US Billboard’s Hip-Hop/ R&B category.
G-Eazy then had his first tour spanning from Australia and New Zealand.
He said about his album, “This album more than anything is like a bench mark and a moment of validation for all the hard work through the years and all the investment of time and resources. I mean, we bet the house a number of times over and kept on doing it marching towards this moment, to be able to make the big bet, and thats what this album was.”
G-Eazy has also performed in festivals like Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Electric Forest, Made in America, and Austin City Limits.
Britney Spears and G-Eazy began filming their “Make Me” music video last June.
Britney Spears’ return for the VMA 2016 started with her trademark sexy dance, while she was wearing a sequined yellow skimpy ensemble. She then writhed on the floor and all over G-Eazy’s body while they were performing “Make Me.”
With the lackluster response to the performance, did Britney Spears ruined his first VMAs?
