The young lad has collaborated with some of the famous musicians including Justin Bieber till today. Let’s learn more about the career and the net worth of Blackbear in 2018.
Early Life & Biography
Blackbear is the stage name of American singer Matthew Tyler Muston who was born on 27 November 1990, in Pittston, Pennsylvania. He moved to Florida when he was a little child. There is not much information about his parents and education. He broke into music very early. This could be a reason that he didn’t complete his education. During his high school, he had already joined a music band. Later, he moved to Atlanta, Georgia to make his career in pop music.
Blackbear has stolen millions of hearts with his soulful music but who has stolen his heart is not known. The musician has never spoken about his love life. He was once said to be in the relationship with Sydney Carlson, but later, the couple parted their ways. At present, he is unmarried but who he is dating is not known.
Career, Achievements, And Nominations
Blackbear was meant to be a musician only. Music flows in his blood. He never gained the professional training, but he stepped into music when he was still in his high school. He joined the Florida-based rock band Polaroid and came in front of the large audience for the first time. But soon, he left the band in order to launch his solo career. He learned music and worked on his skills for some time and finally in 2008; he released his first EP named ‘Brightness’. The next year, he released another EP ‘Contrast’ and then ‘Exposure’ in 2010.
These three EPs helped him to earn some recognition. At least, now he started working with big musicians. He had to wait until 2012 to taste the success for the first time. In 2012, he collaborated with Justin Bieber, and this gave him a much-needed career boost. When he came together with Justin, he had taken his stage name. So, he became popular as Blackbear. He didn’t let this short-termed success go in vain. He released in his debut album entitled Deadroses and Help in 2015. So far, he has released one album only.
Though Blackbear started his music career since his childhood, he could never win any major awards until today. None of his songs went ground-breaking. Maybe, this is why he couldn’t win the awards.
Net Worth & Earnings
Blackbear has enjoyed moderate success in his career. He has released only one album and a few EPs, but unfortunately, none of them was really successful in the Billboard chart. Given the fact, you can’t expect a huge net worth from him. As of now, Blackbear has an estimated net worth of $2.5 million. He has made this amount of money solely through his music career. His net worth will surely increase in upcoming years as his entire career is yet to come.
Blackbear is not only a good musician but also a wonderful person. He has donated $5514 to the victims of the mass shooting on 1s October 2017 in Las Vegas. He is indeed a man with golden heart.
