Get to know 24kGoldn who is battling for Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart with TikTok anthem Mood

The US rapper has scored three UK Top 40 singles so far in 2020.

24kGoldn is a star on the rise, and he's sent a video message to to let fans know more about his music, which is sure to become a Top 40 staple for years to come.

Real name Golden Landis Von Jones, the 19-year-old's first hit was in February with Top 30 effort City of Angels, boosted by a dance craze on TikTok. Follow-up Mood with Iann Dior took off on the social platform in even greater fashion, accelerating into the UK Top 10.

There's a clear TikTok theme to 24kGoldn's hit collection so far, as he also has another song concurrently in the Official Singles Chart, literally titled Tick Tock. Proving he has carved out a legitimate place in popular music, Clean Bandit and Mabel have enlisted his talents on the Top 20 hit. With a trio of hits in 2020 so far, 24kGoldn has proved rapidly that he's more than a one-hot wonder and a force to be reckoned with.
