He even worked with Juice WRLD before he passed last year on "Day One" and "Make it Work."
The smash hit "Mood" by 24kGoldn ft. iann dior has been played over 66 million times. The catchy beat that begins with a simple guitar riff was created by a 19-year-old Kalamazoo native that goes by the name KBeaZy.
After spending 10 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, "Mood" hit the top spot for one week. This KBeaZy production is still going strong at #3 on the chart.
