After 2 years of dedication, crafting a genre-blurring genus of pop, fusing R&B, soul and EDM, Miami-born and NYC-based singer, model and TV personality, Teraj releases his highly anticipated album, DEFY. With tracks engineered by the team behind Calvin Harris’ song “Blame” the album features production by Danny Bobby (Young Thug, Rich The Kid), Al Sween (Akon), Vezzo, The Culture and Teraj himself.
The former resident performer at Manhattan’s trendy Iguana Lounge landed performances in Rome, Montreal, and at this year’s Toronto Pride Festival, where he’ll be performing on June 22nd and 23rd, solidifying Teraj as a rising international sensation. Teraj is also a Cornell graduate who wrote, arranged, and co-produced all of the tracks for his album. Capitalizing on his previous success as a social media influencer, NYC model, and real estate agent, with numerous appearances on Bravo’s hit reality show Million Dollar Listing New York, Teraj has produced an album that’s as uplifting and transparent as his public persona, boldly defying expectations and showcasing the full force of his voice.
Teraj reveals that “An upbringing full of overcoming obstacles is the driving force behind the album, DEFY. These songs celebrate triumph over adversity, while touching upon self-love, acceptance, and the journey of coming into my own. I want listeners to bop hard when they hear my songs but ultimately take something away from the music when they pay attention to the lyrical content. With all that’s going on in the world right now, I hope these songs inspire confidence and fearlessness in listeners to be true to who they are.”
