About The

In 2021 and at only 17 years old, The Kid Laroi became the youngest solo artist ever to hit number one on the Aria album charts for his album "F*ck Love (Savage)".

He is of Kamilaroi (or Gamilaraay) descent through his great-great-grandfather (a member of the Stolen Generations). Laroi's real name is Charlton Kenneth Jeffrey Howard, and he previously used the stage name "Charlton" before changing it to the artist name "Laroi", a tribute to his great-great-grandfather's Aboriginal nation.

He is now Los Angeles-based, where he lives with his mother and younger brother.

In 20201, Laroi had three platinum Aria singles (So Done, Go and Without You) and five gold Aria singles (Diva, Let Her Go, Wrong, Tell Me Why and Addison Rae).
