In 2016, he released his first mixtape, 18, earning instant attention, with the breakout track, "Ice Cream," becoming an instant fan favorite. Since then, Harlow has garnered more than 130 million total streams and counting, in part fueled by his acclaimed mixtape, Gazebo, released in November 2017 on his own Private Garden label.

Camp)," "CODY BANKS," SYLVIA (feat. 2forwOyNE)" and "DRIP DROP (feat. Cyhi The Prynce)" - and later earned Harlow a 2019 BET Hip Hop Awards Nomination for "Best Mixtape."

Bryson Tiller)" the first single from his latest mixtape, Confetti, released in September 2019.
