Gym Class Heroes features rapper/singer Travie McCoy and his band as the alternative/hip-hop group that was catapulted to international stardom in 2007 with their #1 hit “Cupid’s Chokehold/Breakfast In America.” The single set the record for holding the top spot on the Top 40 radio charts for the most consecutive weeks by a band and helped earn them the “Best New Artist” award at the MTV Video Awards that same year. As a solo artist, Travie was responsible for one of the biggest songs of 2010 with his smash single “Billionaire (featuring Bruno Mars).” This year, Gym Class Heroes scored their second #1 hit with “Stereo Hearts (featuring Adam Levine),” the multi-platinum certified, lead single from their fourth Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen release, The Papercut Chronicles II. The album also spawned a pair of platinum singles including the top 5 smash “Ass Back Home (featuring Neon Hitch)” and “The Fighter (featuring Ryan Tedder).” Collectively, Travie and Gym Class Heroes have sold over 2 million albums worldwide and over 10 million digital singles.
