The song “All Time Low” by American rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer Jonathan David Bellion is his most well-known work. He was reared in New York City, United States, and has always had a passion for music and basketball. Later, he decided on music and enrolled in a collegiate music program, albeit he never finished it. Bellion gained experience through working with people in the music industry. “Scattered Thoughts Vol. 1,” “Translation Through Speakers,” “The Separation,” and “The definition” are the four mixtapes he has released. His breakthrough came from penning the chorus for Eminem’s song “The Monster,” which starred Rihanna and Eminem and went on to win the “Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.” The Human Condition, his debut studio album, peaked at number five on the US Billboard 200 rankings. He has completed several popular, sold-out tours, such as “The Human Condition Tours,” “The Definition Tour,” and “The Beautiful Mind Tour.” He acknowledged not knowing how to read music in an interview. His music is hard to pin down because he frequently expertly combines influences from indie rock, hip-hop, and R&B.
Childhood & Formative Years
Bellion was born in Lake Grove, New York, on December 26, 1990. He has Italian ancestry. Alongside his sisters and brother, he grew up. He was interested in basketball during his school years, but by his junior year, he had switched to music, and he started penning songs on his brother’s keyboard.
He enrolled in the music department at “Five Towns College” in Dix Hills, New York, after graduating from high school. But he dropped out when he was 19 and never finished his education. Bellion made the decision to grow from his experiences rather than being restricted by a system. He chose to pursue a career in songwriting and was employed by Warner Bros. as a songwriter and A&R executive under Kara DioGuardi. He was able to write rock and hip-hop songs for several musicians because to this experience.

His debut mixtape, “Scattered Thoughts Vol. 1,” was made available via his Facebook page in 2011. He was the only one who wrote, produced, and composed the music. He joined “Visionary Music Group” in 2012, and on their “YouTube” channel, he posted a cover of Drake’s “The Motto.”
The 2012 hit song “The Monster” by Eminem, featuring Rihanna, was written by Bellion and went on to become a massive hit. “2015 Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration” was given to the song. This made him well-known and famous. He produced and co-wrote the song “Trumpets” by Jason Derulo. Bellion was also given credit for CeeLo Green’s song “Robin Williams.”
2013 saw the release of two mixtapes by him: “The Separation” and “Translation Through Speakers,” both of which were released later that year. The “Visionary Music Group” published their fourth album, “The Definiton,” in September 2014. His social media hits, including “Simple and Sweet” and “Human,” were included on this mixtape.
In October 2014, Bellion embarked on his inaugural nationwide tour, dubbed “The Beautiful Mind Tour.” His band is called “Beautiful Mind,” and the other nine members are all pals from college. In the February 2014 documentary, “Beautiful Mind,” he acknowledges his bandmates as the reason for his success and shows his admiration for them.
He was featured in two EDM songs released in 2015: “Beautiful Now” by Zedd from his album “True Colors” and “Violence” from American rapper B.o.B.’s album “Psycadelik Thoughtz.” Bellion put out many tracks in 2015 under the label “Capitol Records,” including “Woodstock,” “All Time Low,” and “Woke the F–k Up.” He started “The Definition Tour,” his second national tour, in May 2015 and it ended in July of the same year.

Released on June 10, 2016, the album spent its first week at number one on iTunes and number five on the US Billboard 200. He accomplished this despite never having a song played on the radio and without a standout verse from a well-known musician on the record.
Bellion frequently discusses faith in his music, focusing especially on God. The elaborate, fantastical, and “Pixar-like” artwork on his debut album was produced by Indonesian painter David Ardinaray Lojaya. Following the album’s release, he embarked on a three-part, sold-out national promotional tour called “The Human Condition Tour” in addition to an overseas tour.
In June 2017, he received the title of “Artist of the Month” from Elvis Duran. In 2017, Bellion performed as the opening act for Twenty One Pilots during their “Emotional Roadshow Tour” in the United States.

November 9, 2018, is when his second studio album, “Glory Sound Prep,” is scheduled to be released. “Conversations with My Wife,” the album’s lead song, was made available in October 2018.
Though Bellion draws inspiration from a variety of artists, including Pharrell Williams, Eminem, Timbaland, J. Dilla, and Coldplay, he believes that Kanye West has had the biggest impact on his sound.
