Norway's Cashmere Cat is known most as a behind-the-scenes figure. He previously entered the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 via his co-production roles on Charli XCX's "Break the Rules" and Tory Lanez's "Luv," and has also worked with the likes of Ryn Weaver, Tinashe, and the Weeknd. On 9, a debut album that follows an assortment of headlining singles and EPs dating back to 2012, the producer refines his slightly left-of center, R&B-inspired pop with assistance from Lanez (on "Trust Nobody," with Selena Gomez), the Weeknd (on "Wild Love," with Francis and the Lights), and several other high-profile collaborators. Among the other singles are the Camila Cabello showcase "Love Incredible" and an Ariana Grande number, "Quit."
