103.7 Da Beat Artist Spotlight-Glo Twinz

Identical twins Paris and Pierre Byrdsong - better known by their stage name Glo.Twinz - are a classic triple threat: they can rap, dance and act. In their short careers, they''ve amassed an online following of more than 1.3 million strong, and have been featured by major artists like Migos and iHeart Memphis. Artist and songwriter RettaBaii, who also happens to be the twins'' older brother, produced their first smash single, "It''s My Birthday," which received nearly 20,000 views on Soundcloud during its debut week.

Born and raised in Dayton, Ohio, Glo.Twinz have long dreamt of being famous. They had the talent, the look and the swag. So in 2013, the family packed their bags and relocated to Atlanta, Georgia, where they hoped for more opportunities to meet the right people and make the right connections.

It turned out to be the right move. Right away, the twins were picked up by East Coast Talent Agency and began booking auditions. Not long after filming their first commercial for Synchrony Bank, the twins were featured as contestants on BET''s "Rip The Runway," where celebrity judges - including Cynthia Bailey from The Real Housewives of Atlanta - awarded them first and second place for the fresh new face campaign. It was during this time that the twins'' social media presence really exploded. Their Instragram account, which features videos of their dance moves, commercials, satirical clips and modeling photos, has more than 700,000 engaged followers to date. Even while meeting the celebrity demands of touring, rehearsal and studio sessions, the twins still maintain a healthy balance of teen-life filled with video games and friends. These two stars are burning bright and glowin-up
