Troy Solomon, aka ABearNamedTroy, has quickly become one of the most recognizable male plus-size recording artists and influencers on Instagram.
Troy has used his platform to promote inclusivity, body-positivity, and creative expression to his 50,000+ followers. Known for his eclectic, gender-bending style, vibrant personality and positive demeanor, Troy has been featured in articles by Teen Vogue, Paper Magazine, Revelist, Mic.com, Greatist, Refinery29 UK, Refinery29, Allure.
Troy shook the world with his debut single, “Thicck”, a high-energy, cheeky anthem devoted to “thicck” bodies everywhere.
“West Hollywood-based @ABearNamedTroy releases his first-ever video for his first-ever single, "Thicck" — and it's absolutely radiating with high-gloss camp, and contagious self-confidence that you'd expect from the Instagram powerhouse. Horns and deep beat herald an unequivocal fierceness while Solomon proclaims, "I'm thicck and you wanna fuck with me, I know." Hot-pink claws, glittery lips, butterflies, honey-drenched and candy-coated cake, bright banana-colored boots (plus actual bananas) are all involved in Solomon's delivery of a self-love declaration — one with a zero tolerance policy for any hateful challengers.” - Paper Magazine
