Cameron Alexander Dallas (born September 8, 1994) is an American singer, songwriter, model, internet personality and actor, best known for prominence on the video application Vine and YouTube and later for his music career. After turning into an Internet sensation Dallas has gone on to star in films such as Expelled and The Outfield. Later, in 2018, Dallas got himself a record label deal with Warner's Retrofuture, releasing his first single, "My Boo", topping charts including United Kingdom and Canada, and a top 2 peak in the United States. Followed by the lead single, Dallas announced his first EP entitled Yin & Yang (2018) along with the release of the second single, "Expectations", the smashing track that topped all charts around the globe, including the Billboard Hot 100 for three consecutive weeks and the United Kingdom's Official Charts for four consecutive weeks, turning into one of the most successful songs of the year.

After seven months away from the spotlights, Dallas returned to the music scene with the song "Make Up", a collaboration with Ariana Grande. The single was a record-breaking smashing hit worldwide, spending seven weeks on number one at the Billboard Hot 100. Following the success of the first single, Dallas once again ruled the charts with the second single "(Not) Thinkin' Bout You", and announcing his debut album, Suburban Boy. Both single and album topped the charts simultaneously, with the singer having the biggest SPS sales of the year and getting acclaim from music critics.

In 2018, Dallas made history turning into a Grammy Award nominee with only six songs released, winning for his co-producer role at Shawn Mendes' project, Evolution. He was nominated once again in 2019 for 10 categories, winning Record Of The Year for "Make Up" and Best Recording Package for the artwork from his album, Suburban Boy.
