How Mike Posner Is Making a Comeback

In 2010, Mike Posner came to prominence with his chart-topping single “Cooler Than Me.” Since then, the Michigan singer-songwriter and producer has yet to be seen in the spotlight, other than penning songs for artists like Justin Bieber and Maroon 5, and releasing tracks that have failed to reach the same success as the 2010 hit.
In a recent blog post, Posner wrote about the lessons he’s learned, finding himself, and making a comeback with his 2015 single, “I Took A Pill In Ibiza.” The original acoustic track was later remixed by Norwegian duo SeeB and it has since topped the charts in various European countries.
“During the roller coaster ride of my short-lived fame, my self-identity became all tied up in being young, rich, and sort of famous. But five years after this period, I was forced to redefine how I viewed myself,” Posner said. “We can open up new doors, and close old ones anytime we want. Sometimes it takes a tragedy or failure, like my fall from fame, for us to do so.”
