In 2014, Furlong formed his publishing venture, AttaBoy Music. That year, he began working with Pop-punk band 5 Seconds of Summer on their debut album. Shortly after, Furlong began co-writing with Post-core band Sleeping With Sirens. He contributed multiple songs to their album, Madness, including the single “Kick Me,” which later won an award for song of the year at the 2015 Alternative Press Awards. Variance Magazine claimed that 2015 would be a “pivotal year for the songwriter and producer.”
That year, Furlong hit the ground running as predicted, co-writing and singing vocals on Avicii’s hit single “The Nights.” The single accumulated more than two-hundred million digital streams, one-hundred million music video views, and achieved certified sales awards in multiple countries. Continuing his momentum, Furlong worked with All Time Low on their Future Hearts album, co-wrote and co-produced the Waka Flocka Flame single “Game On” for the feature film Pixels, and closed his year co-writing the Good Charlotte single, “Makeshift Love.”
Furlong has had many chart successes both in America and internationally. His work crosses many genres including Rock, Pop, and Hip-Hop, to Electronic and Dance music. Fans of the musician claim that his acronym also stands for “real as shit,” referring to Furlong’s lyrical content and blunt personality. It has never been more apparent that nothing stands in the way of Nicholas “RAS” Furlong and his visions for future music.
