Brandon Smith, best known by his stage name B. Smyth, an American hip hop and R&B recording artist and dancer who released his single “Twerkoholic Part 2” last month has died after losing a battle with pulmonary fibrosis, according to his brother.
Born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on March 12, 1994, Smyth died on November 17, 2022.
His brother, Denzil, confirmed his passing in a video message posted to Smyth’s official Instagram page.
“Today regretfully I have to announce that my brother has passed away this morning from respiratory failure after a long battle with pulmonary fibrosis.”
“My brother was very excited to see a lot of you create challenges for his latest released single #Twerkoholic part 2 while he was in the ICU, it really brought him a big smile to his face.”
“So on behalf of my brother and my family we want to say thank you to all of you for all of your love & support throughout the years.”
Born on March 12, 1994, the Florida native launched his career by uploading covers of songs to YouTube, some of which amassed as many as 500,000 views.
His 2012 debut single “Leggo,” featuring 2 Chainz, peaked at No. 12 on Billboard’s Hot R&B Songs chart.
He also collaborated with Future on 2013’s “Win Win.”
His fan-favorite tune “Twerkoholic” followed in 2014, gathering in excess of 13 million streams on Spotify.
“Twerkoholic Part 2” dropped just a month ago.
