Today, celebrated actor and singer Anthony Ramos just debuted his brand new single “Mind Over Matter”. The single premiered on Apple Music’s Beats 1 with Ebro Darden and is available at all digital retailers now.
Ramos performed the track earlier today for the first time on Billboard Live. Watch HERE.
The upbeat “Mind Over Matter” illuminates another facet of Ramos’s slick, soulful, and swaggering signature sound. Backed by a funk-y bass line and driving beat punctuated with flirty female vocals and moans, the track shuffles towards a Prince-style hook as sexy as it is seductive.
The song paves the way for his anxiously awaited full-length debut, The Good & The Bad [Republic Records], on October 25, 2019.

Ramos performs at the Sayers Club in LA on October 3rd and kicks off “The Good & The Bad” Tour at Lincoln Hall on November 1st in Chicago. The jaunt rolls through major markets across North America until its conclusion at Imperial in Vancouver November 19. Check out the full itinerary and details below.

Born and raised in Bushwick and of Puerto Rican descent, Anthony Ramos first made his mark originating the dual roles of John Laurens and Philip Hamilton in the TONY® and GRAMMY® Award-winning Broadway smash Hamilton. In 2018, Ramos ignited his music career as an independent solo artist on his own terms. Not only did he lend his voice to Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Almost Like Praying” benefit single, but he also began architecting a sharp and soulful signature take on contemporary music. He teamed up with producer Will Wells [Logic, Pentatonix] for The Freedom EP, which garnered acclaim from Billboard and many others.
Ramos recently wrapped the lead in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s highly-anticipated ‘In the Heights’ movie directed by Jon M. Chu for Warner Bros to be released in June 2020.
Most recently, he appeared in the Academy Award-winning film A Star Is Born, directed by Bradley Cooper and starring Lady Gaga where he played ‘Ally’s’ (GaGa) best friend and the critically-acclaimed Netflix series She’s Gotta Have It, created by Spike Lee, based on his 1986 film.
This summer, Ramos made his Republic Records debut with the release of “Dear Diary.” A heartening confessional, “Dear Diary” sets the tone and marks the introduction to his forthcoming full-length album “The Good & The Bad.”
Ramos is repped by Modest! Management and Door 24.
