Wincent Weiss (German pronunciation: [ˈvɪnt͡sənt vaɪs]; born 21 January 1993 in Eutin, Germany) is a German singer and model. He was first known for taking part in Deutschland sucht den Superstar in 2013.

Career[edit]

In 2013, Weiss participated in the tenth season of the German talent show Deutschland sucht den Superstar, the German adaptation of the Idol franchise.[1] After a successful audition, he became one of the top 29 contestants but failed to make it to the live shows.[2] In 2015, German DJ duo Gestört aber GeiL and Koby Funk produced a remix of his rendition of "Unter meiner Haut", an acoustic cover of Elif Demirezer's same-titled song which Weiss's had previously uploaded on YouTube.[2] The song peaked as number six on the German Singles Chart and earned a platinum certification by the Bundesverband Musikindustrie (BVMI).[2]

Weiss's first solo single "Regenbogen" was released the same year but failed to chart. In 2016, Weiss released the single "Musik sein", which was a success in the German-speaking part of Europe, becoming a top ten hit in Austria and Switzerland. Follow-up "Feuerwerk", released in 2017, entered the top thirty in Germany and Switzerland and preceded his first studio album Irgendwas gegen die Stille, released in April 2017. A commercial success, it peaked at number three in Germany and number four on the Swiss Albums Chart and was later certified gold in Germany. A reissue of the album was released later that year.
