O’Donis grew up in Queens, along with his sister. He became interested in music at an early age, becoming the winner of a talent show at the age of three and a half by performing a Michael Jackson song. At the age of eight, his family moved to Orlando, Florida, where he took guitar, dance and piano lessons. The following year he started collaborating with the production and songwriting group Full Force, before at 10 he signed a deal with Motown Records, becoming the youngest recording artist ever signed to the label. His song “Mouse in the House” was included on the soundtrack of the 1999 film “Stuart Little”, and not long after, he started taking guitar lessons under the tutelage of Johan Oiested, a musician in Carlos Santana’s rhythm section.
During this time, O’Donis also pursued an acting career, landing the role of Diego in the television series “Grandpa’s Garage”. He would eventually appear in the live action sitcom “Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide” and in the horror film “The Pig People”. Even at this age, Colby’s net worth was well established.
After his father purchased him his first production studio when he was 12, O’Donis began opening local Florida shows for the likes of major artists such as the Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, Brian McKnight, Ne-Yo and 98°. At 15, his family moved to Los Angeles, where he became involved in Genuine Music Group, and started collaborating on producing an LP album. His net worth began to rise.
In 2006 he met the acclaimed artist Akon, who was impressed with him, and the two immediately began collaborating, producing a number of songs together. O’Donis became a part of Akon’s new label, Konvikt Muzik, an imprint of Interscope, releasing his debut album “Colby O” in 2008, produced and co-written by Akon. The album contains the single “What You Got” featuring Akon, which earned O’Donis a Favorite Newcomer award, reaching #14 on the Hot 100. His popularity was boosted, plus increasing his net worth considerably.
The same year he collaborated with Lady Gaga on her debut single “Just Dance”, the lead single from her debut studio album, “The Fame”. The song, which is considered O’Donis’ most successful one, became a huge hit, spending 11 months on the Billboard Hot 100. It was selected as one of the best-selling singles of all time, having sold over 10 million copies. It earned O’Donis a nomination for Best Dance Recording at the 50th Grammy Awards in 2009, and winning the Best Dance Recording at the Teen Choice Awards. The single shot him to fame in the world of music, considerably contributing to his wealth.
Later that year, O’Donis released “Hey Yo!”, a duet with Brooke Hogan, and was featured on Akon’s single “Beautiful”. He also released his single “I Wanna Touch You” on the radio, followed by the music video. The following year he collaborated with the Malaysian singer Mizz Nina, being featured on her single “What You Waiting For”, and released a new single entitled “Texting Flirtation”. In 2011 he signed with Z-Entertainment Records, releasing the digital single “Like Me”, followed by the music video in 2012. As of 2013, O’Donis has been working on a new album, titled “Start Over”; several singles have been released, however, the album, which was planned for a release in early 2014, still hasn’t come out.
