Wincent Weiss (born January 21, 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

In 2013, Weiss participated in the tenth season of the German talent show Deutschland sucht den Superstar, the German adaptation of the Idol franchise. After a successful audition, he became one one of the top 29 contestants but failed to make it to the live shows. 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. The song peaked as number six on the German Singles Chart and earned a platinum certification by the Bundesverband Musikindustrie (BVMI).

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.
