‘Kids Are Growing Up,’ a new documentary about the “Without You” singer’s rise to fame, is coming to Prime Video

Get ready for a glimpse into The Kid LAROI’s life.

Amazon MGM Studios unveiled the trailer for Kids Are Growing Up: A Story About a Kid Named Laroi, a new Prime Video documentary about the “Without You” singer’s rise to fame, on Tuesday.

Directed by Michael D. Ratner, the upcoming film features interviews with LAROI about his rapidly changing life from simple Australian kid to global star, as well as the 20-year-old musician’s mentors Justin Bieber and Post Malone.

“I always wanted to be, like, the hometown hero,” says LAROI (whose real name is Charlton Howard) in the trailer, later opening up about career doubts. “It feels like so much pressure, and that gets in my head a lot, thinking maybe one day it could just not happen.”

He speaks candidly about his close-knit relationship with late rapper Juice WRLD, who died at age 21 in 2019. “I had an incredible mentor. He taught me a lot about life. He had so much life left to live. That just should not be placed on anybody,” said LAROI.

Malone offers praise to the “Too Much” musician. “LAROI, he’s so ambitious. I could tell he was gonna be huge,” he said in the trailer.

LAROI recalls his excitement upon first getting contacted by Bieber, with whom he collaborated on the 2021 hit “Stay,” and the Canadian superstar details their first conversation.

“The first time I ever actually called him, he was in the shower,” said Bieber. “I was like, ‘What’s up, dog? You can call me when you’re done showering!'”

Kids Are Growing Up began production before “Stay” took off, and cameras followed LAROI throughout his first world tour — so fans will get a front-row seat to many milestone moments he’s experienced.
