The Kid Laroi seemingly went from being an unknown Australian teenager navigating puberty to a burgeoning superstar with a diamond plaque to his name in the blink of an eye.

Laroi — born Charlton Howard — opens up with an intimate documentary titled Kids Are Growing Up: A Story About A Kid Named Laroi, which will be available on Prime Video on Feb. 29. The “Stay” artist released the first trailer on Wednesday (Feb. 21), giving fans a taste of what’s to come.


Directed by Michael Ratner, the documentary takes viewers on an emotional journey of The Kid Laroi’s dealings with fame amid the massive commercial success of “Stay” leading into his The First Time debut album, which arrived in November.

The two-minute trailer includes a preview of an unreleased song and features contributions from his “Stay” collaborator Justin Bieber.

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

“STAY” spent seven non-consecutive weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100, and the diamond-certified anthem won Top Hot 100 Song as well as Top Collaboration honors at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards.

Post Malone also sings Laroi’s praises in the clip: “Laroi, he’s so ambitious. I could tell he was gonna be huge.”

In a more serious turn, The Kid Laroi also gets candid about the lessons he learned from his late mentor, Juice WRLD, who passed away from an accidental drug overdose in December 2019.

“[Juice WRLD] taught me a lot about life,” he says. “He had so much life left to live. That just should not be placed on anybody.”

Prime Video is celebrating the doc’s arrival by hosting an interactive screening watch party and live Q&A between fans and The Kid Laroi from his home in Los Angeles on Feb. 28 at 4 p.m. PT.
