LISTEN TO “MAN OF THE YEAR” by LIL POPPA
At just 18-years-old, Lil Poppa has already drawn major attention for tracks like “Purple Hearts” — an independent release that’s organically amassed over 2.6 million YouTube views, all on the strength of Poppa’s straight-from-the-heart delivery and hard-hitting lyrics. Signed by Interscope’s Executive Vice President Joie Manda, this new signing further cements the company’s proven track record in breaking exciting new rap artists; “Natural talent spotlights itself, and with Poppa’s raw talent and unwavering mission to get his message out — there seems to be no stopping Poppa’s undeniable rise. He’s one to watch,” adds Joie.
Poppa began rapping each week at church, joining a group of friends and sharing rhymes with a spiritual bent. At age 12, he built a makeshift studio in his closet and started self-recording with a laptop and Radio Shack microphone. With a string of mixtapes under his belt, Poppa made his breakthrough with a pair of singles from 2018: “Nightmare on Elm St.” and “Purple Hearts,” whose cinematic video revealed the real-life story behind the song.”
Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Leroy Sanchez will embark on a 14-city tour, kicking off October 17 in Los Angeles, CA in support of his new single and video, “Preacher,” set to release in partnership with BroadbandTV (BBTV) on all digital streaming platforms October 19. Select dates are in support of multi-platinum recording artist Andy Grammar’s national “The Good Parts” tour. Tickets are now available at www.leroysanchez.com.
“I have never felt so strongly about a song or the vision for it. It shows a very personal side of me that I’ve never shown before. It’s not easy to be vulnerable in front of an audience, but being honest and facing our weaknesses is what makes us stronger,” says Sanchez.
Sanchez’s 2017 debut EP “Elevated” has garnered over 10 million digital streams (and growing), earning him two Teen Choice Award nominations and an opportunity to perform with Clean Bandit on the 2017 broadcast. The release of his debut single Man Of The Year received praise from Billboard and People.
In addition to having over 3.8 million subscribers on YouTube, Sanchez’s accolades include two Platinum-certified singles in Spain – Blas Canto’s “El No Soy” and Malu’s “Invisible.”
Over the past 18 months Leroy has grown a devoted fan base performing 100+ showsin over 20 countries, including sold out headline shows in Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, Toronto, Amsterdam, London, San Francisco, Cologne, Madrid, and San Diego. Additionally, he has toured and worked with many notable industry hit makers, including Machine Gun Kelly, where he’s featured on the rapper’s track “Gone”, and now multi-platinum recording pop artist Andy Grammar.
