Francesco Name “Artist You NEED To Know About Now”

If MJ were still alive, he’d be a fan of this 18 year old music prodigy, that’s almost for certain. Don’t let his age fool you or turn you away — this kid is a legitimate old soul.

He reminds me of an early, early Robin Thicke (back when he had long hair, was biking through the NYC streets and only went by his last name). His MJ influences are super apparent, but not copycat. You can tell he has a wide range of musical knowledge, so, props to him.

I can already see his show merch, adorned with a silhouette of his afro. He’s already got Pharrell and Justin Timberlake backing him, too, so watch out, music world!

Track you must hear: “Call”
