Quinn XCII (pronounced Quinn Ninety-Two) believes we are all already The People’s Champ. It’s a message he plants at the heart of his new full-length album, The People’s Champ, out January 27th via Republic Records. It’s not about becoming the best, the biggest, the strongest, the richest, or the most successful. Instead, it reflects what the Detroit, MI native describes as “simply being.” Since his arrival in 2015, he’s excelled by simply being Quinn XCII. Powered by clever storytelling and a willingness to blur the lines between pop, soul, alternative, and hip-hop, his catalog boasts a procession of platinum singles—“Kings of Summer” with ayokay, “Straightjacket,” and “Love Me Less” with MAX—and various gold singles, namely “Flare Guns” and “Stay Next To Me” (both with Chelsea Cutler), “Another Day In Paradise,” “Stacy,” and “Always Been You.” He consistently draws crowds across the country, moving north of 350,000 tickets as a headliner and shining on hallowed stages such as Radio City Music Hall, Red Rocks Amphitheater, The Greek Theatre, and more. Simultaneously, he has played for thousands at festivals such as Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Firefly, Governors Ball, Summerfest, and Electric Forest. Moreover, he’s collaborated with the likes of Logic, Big Sean, blackbear, AJR, Chelsea Cutler, Jeremy Zucker, Ashe, Louis The Child, Gryffin, Illenium, and many others. In addition to earning acclaim from Billboard, Rolling Stone, Paper Magazine, and Interview Magazine, he’s also performed on television shows such as Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Late Late Show with James Corden, Live with Kelly and Ryan, and Today Show, to name a few.
