Quinn XCII's "U & Us" effectively uses simple line illustrations to connect us to the emotional core of his song.
With his ability to seamlessly blur the lines between pop, hip-hop, electronic and soul, Quinn XCII has quickly paved his own lane with his unique sound. An early mixtape release turned heads, but it was his debut EP Change of Scenery, released in 2015, that put Quinn XCII on the map, connecting with the blogosphere and snaring millions of online streams. His track Stung hit #1 on Hype Machine, and a follow-up EP, 2016s Bloom, cemented his ability to meld styles and write about more varied subject matter. Quinn XCIIs featured vocals on Kings of Summer, a collaboration with childhood friend and frequent collaborator, producer ayokay, reached #1 on Spotifys Global Viral chart and #1 on Hype Machine, accumulating 65 million plays on Spotify. All signs point to yet another hit with Straightjacket, which was named SoundClouds Song of the Month this past January and reached #3 on SoundClouds Pop chart; at Spotify, Straightjacket has been streamed nearly 20 million times around the globe, with three million monthly listeners.
