WHAT IT IS: The 21-year-old singer/songwriter, who plays a half-dozen instruments, is a curator of one of the fastest-growing YouTube channels in the world. In early 2016, the Los Angeles-based tastemaker had already amassed a following of millions, creating his own “flipped” versions of popular songs. He posted a video performing a cleverly arranged mashup of Drake’s “One Dance” and Nicky Jam’s “Hasta el Amanecer” that immediately went viral and prompted Fader to state, “Alex Aiono is the shockingly good YouTube singer the world actually needs.” To date, the clip has amassed more than 50m views.
