JNR Choi (Epic/Black Butter)
5/12/22

WHAT IT IS: Before JNR Choi turned his hybrids of hip-hop, R&B and pop into hits, he walked the runway for name designers like Givenchy, Philipp Plein and AMIRI. Creating a genre he calls “Afro-drill,” the U.K.-based artist crossed over to the U.S. with “TO THE MOON,” which topped Spotify’s Viral charts and has since landed on coveted playlists like Today’s Top Hits while peaking at #3 on TikTok’s U.S. Top Tracks chart. With his major-label debut album still ahead, JNR recently tapped Gunna for a remix of “TO THE MOON.”
