Get To Know Rising Swedish Pop Star LÉON Via Fascinating Intro Video: Idolator Premiere
LÉON triggered major buzz in 2015 with Hype Machine-conquering debut single “Tired Of Talking” — even earning Katy Perry’s seal of approval. She followed it up with another expertly constructed pop anthem called “Nobody Cares” and confirmed her status as One To Watch with excellent debut EP Treasure. While the Swedish diva’s music is generating plenty of conversation, she has remained largely under the radar. That changes today (february 19) with an intimate introduction video (below).
“I haven’t shot any visual content since I released my single and my debut EP last year, so I’m super excited to share this with people,” LÉON says of the video. “I loved shooting with Elliott Sellers, he is so talented and passionate about his work. I just want to give everyone who’s heard my music a little taste of what’s to come, and I plan to release more videos in the next few weeks. So keep your eyes and ears open!”
The newcomer is about to embark on a mini-North American tour, so make sure to catch her in a small venue while you can. See the dates below.
