Fast-rising young artist fuses sounds while spreading love on new single

LOUIS, MO – At only the age of 20, Josh Royal is setting the music industry on fire. This incredibly talented entertainer from the Midwest has been honing his craft over the last few years as he studies music engineering at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida. Along the way, he’s put together a handful of singles that he’s sharing with the world, starting with his latest hit “Certified Loverboy.” 

Royal said the song is one that perfectly captures his essence as an artist, with a strong R&B base fused with other genres that he loves.  

“I’m very diverse,” he said. “I’m not just an R&B artist though it is my favorite genre. But I’m real and pure and I create timeless music. It doesn’t matter how many times you listen to it, it doesn’t get old and you appreciate it more and more over time. With this new single, it’s basically me not being afraid to let everybody know I’m a loverboy. I feel like in today’s world everybody is kind of looking at love in a negative way. People just don’t want to do it because of how society shows love. If you listen to a lot of Rap music today and how they talk about women, it’s savage. I want to show a positive side of love and a softer side to it.” 

Though Royal is just now bursting onto the global scene, he’s been doing music for 10 years. He was discovered by a producer doing a project for Atlantic Records at age 11 when a YouTube video of him singing “Happy Birthday” to his baby cousin went viral. That led to opportunities to write and record with other artists specifically producing a demo for a group called Mindless Behavior. He began to learn how to produce music and further developed his entertainment style by performing multiple live shows. He was a finalist in the Fox Teen Talent Competition, made it far through the audition process with NBC’s The Voice, and has opened for artists such as Chante Moore, Ray Goodman, Jacquees, Sammie, and more.  

Today, he has a vault of unreleased music that he’s planning on dropping steadily throughout 2021. He’s also working on more music videos with a cinematic style inspired by his all-time favorite artist, Michael Jackson. The first of those videos will be for a single from his hit album “Need Your Attention,” which is already available on streaming platforms.
