Johnny Yukon is a Los Angeles-based, Philadelphia-bred singer/songwriter and producer who began making waves in 2015 with his beat-heavy, urban pop confections on SoundCloud. As his internet profile increased, Yukon began drawing interest from labels, and eventually settled on Atlantic. In 2017 he issued a trio of singles that began with the infectious "Laptop," which was co-produced by Drake collaborator Frank Dukes. He followed up that success two months later with "Paper" and "Malibu Feels." Another single, the R&B-, hip-hop-, and dark pop-infused "Lonely," arrived in early 2018.
