KYAN has released his debut single “Burn Mona Lisa,” available everywhere now. Even before its official release, “Burn Mona Lisa” has already become an international hit, albeit on accident. The success of the original demo has paved the way for the re-mastered and re-released version to make a serious splash.
A year ago, 21-year-old KYAN packed his bags and moved from Arizona to New York City to begin working at a record label. The cross-country trek may be a familiar tale, but KYAN had no intentions of ever being in the spotlight. However a music class college project led him to roll the dice and upload his song “Burn Mona Lisa” on Spotify under his full name, Kyan Palmer. Almost overnight KYAN became an accidental pop star, quickly climbing the US, Canadian and Singaporean Spotify Viral Top 50 Charts with his demo version of “Burn Mona Lisa.” To date, the rough cut has amassed 1.5 million plays, setting the re-mastered version up for some major success.
KYAN is quickly solidifying himself as an artist to watch. KYAN’s airy neo-pop vocals combined with smooth genuine R&B beats and metaphoric lyrics provide listeners with a fresh take on pop.
