Artist to Watch 2020: Layton Greene

Another year calls for more of our favorite artists. Whether they’re new or they’ve been in the game for a while, these are the artists that have caught our eye and have made our “Artists to Watch” list in 2020. Today, we’re all about Layton Greene!

I’ve been through some stuff, but I couldn’t go to my mother with my problems. I just adapted to what I was going through. I try to find the light in every situation.

Age: 21

Hometown: East St. Louis, Illinois

Song we can’t get enough of: Leave Em Alone

You’ll love Layton if you like:  Summer Walker, Queen Naija

Now you know: When people would ask her to sing as a little kid, Layton would always choose to cover “Love” by Keyshia Cole.

Why she’s on our “Must Listen” list: It’s not every day that a musician goes viral, but Layton Greene is different. In 2017, Layton became an overnight star after posting a cover of Kodak Black’s “Roll in Peace.” Thanks to this hit, Layton gained a fan base and a label almost instantly! It’s hard to believe that this R&B sensation didn’t make it past the first round of The X-Factor auditions when she was 12. Without a doubt, Layton is a star; however, before her success, Layton didn’t have it easy. From living out of a motel to running away before she turned 18; Layton’s life was tough. Despite all this, Layton was able to climb the ranks in 2019 and we are certain that she’ll continue to do so in 2020!
