The past three years’ incarnations of Devilpalooza have lived up to the high expectations of lively crowds, talented performers and insane energy.
Following this year’s artist announcement on Jan. 16, there was a mix of hype and confusion over the choice to have Quinn XCII to perform.
Quinn XCII, born Mikael Temrowski, began writing and recording his own music in 2011 during his time at Michigan State University. He released his debut EP, "Change of Scenery," in 2015. Since then, Quinn XCII has put out one EP, two studio albums and various singles, with "From Michigan With Love" peaking at 90 on theBillboard 200 chart.
For all those unfamiliar with the Detroit-born singer, including myself, here is your go-to guide to get informed and pumped before snagging your tickets to the must-see concert of the spring.
'Love Me Less'
This is arguably Quinn XCII’s most known song, gaining over 100 million streams on Spotify and reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart. He lends his rap skills to this fast-paced bop alongside singer-songwriter MAX. The soulful beats and occasional falsettos set this apart from most pop love songs today. You can’t help but start dancing whenever you hear the first piano chords strike.
