Apple Music Selects Pink Sweat$ As An "Up Next" Artist

The Philly singer sat down with Zane Lowe.

(AllHipHop News) Rising R&B performer Pink Sweat$ is the latest act to be named Apple Music's Up Next artist. The "Honesty" vocalist follows H.E.R., Summer Walker, Tierra Whack, and other musicians as an Up Next alum.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of Apple Music’s esteemed Up Next program,” says Pink Sweat$. “Music is my way to spread love and positivity and Apple helps me reach fans across the globe. As an emerging singer, songwriter, and producer this recognition means so much to me as I continue to share my music with the world."

Records by Pink Sweat$ have been prominently featured on Apple Music’s top R&B playlists since last August. An exclusive Up Next short shot entirely on an iPhone XS will be available on April 30. In addition, the Philadelphian sat down for an interview with Apple Music Global Creative Director and Beats 1 host Zane Lowe.

“Philadelphia is having a moment with Tierra Whack and now Pink Sweat$, who we are proud to announce as our latest Apple Music Up Next artist,” states Lowe. “This incredible artist’s vision is front and center, yet the music itself is right now super reduced and low key. His performance, vocal, and songwriting is front and center where it belongs, and it captures people’s attention in a big way. We look forward to seeing the rise of this talented songwriter-turned-artist as he continues to captivate hearts and minds around the world.”

Pink Sweat$ will make his late-night television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on May 7. The Volume 1 and Volume 2 EP creator is headlining the "Pink Beginnings Tour" this summer.
