MP3: @JohnnyPhrank - Dirty Diana [Prod. @IchibanDon]

Yesterday marked the 6th anniversary of Michael Jackson's passing!!!

There's no doubt MJ influenced countless artists that came after him, including Johnny Phrank, who commemorates MJ by releasing a song he wrote with Mr. Jackson's own "Dirty Diana" in mind.

Although Phrank's street-smart approach & darkly seductive style afford him a uniquely identifiable sound of his own, Phrank is often compared to Future because of his descriptive street narratives, and The Weeknd, because of his silky smooth vocals.

His latest single, "Dirty Diana", boasts production from producer Willie B, who is best known for producing Kendrick Lamar's "Ignorance Is Bliss" & "Rigamortis" from Lamar's 'Overly Dedicated' & 'Section 80'. The Grammy-nominated producer also recently produced "03' Adolescence" on J. Cole's '2014 Forest Hills Drive' album.

Give it a listen below, and find out why Johnny Phrank is the next big smooth crooner in music.
