The 21-year-old half Māori & Samoan L.A based artist, ALEX AIONO, who plays half a dozen instruments has amassed a following of millions creating his own “flipped” versions of popular songs, including his mashup of Drake’s “One Dance” and Nicky Jam’s “Hasta el Amanecer”. This has gone on to accumulate more than 58 million views and prompted The FADER to state, “Alex Aiono is the shockingly good YouTube singer the world actually needs”. AIONO currently has reached over half a billion views with 2.4 million Instagram followers, 5 million YouTube subscribers and 2.3m Facebook page likes.
Earlier this year, AIONO released his own music, “Work The Middle” and “Question,” to great acclaim and collaborated with German DJ Felix Jaehn on the track “Hot2Touch” which spent three weeks at #1 in Germany and has since been certified gold. Collectively, “Work the Middle,” “Question” and “Hot2Touch” have gained over 118 million streams.
Having spent most of this year on the road touring, AIONO has been in the studio happily working on his debut album for Interscope Records. With a digital fan base of over 12 Million active followers and subscribers and averaging a million views per day on his YouTube channels, most impressive is how engaged AIONO’S fans are with every concert, song, image and post, finding refuge in his energy. This is AIONO’S first time performing in our part of the world.
