 Critical Praise for SonReal:

“It’s about time you got familiar with the Vancouver rapper who is on his way to becoming one of the biggest rap exports from Canada.” – Noisey

“SonReal’s unique, developed flow allows him to lay out his style of everyman rap successfully.” – The Source

“As always, SonReal’s writing crowd-pleasing hip hop, but The Name EP reveals how good he is at it.” – UnsungSundays

The Song:

With over 60 million streams on Spotify, SonReal inspires his fans with relatable, hooky, and radio-friendly jams. Riding a simple and insidiously catchy piano loop, reminiscent of “Broccoli” or “iSpy,” SonReal revels in the joy of making music on Who Care,” his latest single. A master at crafting infectious choruses with positive messages, SonReal encourages his fans to put their minds to their passions and not give up, no matter what the haters say. Alternating smoothly sung bars with rapidfire flows, SonReal shows off the full breadth of his talents on the track, premiered today by Complex. “Who Care” is the latest single from One Long Dream, SonReal’s upcoming debut album.  Featuring production from Kenneth “Babyface” EdmondsRahki (Kendrick, YG, Schoolboy Q), DJ Kahlil (Dr DreAnderson PaakEminem) and others, and boasting the hit single “Can I Get A Witness?,” One Long Dream releases on August 11th via Black Box Music.

Blessed with a strong work ethic and a hungry fanbase, SonReal is in the middle of a busy Summer ’17. Last week, Billboard premiered SonReal’s video for the bouncy and poignant “Problems.” Earlier, he dropped the video for Potential,” filmed during tour stops in China, and dropped the hard-edged Super Size single. Born in a small town in rural British Columbia, SonReal built a massive legion of fans on the strength of his music videos, his soulful sing-rap style, and his ability to connect emotionally through his songs. The multi-talented artist is one of the most acclaimed and popular rising stars in Canada, earning six Juno Awards nominations and ten nominations and a win at the MuchMusic Video Awards. Making a name for himself in the American market with his energetic live shows, most recently opening for Jon Bellion on his sold out NA Tour and headling his own No Warm Up Tour, SonReal aims to break through to the mainstream with One Long Dream. Boasting the hit single “Can I Get A Witness?,” One Long Dream releases on August 11th

About SonReal:

Born in the small town of Vernon, British Columbia, SonReal is poised to be the next great Canadian export. A YouTube sensation, SonReal’s first video boasted the best talent show sequence since Napoleon Dynamite and racked up over a million plays in the first month. His next mixtape, the Juno-nominated For The Town, continued the visual tradition, including some of the most creative music videos on the web in “Preach,” “For The Town,” and “Woah Nilly.” After completing an American tour and signing to a major label, SonReal began to work on his debut album, One Long Dream. The first single of the project “Can I Get A Witness” was an instant success, achieving platinum status and entering the Top 15 in Canadian pop radio. SonReal immediately jumped onto Jon Bellion’s sold out Human Condition tour, and then headlined his own No Warm Up Tour. Already a 6-time Juno Award nominee and 10-time MMVA nominee, as well as a MMVA winner for Best Music Video of The Year, for “Everywhere We Go,” SonReal is primed for takeover in both Canada and the US.
