YUNGBLUD Enlists Justin Bieber for a Bar Fight and Might Run for Prime Minister | Quick 6

In anticipation of this year's rapidly approaching Lollapalooza, we have opened up the Ones To Watch vault to uncover a treasure trove of footage from 2018′s festival. So, as we prepare to make our way to Chicago this summer for what might be our favorite festival of the year, join us in reliving some of our favorite moments with some of our favorite up-and-coming artists. And what a better way to start than with a quick interview with YUNGBLUD.

Following a standout performance, which we are still thinking about to this day, we caught up with the rock star in the making at last year's Lollapalooza to chat everything from why he would enlist Justin Bieber in a bar fight, a newfound love for Chicago deep dish pizza, to why pink is the color to rock.  

YUNGBLUD has had nothing short of an explosive year that has seen the English upstart deliver an earth-shattering blend of alternative rock, hip-hop, and punk influences, as well as link up with the likes of fellow alternative heavyweights Halsey and Travis Barker. More than just an ever-growing punk phenomenon, one will find a series of pressing societal and political messages inside the rising artist's infectious guitar-driven amalgamations. YUNGBLUD stands not only at the forefront of tomorrow's rock stars, but as an artist brave enough to shed an unapologetic light on a range of salient issues.

For more from YUNGBLUD, revisit our  "All Eyes On" performance and interview with the artist who stands for today's youth below.
