Fronz of Attila is the ultimate 2015 rock star. There are no ifs, ands, or buts about it. He literally embodies everything that a larger-than-life stage presence should be, and he’s got the following to prove it. Even his record sales back it up with Attila’s 2014 offering, Guilty Pleasure, moving over 18,500 charts first-week and its predecessor About That Life landing at #22 on the Billboard Top 200. However, these aren’t the only reasons. In fact, the reasons are countless.
You don’t know who sings for The Black Keys or Kings of Leon. If someone had a gun to your head, you couldn’t name a member of Alt-J. That’s okay. One glimpse of Fronz visually or aurally, and you never forget him. That’s what makes a real rock star. You’ve got to have that swagger. You know who’s got it—rappers like Lil Wayne, A$AP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q (a Fronz favorite), and the like. Rockstars don’t have it anymore. Fronz is bringing it back in the same way Justin Timberlake brought sexy back, but better.
So, ARTISTdirect.com editor in chief Rick Florino decided to give Five Reasons why Fronz is the Ultimate 2015 Rock Star. Without other further nonsense, we’re going to let you read why below. You’re going to agree. If not, Fronz might have an expletive or three for you…
Five Reasons Fronz is the Ultimate 2015 Rock Star
5. Fronz engenders true fandom. Numbers don’t lie. The man has 209K Instagram followers, 173K Twitter followers, and 262K Facebook “likes.” This is outside of Attila’s properties. Attila has 674K Facebook “likes,” 156K Twitter followers, and 102K Instagram followers. They’ve also got countless YouTube views. In this day and age, metrics mean more than record sales. Billboard is even changing to reflect that. Fronz is leading.
4. Fronz’s influence extends outside of music. We’re talking about a budding, buzzing entrepreneur who launched his own app, Spur, and his own Stay Sick clothing line. He’s turning into hard rock’s Diddy or Dr. Dre.
