Brooklyn’s latest export to the top of the charts comes in the form of a long-haired quirky songster that croons out pop hits worthy of the millions of plays he has garnered. Franke first took over the music world with “Home Alone,” a cemented club smash that was crafted in the comfort of his own abode.
Franke does a special mix of flirtatious trap pop that leaves you lovesick and thinking he is singing right to you. In his video for “pay for LOVE”, premiering today, the song comes alive with the use of vibrant colors, bright lights, and a heartfelt performance.
Check out the video as well as our interview below.
