If you listen to artists like Prospect, Lil Baby or Machine Gun Kelly, you’ve heard songs by Iann Dior. After landing at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with fellow Gen-Z star 24kgoldn with the hit single “Mood,” Dior is sure to be one of the top artists of the coming decade.

While many fans enjoy the hip hop aspect of Dior’s tunes, the artist consistently taps into the sounds of pop, rock, R&B, and even funk. Dior has something for everyone, including those who don’t typically listen to his genre.  

Many of Dior’s songs have a positive energy that is unmatched anywhere in the field. Songs like “Paradise” and “Good Day” from my favorite album, “I’m Gone”, come with a rush of positive vibes.

In an interview with New Musical Express, Dior reflected on his role in modern music.

I would say I’m picking up where Juice Wrld left off,” he said. “Some of my songs in this new album, it’s inevitable for you to listen to it and just feel good. I want to tap into the youth and I want them to feel good about themselves.
