iann dior Essentials
Sashaying onto the scene in 2019 with the insouciance of a 20-something with nothing to lose, iann dior combines humility and ambition in his very name—a lowercase grab at the good things in life. But it’s his easy authenticity that makes emo-rap fans so crazy for the Puerto Rico-born, Corpus Christi-raised artist, whose collaboration with 24kGoldn, “Mood,” parked at the top of the Billboard charts in 2020. (Justin Bieber and J Balvin jumped on the remix.) Like his late hero Juice WRLD, he makes his melancholia sound strangely alluring, whether he’s describing doomed love (“gone girl”) or existential pain (“emotions”).
