Johnny Phrank drops off the new music in “Dirty Diana.”
June 25th marked the 6th anniversary of Michael Jackson’s passing. There’s no doubt MJ influenced countless artists that came after him, includingÂ Johnny Phrank, who commemorates MJ by releasing a song he wrote with Mr. Jackson’s own “Dirty Diana” in mind.Â
Although Phrank’s street-smart approach and darkly seductive style afford him a uniquely identifiable sound of his own, Phrank is often compared toÂ FutureÂ because of his descriptive street narratives, andÂ The Weeknd, because of his silky smooth vocals.Â Â
His latest single, “Dirty Diana,” boasts production from producer Willie B, who is best known for producing Kendrick Lamar’s “Ignorance Is Bliss” and “Rigamortis” from Lamar’sÂ Overly DedicatedÂ andÂ Section 80. The Grammy nominated producer also recently produced “03′ Adolescence” on J. Cole’sÂ Forest Hills DriveÂ album.
