The legendary English rockstar, Elton John, recently posted a series of videos and photos on his Instagram account and praised the young artist named The Kid Laroi by saying that he‘s one of the most successful musicians of the present day.
There is no doubt that Elton John is one of the most accomplished and famous rockstars of all time. Even though he’s mostly famous for his successful music career, his great efforts to raise awareness on important matters and his unending support for charity organizations were congratulated by Queen Elizabeth II, who knighted Elton John in 1998.
Sir Elton John’s music career started back in 1962 and he is such an influential star in the rock world that his views and opinions on contemporary music have always been of utmost importance. Thus, his latest Instagram post considering a Gen Z musician, The Kid Laroi, who was a guest on Elton John’s Rocket Hour show was very interesting.
The Kid Laroi is a 17-year-old musician who has been leading a career in music since 2015. However, he achieved mainstream success in 2020 after collaborating with famous artists such as Lil Tecca, Juice Wrld, and many more. His music fits numerous genres such as rap–rock, Hip Hop, R&B, pop-punk, and emo rap.
The Kid Laroi was Sir Elton John’s guest on the rockstar’s Rocket Hour show which aires on Apple Music, during which Laroi talked about his career in music and his debut mixtape ‘F*ck Love‘ which was released in the summer of 2020 and ranked Number 3 on the US Billboard 200 chart.
Here’s what Elton John said in the video:
“Hi, I’m Elton John. This my Rocket Hour on Apple Music and today I’m very excited because I’m calling one of the biggest artists in the world right now. The Kid Laroi, he’s going to be a guest on my show. I’m just about to call him right now. Here we go.”
This is what he said in the caption of his recent Instagram post:
