MusicRow Podcast Episode 4: Who Is Fancy


Millions of people will be asking one thing after Dancing With the Stars tonight: “Who is Fancy?”

MusicRow already knows the answer. Owner/publisher Sherod Robertson sits down with the Nashville-based pop singer and songwriter Who Is Fancy in this week’s podcast episode.

Today, the Republic Records artist releases his irresistible new single, “Boys Like You,” which features pop sensations Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor.

His memorable first single, “Goodbye,” arrived earlier this year under a cloak of mystery. Without revealing its creator’s identity, the song caught fire online, with three separate videos going viral and racking up nearly 20 million cumulative streams over the course of the year. He then enjoyed a high-profile reveal on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, finally unveiling his face, as well as his undeniable charisma.

Fancy has an impressive industry powerhouse team consisting of Scott Borchetta‘s Big Machine Label Group, Dr. Luke‘s Prescription Songs, manager Scooter Braun and booking agent CAA. He just wrapped up an extremely successful string of dates supporting Grande and will be revealing tour plans and more news soon.

In this podcast episode, we talk with the artist about how he became known as Fancy, why the Arkansas native moved to Nashville to follow a dream, and the importance of being true to yourself and finding your purpose within.

Who Is Fancy will be joined by Grande and Trainor to perform “Boys Like You” tonight (Nov. 23) on Dancing With The Stars two-night finale at 7pm CST on ABC .
