For the first time ever, Monster Energy Outbreak Tour, the leader in showcasing the biggest new names in music each year, is now set to launch a virtual series customized for fans during quarantine: Monster Energy Outbreak Presents: LIVE ON LOCATION. Debuting TONIGHT, May 29th, LIVE ON LOCATION consists of nine episodes each featuring top breakout hip hop talent performing from various locations with enhanced production direct from the artist. Taking place on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 8pm EST / 5pm PST, over three consecutive weekends in May and June LIVE ON LOCATION will be on Monster Energy’s YouTube channel located here: youtube.com/monsterenergy.
Rising R&B/pop sensation DaniLeigh will kick things off from her garage in L.A. for the first LIVE ON LOCATION stop as she celebrates the release of her new single, “Dominican Mami,” on Friday, May 29th. The Dominican-American singer, dancer, and rapper exploded onto the scene at just 18 years old when she directed the music video for Prince’s single “Breakfast Can Wait.” Known for her fiery choreography, DaniLeigh debuted on the Rolling Stone list of Top 25 Breakthrough Music Artists in 2019 after earning gold with her breakthrough single, “Lil Bebe.”
The opening weekend will continue with Puerto Rico native singer/rapper Iann Dior performing live from an L.A. rooftop on Saturday, May 30th and Curtis Roach, the viral breakout sensation of quarantine, on Sunday, May 31st live from the studio in Detroit.
Iann Dior unleashed his debut album, Industry Plant, last year and hasn’t stopped since, recently releasing his single “Sick and Tired” – a collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker, which debuted at number 3 on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs chart, while racking up 4.5 million first-week streams. His new EP, I’m Gone, arrives on Friday, June 5th. Meanwhile, rapper Curtis Roach’s ubiquitous “Bored in the House” has set the media ablaze, earning the distinction of quarantine anthem.
