Capitol CMG's newest pop artist, Kevin Quinn's brand new single "Wildfire" has gone viral. The song has generated over 1 million total streams, 4.7 million music video views, features on TikTok's emerging artists list, and Snapchat's Pop playlist. With a palpable smoothness and synth-forward beat, the hummable track is a purposeful introduction to Quinn as a recording artist.
"I think 'Wildfire' is a metaphor for the light inside us all," says Quinn. "Even when that light gets bleak, there's an element of trust that shapes our outlook, as well as peace that everything happens for a reason. And somehow, knowing that is enough to keep going."
This week Quinn has also released a new Spanish-language version of the synth-forward track entitled "Fuego En Mi Interior." With its catchy hook and refreshing theme, "Fuego En Mi Interior" continues to fuel Quinn's early career as a global artist.
"This song is one of my favorites, so I'm excited to be releasing the Spanish version of 'Wildfire'! I hope my fans love it as much as I do," says Quinn. "Esta canción es una de mis favoritas, ¡así que estoy emocionado de lanzar la versión en Español de 'Fuego En Mi Interior'! Espero que a mis fans les guste tanto como a mí."

"From acting to songwriting, his success is driven by a raw natural talent and incredible work ethic. We are honored to team up with him to help carry his music to his fans and beyond."
