You may remember Mackenzie Sol as that adorable 4-year-old kid who caught Simon Cowell’s attention on The X-Factor UK. Now he’s 17- years-old with a dope aesthetic and smooth sound that has labeled him the next Justin Bieber. Mackenzie is officially on our radar now that he’s grown up and has a head full of luscious hair that we would kill to run our fingers through. As If the hair wasn't enough, he’s also British. (Hello, hot accent). Sol is the guy that is bringing soul to Gen Z via the music industry. The Englander is about to begin his US tour, where he will connect with his fans across the country. His newest single, Taken (say it isn’t so), will put you in a feel good summer, 'windows-down-road-trip' kinda vibe.
Brace yourselves Pruners, Mackenzie is about to drop a new EP and we are all so eager for our ears to be blessed by his musical genius. Stay tuned for the release date and keep on reading to find out what Mackenzie does when he’s not in the studio.
