Canadian Singer-Songwriter Francesco Yates To Present
Canadian singer-songwriter Francesco Yates will return to the iHeartRadio MMVAs as a presenter.
Armed with a collection of bright, funky R&B-coated pop melodies made to get people dancing, the 22-year-old Toronto native has been busy perfecting his upcoming debut album, which is due out at the end of this summer.
His self-titled EP was released back in September 2015 and was co-produced by Robin Hannibal (Kendrick Lamar, B.o.B) and 10-time Grammy award winner Pharrell Williams. Yates plans to make his debut LP more of a solo endeavor with writing, producing, and performing most of the new music entirely by himself.
Most recently, Yates joined pop icon Justin Timberlake as the opening act on the Canadian leg of his Man Of The Woods Tour.
In addition to Francesco Yates, today’s presenter announcement also includes Madison Beer, Sofi Tukker, Scott Helman, NEW CITY, The Reklaws, Tyler Shaw, Craig McMorris, and Jus Reign.
The 2018 iHeartRadio MMVAs hosted by Awkwafina go down Sunday, August 26 at 9/7MT on CTV and Much.
