payton continues pop-punk rise on ‘Don’t Go’

Rising pop punk star payton is back again with sizzling new single ‘Don’t Go’.

The 17-year-old’s latest track follows a string of 2020 singles including ‘Love Letter‘ and ‘Hard to Breathe’, both enjoying viral success.

On ‘Don’t Go’ payton tackles a toxic relationship with a candour that packs a punch, fast becoming a trademark for the young star.

“‘Don’t Go’ is basically about a toxic relationship I was recently in,” payton shares.

“In the first verse, you can hear what I was going through in lyrics like, ‘you say you hate me, you can’t take it’.”

“It’s based on all the negativity in this relationship. As the song progresses, it drops in the chorus saying, ‘I need this person in my life as much as they mess me up.”

Named as one of CelebMix’s Rising Online Artists 2020, the singer has wasted no time building on a fanbase of millions across social media platforms such as TikTok and Instagram, converting them to music fans lapping up his every release.

For fans of Post Malone and Machine Gun Kelly, payton is fast becoming a pop punk prodigy with hit after hit. In May he spoke to CelebMix about his influences and dreams for his music career.

The sky is the limit for this budding rockstar.

‘Don’t Go’ is streaming now.
