Following Baby Keem as the second artist to partner with pgLang, Tanna Leone is eager to make his mark: “As an artist I want to represent disrupting the status quo, push people to focus on their growth as humans, and to be a voice for the voiceless through my artistry.” Tanna Leone joins Baby Keem on the second installment of his “The Melodic Blue” Tour beginning tonight (March 10) in Pittsburgh, PA.

“We’re excited to welcome Tanna Leone and pgLang to the Def Jam family as valued partners,” said Tunji Balogun, chairman and CEO, Def Jam Recordings. “I’m lucky to have been able to connect with Kendrick and Dave during the early stages of my career as friends and collaborators, and I’m thrilled to be able to extend that relationship here at Def Jam. Tanna is a dynamic and multi-talented new voice and we’re honored to be a part of his development and success.”
