Conan Gray Scores Second Top 10 on Billboard 200
Dominating the cultural conversation worldwide, platinum-selling singer-songwriter, and Gen Z pop king Conan Gray has delivered one of the most critically acclaimed records of 2022 with his sophomore studio album, Superache. Beyond inciting widespread tastemaker applause, the new album lands Gray his second Top 10 album on the Billboard 200 debuting at #9 on the chart.
Gray graced the June 2022 cover of Paper Magazine and the cover of The New York Times Arts section just last week. He also recently sat down for a candid interview about Superache on NPR’s “Weekend Edition.” Not to mention, Rolling Stone raved, “Conan Gray has many many feelings — and manages them quite impressively on Superache” while labeling him “one of youth culture’s leading miserabilists.” In addition, UPROXX named him “one of pop’s most vulnerable hitmakers.” Nylon highlighted how the record “marks a new era for the pre-eminent Gen Z pop star,” and Billboard hailed him as “a new-school pop star.” All Music summed it up perfectly, “in the best sense of the term, he's a pop star.”
Taking over television, he graced the stage of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon performing “Disaster” from the new album. He also brought the masses to 30 Rock with a concert performance on the TODAY Show Summer Concert Series, including singles “Memories” and “People Watching.”
Bringing the record to life on stage later to this year, Gray will return to the road for his biggest headline world tour yet. He will start the Superache Tour in North America before heading to Australia and New Zealand, kicking off on September 16 in Louisville, KY at The Louisville Palace Theater. He will visit major markets coast-to-coast including Chicago’s Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island and the iconic Greek Theater in Los Angeles. Also look out for him performing at numerous music festivals along the way, including Music Midtown, Firefly, and Austin City Limits before he tour concludes on October 25 in Las Vegas, NV at Brooklyn Bowl.
