Led by US radio Top 40 single ‘Heaven’, Loverboy (The Heartthrob Edition) shares the classic tale of queer love and heartbreak. The record is packed with infectious yet heartfelt hooks; this project solidifies McCoppin as a trailblazer in the next generation of pop.
In 2021, McCoppin made his official US radio debut with ‘Heaven’ the lead single from the forthcoming project. Ten weeks after Nicolas McCoppin’s initial chart introduction, “Heaven” broke Top 40 on the Mediabase Activator Chart at #40 with national radio, fan support, and 200,000 on-demand streams. ‘Heaven’ continues to climb higher each week with rave reviews from station programmers across the US.

When you take a new generation of young, queer producers and writers, and pair them with industry veterans like Bonnie McKee (Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Kesha), the result is a project like Loverboy (The Heartthrob Edition), the future of pop. ‘Dancing on the Moon’, (written w/ Bonnie McKee) is slated for a post-album single release, backed by his most ambitious promotion to date.
In support of the upcoming release, McCoppin will be headlining Breaking Sound NYC at Berlin Under A, with further show dates TBA.

(Ascribe Magazine)”, "a rising figure in the LGBTQ community as the next major pop artist to watch,” (Instinct Magazine), and a “smooth pop hottie” (Queerty).
