Francesco Yates – “Call” (NEW Video)

Francesco Yates is an eighteen year-old singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Toronto, Canada signed to Chris Smith Management-21 Music/Atlantic Records. On his debut album, he has enlisted the help of heavy-hitting producers Pharrell Williams and Robin Hannibal of Rye/Quadron (Kendrick Lamar, B.o.B.).


Leading up to the launch of his first single, Yates has already garnered attention from VICE Magazine, NME, MTV, and The Huffington Post to name a few, and has performed with JoJo for The Fader Magazine’s Vitamin Water #Uncapped series.  Francesco’s musical talent is also featured on Pharrell’s critically acclaimed 2014 album, G I R L, as he plays lead guitar on “Gust of Wind” featuring Daft Punk.


The lead single, “Call”, is produced by Robin Hannibal and written by Francesco Yates and Matt Morris. Available on iTunes June 24th. Album coming soon.



Here is what some stars are saying about Francesco Yates already.


“He’s absolutely gonna be just a huge, huge, huge pop star, but not in the way people have been thinking of pop music in the past 10 years” 

– Pharrell Williams


“Francesco is a perfectionist, as you can hear on records and that takes time. There’s \no correction, it’s all live and off the floor. It’s done the traditional, real singing way, where you have to get the perfect take.” 

–  Robin Hannibal


“He is going to shock the world” 

–  Timbaland
