Torion Sellers signed to Young Money Cash Money Billionaires (YMCMB) at the age of 13 (now 16) and the grooming period is over for this high energy entertainer. Introduced by Lil Wayne as “…the future,” Torion unleashed the first single from his upcoming EP “Twerk Don’t Hurt” to rousing fanfare and released the official music video this summer. A full service entertainer, Torion has also achieved acclaim as a dancer hitting the national stage with his electrifying dance moves.
Opening with a classroom scene of day dreaming students, “Twerk Don’t Hurt” rapidly explodes with huge sound and production; young Torion handles the track like a seasoned vet. Not your standard “Twerk” video, this one is definitely friendly to all demographics. An EDM version of the song is set for release soon.
With his 2012 “07 Champion” offering setting the tone, Torion has generated co-signs and direct interest from some of the most discerning tastemakers in the industry: From MTV (who placed him on their 2013 “People to Watch” list), to BET’s 106 & Park, to the mega-popular syndicated Power 1OS Breakfast Club radio show, it’s not a question of “if” Torion will explode onto the music scene, it’s a question of “when”.
If that isn t enough, radio stations are courting the young phenom and giving good indicators for their participation in his rise. This combined interest has led to an industry-wide antici pation for his first official single “Twerk Don’t Hurt” complete with music video submission requests from MTV, BET and more.
