Musical Artists John Concepcion and Miles B. took a Twitter trend and just turned into a smooth upbeat R&B banger. Red flags have been trending on Twitter recently, and these two talented artists decided to take that concept and ride with it for their song "Red Flag."

John and Miles put the track on their socials, and it has people asking for a full release on all major platforms. One Instagram user commented, "Not putting it on Spotify is a ?" and we couldn't agree more with that statement. So, for now, let's run up these numbers on Tik Tok and Instagram until it officially releases.

By the way, if you think John looks familiar, you probably have seen some of his viral covers on Youtube and or have come across his Spotify Page. He's also dropping a new song this month called "Spooky Link," right in time for Halloween.

About John Concepion

John Concepcion is a 25-year-old R&B artist from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. He got his start in music at a tender age when his dad taught a young John to play the guitar. It was at this point that John’s father encouraged him to develop his voice and talent. In Junior High, John found himself rapping, being influenced by artists including Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and Lil Wayne. During his early years of high school, John began to build a name for himself amongst his peer group, furthering his introduction into the world of break dancing and hip hop competitions.

At the age of 15, John decided that his next move was to be a singer. He focused his energy on honing his craft, so much so that by the age of 17 John was invited to New York by Sony Music to audition for multiple boy bands. John's influences include modern-day legends such as Chris Brown, Bruno Mars, Ty Dolla $ign, Usher, and Justin Bieber. With early beginnings on YouTube creating covers and releasing original material, John has grown his YouTube channel to boast over 61,000 subscribers. His cover of Justin Bieber‘s single, “Yummy,” reached Justin himself and is surpassing 700,000 views. John’s self-released singles and EP have crossed 1.2 million streams on Spotify alone.
