Earlier this month, he dropped his stunning debut album, blanc, in which the artist described himself as a blank canvas, layered with color by his experiences with the people and places he's encountered in life, and the tour takes the same creative name. The blanc tour officially kicks off on Sep. 4 in Los Angeles, California, and here's everything we learned about JUNNY as our latest Man Crush Monday.
