Everything You Need to Know About 'Crazy Devotion' Singer-Songwriter Quinton Griggs
With viral hits including "Chaos!" and "Crazy Devotion," it's clear that 18-year-old singer-songwriter and TikTok sensation Quinton Griggs is already making his mark on the music world—and we firmly believe he's just getting started.
You might not have guessed it, but Quinton was actually a talented football player who had dreams of going pro before an injury sidelined him. As he recovered, he started making TikToks—and the rest is history.
Today, Quinton is known not only for his music, but also for his eye-catching fashion sense. It fuses pop-punk rawness with elements of '70s and '80s glam rock, which shine through in both his music and his bold sense of style. Each of his songs is deeply personal and close to his heart while also striking a chord with his devoted fans. It's no surprise, then, that Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz has quickly become a fan and supporter, even co-writing "Crazy Devotion" with him. We can't wait to see what he does next—and here's everything we learned about him as our latest Man Crush Monday.
