Like a great gumbo, Champagne presents a little bit of many flavors in his songs where he blends hip-hop, country, hook-heavy pop and hard rock.

In what is now a viral post on social media, the Doggfather himself warned the World that Justin Champagne is coming, putting us all on notice of the next evolution of this incredibly talented artist.

On the heels of these career changing opportunities, Champagne just finished recording a remix of his song “If She Ain’t Country”  with international icon Snoop Dogg. Stay tuned for release date and more information on the highly anticipated release.

About Justin Champagne
Born and raised in south Louisiana, Justin Champagne makes genre-bending music rooted in the sounds, stories, and swampy swagger of his home turf. It’s a soundtrack for Louisiana’s small towns and muddy backroads — a gumbo of hip-hop, country, hook-heavy pop, and hard rock, glued together by a hometown hero who raps and sings not only about his own experience, but also about the country lifestyles of his neighbors in the Deep South and beyond.

Champagne has been releasing new music over the past couple of months including the vibey and sure to make you dance “I’m The One,” latin remix featuring El Taiger, the sultry break-up anthem “Refill,” and the much anticipated EP IF SHE AIN’T COUNTRY.

Everything changed in 2016, when Justin Champagne wrote “Sun Goes Down.” A breakup anthem filled with hip-hop beats, countrified guitar riffs, soaring vocal hooks, and rhythmic rapping, “Sun Goes Down” was the first song to embrace the full range of Justin’s musical tastes. By combining a variety of different sounds together, he created something new: a boundary-breaking genre that showcased not only the depth of his influences, but also his versatility as a songwriter, storyteller, vocalist, and rapper. Unsurprisingly, the song became a hit, earning more than a million listens on Spotify and laying the foundation for a unique, trendsetting career.

Champagne’s full-length debut, Small Town Sentiments, was released in 2018. Tracks like “Beers” and “In Them Jeans” became fan favorites, introducing a growing audience to Justin’s sound. Things accelerated once again in 2019, when Justin teamed up with hip-hop artist Gabe G to record the wildly-popular “BackRoads.” A tribute to rural living and the great outdoors, “BackRoads” earned Justin a dedicated following not only on Spotify, but also on YouTube, where the song’s music video — shot in the mud bogs, fields, lakes, and country lanes of his home state — amassed 5 million views during its first year. The song was an anthem for small-town residents across America, but it was personal, too, grounded in the experience of a musician who has always preferred country roads to city streets.
