Audacy will support Royel Otis with broadcast and digital airplay, personalized vignettes and exclusive editorial and social media collaborations.

Michael Martin, Audacy SVP/Programming and Head of Music Initiatives said, “We’ve watched Royel Otis explode onto the scene with their original and cover songs over the past few years and are excited to utilize all of the tools LAUNCH provides to help them take it to the next level. Because of radio’s influential power, it remains one of the most reliable sources of music discovery and allows listeners to connect with up-and-coming stars. With LAUNCH, Royel Otis, Muni Long and Kassi Ashton can reach new fanbases and levels of success.”

“Royel Otis is pure, unapologetic and definitive. Their only interest is the level to which they can transport people with their music,” stated Andrew Klippel, Ourness Founder and Artist Manager, Royel Otis. “They’ve grown incredibly over the last two years and remain unaffected!
