West Coast bedroom-pop artist Jawny has been making clever, tongue-in-cheek lo-fi tracks since his early days as Johnny Utah. However, things have blown up recently – his track “Honeypie” (allegedly about ex-girlfriend Doja Cat) went viral on TikTok and has racked up over 180 million streams on Spotify, bringing him a huge new fanbase and millions more streams with his other tracks.
