Platinum singer and songwriter Quinn XCII’s fifth studio album The People’s Champ is out now. The album features his newest single “Too Late” feat. AJR, one of several collaborations on the record.
“Even five records in, I feel like I still have to fight for my stripes and prove myself,” Quinn XCII admits. “My career, to me, has always felt like an underdog story, so even though the deeper message of the album is to be yourself, I thought ‘The People’s Champ’ was a fitting double entendre that could also represent my view of where I currently stand in the music industry.”
He continues, “‘Too Late’ is about someone who changes in life and passes the point of no return. It’s a bittersweet moment where you can’t go back to who you were. A lot of this record is about gratitude, coming to a place of change, and returning. Over the years, I’ve gotten so many messages to collaborate with AJR. I’m a big fan, and it was a long time coming.”
AJR adds, “‘Too Late,’ for us, is about being loved for something you used to be. And the worry of, ‘if I change and continue to grow, will you not recognize the thing you once loved?’”
The People’s Champ also includes previously released tracks “The Lows,” “Let Me Down” feat. Chelsea Cutler (the artists’ sixth collaboration together), “Common” feat. Big Sean, and “Backpack”. Recently, Quinn XCII delivered an electrifying performance of “The Lows” live for the first time ever on The Late Late Show with James Corden. See the full album tracklisting below.

The People’s Champ follows his 2021 album Change of Scenery II, which debuted #1 on the Apple Pop Charts and Spotify’s US Debut Album Chart. Quinn XCII’s catalogue has amassed over 3.5 billion global streams to date and includes 3 RIAA Platinum and 5 RIAA Gold Singles. Not to mention, he has sold out countless tours, including shows at the iconic Radio City Music Hall in New York City, The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, and many more.
