Frankie Zulferino Is The Next Big Recording Artist Drawing Influence from Elvis Presley, Bruno Mars and More

If you were to pass Frankie Zulferino on the street, even if you had no idea who he was, he would leave a lasting impression in your mind. He’s noticeably handsome and well-maintained. His eyes are like two oceans you’d want to be capsized in for an extended time.

Dominating the “emerging artists” chart on TikTok is one of many things Frankie Zulferino has been blazing his trail through. Being a longtime fan of Elvis Presley himself, Frankie covered a beloved song by the King of Rock and Roll and created a fun, energetic video as a nod to the late legend. It leaves you craving more. Frankie shows off his sweet moves and some familiar favorites made famous by “The King” himself. Singing and dancing are two of Frankie’s ultimate strong suits. Janet Jackson and Paula Abdul are highly acclaimed supporters of the singer’s talents.

Frankie also has a hit single entitled “Hit That.” The single features rap/R&B artist Melii. The single flew up to number three on the Apple Music Charts and garnered 600,000 views on YouTube. A short while after the release of “Hit That,” Frankie released a dance single entitled “Die For You,” which made its way to number two on Apple Music’s US Dance Charts. After releasing his EP, “Growing Pains,” the album topped number two on US Pop. In July this year, he will release a few songs from his upcoming album. The whole album will be available in October 2022.

Music has always been something meant for Frankie. Being a former member of the pop boy band WOW was undoubtedly a stepping stone to his solo career. Performing under the moniker Frankie Presley, he eventually pursued a solo career around 21. Frankie wrote his first solo song, I Found You, in 2012 and has opened up for musical artists such as Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Jason Derulo and Sean Kingston.

“I have always believed in dreaming big and aiming high with my goals, but seeing my new video touch so many people so fast is more than I could have imagined.”

Frankies’ solo career started gaining popularity after joining the CW’s music competition show The Next. As a contestant, his mentor happened to be Joe Jonas, who knows a thing or two about going from a boy band to a solo sensation.

Frankie wishes for his music to be some positive influence in a cynical world. Judging from his Instagram, Frankie’s Mom is a huge positive influence in his life and his career. Multiple posts thank his Mom for her “unconditional love” and seemingly undying support. It’s beautiful that his Mom seems to be his rock and his most substantial supporter! Frankie shows his love for his family on Instagram. A collection of his photos with his Mom show they’re both all smiles.

In the words of Elvis Presley himself, “I figure all any kid needs is hope and the feeling he or she belongs. If I could do or say anything that would give some kid that feeling, I would believe I had contributed something to the world.”
 
That’s all Frankie Zulferino has his heart set out to do. Frankie tells us, “I’m not making music for an app, I’m making music for the world.”
