Ian Grey Out of Hiatus with New Single

May 4, 2019

The first time I heard of Ian Grey, it was two years ago. I was watching Dance Moms when a commercial for a new show, The Pop Game, came on.

Based on Anna Todd's best-selling fan fiction that became a sensation on the social storytelling platform Wa...

My parents are also big fans of music, so they started heavily influencing my taste in music and provi...
