Riot Games Introduces Boy Band “Heartsteel” Under Riot Games Music Label
Riot Games has unveiled its latest musical project under the Riot Games Music label, and this time it takes the form of a boy band called Heartsteel. The group consists of popular League of Legends characters Ezreal, Kayn, Aphelios, Yone, K’Sante, and Sett, and they have just released their first single, “Paranoia”.
Heartsteel’s music is a result of an exciting collaboration with international artists from different genres. Baekhyun from K-pop group EXO and SuperM provides the vocals for Ezreal, while Los Angeles rapper Cal Scruby lends his voice to Kayn. Taiwanese-American R&B and Mandopop artist ØZI takes on the role of Sett, the rapper and co-leader of the group. The other members include Tobi Lou as K’Sante, Yone as the producer, and Aphelios as the instrumentalist and songwriter.
Riot Games has previously achieved success with virtual music groups like K/DA, a K-pop-style group composed of female champions from League of Legends. Following in the footsteps of this success, Heartsteel aims to captivate fans with its all-male lineup. Since its debut in 2018, K/DA has released multiple singles and an EP, including their platinum-certified debut single “POP/STARS”. Riot Games Music has also created other virtual acts, such as True Damage and Pentakill.
In addition, each member of Heartsteel will receive a new skin, which will be available in League of Legends and Wild Rift starting from November 8. Fans can also look forward to a live performance of “Paranoia” by Heartsteel at the League of Legends 2023 World Championship finals on November 19.
