Dance sensation YvngSwag reveals how he stays focused on his goals -- and more!

Rapper and musician YvngSwag is someone you need to keep on your radar.

This up-and-coming artist has already made a name for himself on social media, with over 1 million followers and millions of video views on his unique dance videos.

At just 17, YvngSwag is trying to change the dance game by performing hip-hop style dance routines to non-hip hop music genres, like his viral hit for "Big Green Tractor."

Not only that, but he's on the verge of releasing a new EP, and already dropped his "Fall in Love" single, with a music video coming soon!

Who has been the biggest inspiration in your life?

Nick Cannon and Michael Jackson

How do you stay focused on your goals and keep up with your videos and dancing?

My dad makes us write down every year our goals on a sheet of paper and put it up on our wall. He told me that the people who write down their goals, achieve them more than the people who just set a goal in mind. If you have them in front of you every day, it helps you strive for it more.

What is your go-to comfort food?

Tacos!

What is your favorite album of all time?

Probably "Royalty" by Chris Brown

If you could tour anywhere, where would you want to go?

Overseas, to Europe.

What's next for you? Whats coming up for you?

I'm excited for my EP dropping. I want to give my fans music they can listen to in the car, and vibe out to and just feel released and have a happy vibe. I want to make people smile and make videos like I do.
