Watch Poppy Perform At WWE NXT Takeover: Portland

Poppy performed her track Fill The Crown at NXT Takeover in Portland

Last night, the genre-defying enigma Poppy opened the show at WWE NXT: Takeover Portland.

Held in front of a capacity crowd at the Moda Center, the metal-meets-kawaii-meets-industrial-meets-everything artist opened the night with her track Fill The Crown – taken from her latest full-length I Disagree – while a promo video for the event aired overhead.

This isn’t the first time Poppy has been involved in NXT. On the Halloween edition last year, she performed the title track from I Disagree to kick off the show, and played Io Shirai to the ring with her track Scary Mask.

Poppy’s track METAL was also included on WWE’s 2K20 video game, alongside songs by Bring Me The Horizon, Misfits and Mötley Crüe.

Speaking to Kerrang! earlier this year, Poppy explained that despite her sound, she doesn’t consider herself metal.

“A lot of people who have written about the new music have said it’s metal and pop, but I think that’s because they like the juxtaposition of that,” she said.

“I’ve never said my music is metal, but I do listen to that music. To clarify: post-genre. Or prog rock or pop. We’re turning a new page.”
