Art pop powerhouse Poppy is teaming up with HIFI Labs to craft her own 8-bit universe. The upcoming app PoppySphere will allow fans to feel connected with the star in their own virtual world.
Fans of Poppy Will Have Their Own Virtual Universe
PoppySphere gives fans a constantly changing world to explore; with dynamic rooms and secrets for them to find. All, as they navigate a realm of Poppy’s own iconoclastic creation. Users can customize their own avatar and text chat as they plumb the depths of Poppy’s virtual space; playing games and making connections with fellow Poppy fans everywhere.
“I am over enjoyed to be launching my very own Metaverse!” Poppy says. “A fully customizable virtual space to hang out and talk with the PoppySphere one on one. The possibilities are endless so, make yourself at home.”
Upon launch, fans will have a chance to actively shape the PoppySphere; working alongside Poppy to build and customize this new interactive world. Fans can submit music for different rooms, games for the arcade, featured wall art to provide decor, or even design whole rooms. Featured content might even earn creators exclusive gifts.

An Exciting Step For Everyone
PoppySphere comes in the wake of the new album Flux; the focus of the first-ever Listening Party held on Roblox. The GRAMMY nominee played and chatted alongside the platform’s millions of users; as her music became part of the soundscape for a full weekend. Now, PoppySphere players can immerse themselves in Poppy’s one-of-a-kind aesthetic anytime they want.
For HIFI Labs, assembling radical new tools for artists and keeping them in the driver’s seat, as they reach out to their audiences is a matter of principle. “We’re really interested in the true direct-to-fan connection,” CEO Joe Barham says. “We love working with artists who view the cutting edge as an opportunity. Our focus is on helping artists build their own platforms, to create the best possible relationship with fans.”
PoppySphere is available for download on iOS and Android devices now.
