Poplyfe (also stylized in all caps) is a teen pop band from Oakland, California, that was a contestant on season 6 of America's Got Talent. They finished in fourth place on the show after performing a medley by Queen[1][2][3][4] in the finals.

The band's members are Kehlani Parrish, Dylan Wiggins, Jaden Wiggins and Ali-Khan Lochin. They have featured various musicians and vocalists, including Zendaya, Gabi Wilson, Denzel Merrit, Dillon Ingram, Cole Berliner, Jared Anderson and Chasity Hinson.[4] On America's Got Talent, their performers ranged in age from 13 to 18.[5] Both Dylan and Jaden Wiggins are sons of producer D'wayne Wiggins, a member of Tony! Toni! Toné! and Poplyfe's producer.[5][6] Lochin is a cousin of the Wiggins brothers.[7] Most of the group's members are students at Oakland School for the Arts.[6]

Poplyfe toured with Disney's Shake It Up star Zendaya on her Swag It Out Tour.[8]

Poplyfe member Kehlani Parrish left PopLyfe soon after the end of America's Got Talent due to several managerial and contractual disputes.
