Jonas Blue debuts the official video for his latest anthem “Rise” featuring vocals from Jack & Jack. Quickly dubbed as a “summer smash” by Idolator, “Rise” has amassed over 17 million global streams in just three weeks. The video, which was shot in Lisbon and features appearances by Jonas and Jack & Jack, can be viewed HERE.
The breakout U.K. artist/producer began work on the song after hearing the U.S. duo interviewed on a Los Angeles radio station. Jack & Jack are a phenomenon in their own right: having risen to fame on Vine before turning to music, the childhood friends have a combined 85 million followers on social media.
“Rise” has all the hallmarks of a Jonas Blue summer smash. A breezy flute riff gives way to the signature piano chords, snare rolls and pitched vocal samples, which steer into an exhilarating electronic synth drop. Billboard calls the song a “feel-good house-pop tune,” while Dancing Astronaut declares it “bright and bouncy.” Download / stream “Rise” HERE.
Jonas Blue will kick off a summer residency at Hï Ibiza, the new high tech superclub in Ibiza, on June 24. A four-time BRIT Award nominee, he has amassed over four billion cumulative streams and 25 million single sales globally. “Fast Car,” his breakthrough single featuring Dakota, reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart. It went Platinum in the U.S. and has a total of 39 Platinum certifications worldwide. Subsequent singles “Perfect Strangers” and “Mama” are both certified Gold in the States. Jonas, who has recently remixed songs for Sigrid and James Bay, is currently setting up his own record label, Blue Future. Debut signings will be announced soon.
