The UK’s biggest global breakthrough artist of 2016, Jonas Blue, has today unveiled his new single ‘Mama’ feat. Australian singer/songwriter and YouTube sensation William Singe. Platinum hitmaker Jonas’ latest release coincides with the start of his debut European tour, which sees him visit Cologne, Amsterdam and Paris with a full live band, finishing off with a headline show at London’s Heaven next Wednesday, 10th May. ‘Mama’ flaunts a hooky marimba melody and rumbling snares, underpinning Singe’s striking vocal performance. Jonas co-wrote ‘Mama’ with Ed Drewett (Little Mix, One Direction, Olly Murs) and Sam Romans (Disclosure, Mary J Blige, Alicia Keys).

Jonas comments:

Mama is a song about that period of your life when you’re young and carefree, without stress, bills and problems and all you care about is having a good time with your friends every day and night!”

Having sold almost 13 million singles and been streamed two billion times, Jonas Blue is now ready to build on his monumental success in the coming months. His debut single, ‘Fast Car’ became 2016’s biggest-selling single globally from a British debut artist and earned him two BRIT award nominations – ‘British Single’ and ‘British Artist Video’. Jonas’ second single ‘Perfect Strangers’ picked up Platinum sales awards around the globe while his third release ‘By Your Side’ helped launch the career of rising British artist Raye. Overall, Jonas Blue sold more singles in the UK last year than Clean Bandit, Ellie Goulding, Olly Murs and Zayn Malik. He was also the only artist to have two songs included on MTV’s global list of most played videos in 2016. Alongside these accolades, Jonas has just been announced as the next VEVO LIFT artist of 2017, following in the footsteps of Sam Smith, James Bay, Years & Years and Rag N Bone Man. Australian vocalist and YouTube sensation William Singe has rapidly taken the world by storm with over 3 million Facebook followers and counting. Singe developed a massive social following showcasing his vocal talent through video uploads to YouTube, resulting in his being signed to a record deal with RCA Records. William is also a live act to be reckoned with, having toured consistently on nine tours over the last year globally, selling out shows and performing to over 150,000 fans. Following the announcement of his signing with RCA earlier this year, Singe released his debut single “Rush” to much critical acclaim with Forbes naming him one of “5 Alternative R&B Artists To Look Out For In 2017.” Set to become this year’s summer anthem, it’s certain that ‘Mama’ will to add to the excitement surrounding Jonas Blue.

Vigiland – Friday Night

Firmly established as one of the most consistently strong dance acts on the scene right now, Sweden’s Vigiland are set to drop their latest unique sound. Getting released via Universal Sweden, ‘Friday Night’ will land with a bang on April 28th. It’s hard to keep up with the vast success the duo has had on Spotify, with previous releases including ‘UFO,’ ‘Shots & Squats’ and ‘Pong Dance’ racking up hundreds of millions of streams. Vigiland were also asked to perform live at last year’s MTV MIAW Awards in Mexico with the cast of Acapulco Shore.

The inspiration for this brand new track has an interesting backstory, with Vigiland saying of its creation:

“We had a night out in Stockholm a few months ago, and there was a bouncer acting like an a**hole to some guests in the line, and eventually didn’t let them in… We got inspired in the studio the next day and the outcome is ‘Friday Night!”

Featuring some of Vigiland’s signature production traits including driving guitar hooks, highly memorable and utterly infectious lyrics and a punchy bounce/house beat, ‘Friday Night’ is a dancefloor weapon with bite; it will draw you straight in with its narrative story-telling and melodic zing.

Fais – Ask Me Tomorrow

OUT NOW on WALL Recordings – the new single from Fais ‘Ask Me Tomorrow

STREAM IT HERE: https://open.spotify.com/track/3aGnWcq8Y3KCcCsMaHeEJT

Rotterdam talent Fais has seriously impressed with his Afrojack collaborations ‘Used To Have It All’ and ‘Hey’, and he now returns with his first solo track. The glorious new single, ‘Ask Me Tomorrow’, once again marks him out as one to watch.

Fais’ soulful tones glide over swirling, phasing synth chords, with a sharp beat and gentle arpeggios building things up. The chorus adds electric guitar rhythm and uplifting chord progressions as he shows off his vocal range. Topped off with strings playing a counter melody, it’s a great song which you can easily hear being reworked and remixed in spectacular fashion.

With a background of classical piano training to match his dulcet tones and song writing prowess, Fais has all the ingredients needed to make a true pop star. He won a national singing competition in the Netherlands back in 2010 which led to performances at New York’s Apollo Theatre, and since then he’s been collaborating with a range of producers, artists and DJs as a songwriter and vocalist.

With over 200 million streams to his name, an acclaimed MTV EMA performance alongside Afrojack and Ty Dolla $ign and multiple awards including four Platinum Awards, Fais is making big waves. Splitting his time to write songs between his home Rotterdam in The Netherlands and Los Angeles, he is currently working on new music for an EP and an album. With Hey peaking at #2 in the Dutch Top 40 and receiving over a million views a day on YouTube, it’s clear that he is well on the way to becoming a major star.
