Jamie N Commons “Won’t Let Go” Music Video

British singer/songwriter Jamie N Commons releases the video for his latest single “Won’t Let Go” today.   “Won’t Let Go” was written by Commons and produced by Sam De Jong and is available now at all digital retailers.  Commons is currently in the midst of a tour opening for Jacob Banks (see remaining tour dates below). 

Born in Bristol in the late 80s and following that with a stint in Chicago, Commons returned to England set on a music career studying at Goldsmiths in London, notorious for its host of luminary alumni.  Commons released The Baron EP in 2011 followed by his KIDinaKORNER/Interscope debut Rumble And Sway EP in 2013 showcasing his whiskey-laced growl.  Commons’ workmanlike approach has been fed further by the work he’s doing for others. Among his successes, he co-wrote the hit “Jungle” for X Ambassadors with Alex Da Kid and Sam Harris, and toured with the band. He also had a Beats by Dre ad, and was featured on Eminem‘s ‘MMLP2’ album. Commons won Music Week’s Sync Artist Of The Year in 2016. This past year Commons composed the music for the summer blockbuster “Skyscraper” starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. These experiences opened his ears to a spectrum of genres, making him more interested in the path pop music is taking. 

Below is a list of remaining tour dates for Jamie N. Commons supporting Jacob Banks:

ALEX DA KID RELEASES NEW SINGLE “GO”

FEATURING H.E.R. & RAPSODY, AN ARTIST DISCOVERED WITH THE HELP OF AI

THE FIRST IN A SERIES OF SINGLES TO BE RELEASED SOON

NEW YORK, NY (May 18, 2018) — Continuing a tradition of blazing trails and breaking ground, Emmy® and GRAMMY® Award-winning music producer, songwriter, and KIDinaKORNER C.E.O./Founder Alex Da Kidmakes history once again.

In partnership with IBM and Spotify, Alex’s latest single, entitled “Go,” features an artist discovered with the help of IBM’s AI technology, Watson.

Get the song HERE via Republic Records.

The creation of “Go” sets a new standard for the music industry at large. To identify the perfect artist for his collaboration—rather than employ century-old A&R methods or spend countless hours casing the internet for new voices—Alex enlisted the help of IBM Watson. The technology allowed Alex to work smarter and more efficiently to uncover talent, changing the concept of A&R forever.

Initially, critically acclaimed songstress H.E.R. jumped at the chance to join forces with Alex. With those two key pieces in place, IBM proved instrumental in finding the song’s missing piece.

IBM Developer, Joshua Carr, worked closely with Alex to gain insight into his vision and sensibility to drive discovery. Carr created a custom Watson solution to aid Alex’s search. A technology and entertainment industry first, Watson learned the language of music from the producer’s natural speech.

Based on a subset of Spotify data, provided by Tim Ganss of Spotify Music Intelligence, Watson pored over enormous amounts of unstructured data like articles, social media, interviews and fan sentiment to help Alex uncover Rapsody as the best artist for his new track. From the tiny town of Snow Hill, North Carolina, Rapsody is known for her intricate rhyme patterns, metaphors, and wordplay.

Now, the vibrant and vital “Go” comes to life as an organic union between Alex, H.E.R., Rapsody, and the Watson Artist Discovery Tool and a game-changing moment.

This is the first in the series of numerous singles to be released soon. Stay tuned for more very soon.

POWERS RELEASES NEW SONG “JUST KIDS” TODAY

Check out “Just Kids” Here!

Critically acclaimed alt-pop duo POWERS—Mike Del Rio and Crista Ru—share their brand new single “Just Kids” today. Get it HERE via Republic Records.

 

An unshakable and unpredictable anthem of youth, “Just Kids” segues from a verse highlighting Crista’s delicate crooning into a tropical house-style drop and chantable hook. It’s the latest track to be released from the group after a string of unforgettable tracks released in 2017 including “Closer,” “Man On The Moon,” “Heavy” and “Dance.”

 

About the song, POWERS commented, “We were both still living in New York at the time, carving out our own existence with each other and the city when the initial seed of the song started. “Just Kids” was partially inspired after reading Patti Smith’s book of the same title and going through our own journey as Patti did in the 70’s. There’s something about undressing someone, figuratively- and in reality, that can feel so playful and eternal. Creativity and connection are what keep us taller children after all and we wanted to write a song about that.”

ABOUT POWERS:
POWERS is Mike Del Rio and Crista Ru. If you haven’t heard their names, rest assured, you’ve heard their tunes. After Del Rio inked a publishing deal with Alex Da Kid (Rihanna, Imagine Dragons), his eclectic writing and productions started popping up on TVs, playlists and radios everywhere. Working with top artists such as The Chainsmokers and Kylie Minogue, Del Rio most recently made waves by producing the international hit “Lost on You” by LP, the anthemic “Jungle” for X Ambassadors[feat. Jamie N Commons & Jay-Z] and executive producing The Knocks’ So Classic EP (on which POWERS wrote and featured on the title track “Classic”). On the flip side of this creative powerhouse is songwriter and bassist Crista Ru. Aside from lending her distinct vocals and unique top lining to POWERS, her credits read like a “who’s who” of the recent pop landscape . From penning the lead tune from Selena Gomez’s Stars Dance album to working with Swedish duo Icona Pop, Ms. Ru has a poignant knack as an artistic muse and a searing-­hot songstress, stirring the two together to push forward the sound of alternative pop. Previously in 2016, their infectious romper, “Beat of My Drum” shot up to the top of the Spotify Global Viral Chart and was featured as a lead song on campaigns for Garnier & Sprint. Following up with an equally impactful “Loved by You” and “Sunshine,” the band has reached over 60 million cumulative streams on Spotify, topped Hype Machine several times and received the coveted Emerging Artists Spotlight on iTunes.
