Jax Jones “Harder” Featuring Bebe Rexha

Fresh from his latest single ‘One Touch’ with Jess Glynne, two-time BRIT Award nominated DJ/producer Jax Jones is back with yet another collaboration in the form of ‘Harder’ with pop powerhouse Bebe Rexha. Out today via Polydor/Interscope Records, stream and download ‘Harder’ here.

In typical Bebe style the lyrics on ‘Harder’ showcase her sass and sharp wit underpinned by the infectious dance and pop beats Jax is synonymous for. ‘Harder’ offers an empowering and self-assured message on how to handle love that is frank but yet fun.

Collectively both Bebe and Jax have set the charts on fire with a succession of award-winning collaborations although ‘Harder’ is the pair’s first joint record. With both boasting an impressive back catalogue of hits, the release of ‘Harder’ is all set to bring their legions of loyal fans together providing the perfect soundtrack to summer. 

Speaking of the single Jax said “Me and Camille have a great relationship and we’ve enjoyed a lot of success together – ‘All Day and Night’ and ‘Ring Ring’ – so to join forces with her and Steve Mac, who I’ve looked up to for a long time, was a great opportunity for me to try something different and flex my pop muscles. Bebe Rexha linking up with us on this record was the icing on the cake, she’s pretty iconic and is just a don. ‘All Day and Night’ was for the clubs, this one’s the daytime snack”.

Having just completed a SNACKS residency at Ibiza Rock last month, Jax Jones will be joining Zedd on his North American headlining “Orbit” tour, kicking off September 7 in Los Angeles at the LA Historic Park. See US tour dates below.

Monsta X is currently preparing to cause pandemonium stateside once again by making history as the first K-Pop group to perform at the iHeart Radio Jingle Ball, where they will be performing the English version of “Shoot Out” for the first time. The first of five dates will be kicking off in Los Angeles on Friday November 30th alongside household names such as Cardi B, Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, G-Eazy, Khalid, Normani, Dua Lipa, Alessia Cara, Calvin Harris, Bazzi and Bebe Rexha.

Not to mention their 47 week streak on the Billboard Social 50 Chart. Monsta X is causing a unstoppable wave of interest here with their 2nd Album and title track “Shoot Out”, with PAPER Magazine stating “Shoot Out” is niche enough to catch the ear of the most cynical music critic, and accessible enough, via the band’s perfectly synchronized harmonies, to appeal to the masses” and MTV describing it as“..a thundering beat, slick pop-rock chorus, and sensual visual.” Earmilk also added “Brimming with the grit and sensual rhythms that are core to the band’s musical style, “Shoot Out” is about the inescapability of fate and the importance of filling life with love.”

Cannabis took over the red carpet at this past weekend’s iHeartRadio VVMA’s! Canadian pop star, Rosette Luve strolled the red carpet wearing an iconic cannabis-inspired dress created by Canadian designer, Jason Matlo for the Weekend Unlimited, a Vancouver-based cannabis brand.

This “smoking hot” dress was specially designed to celebrate the country’s upcoming entry into the legal cannabis market in October! Rosette, who was at the event to promote her own chart single, Single for the Summer, and her dress caught the eyes of a number of other pop artists including Alessia Cara, Bebe Rexha and Shawn Mendes to name a few.

According to the designer, Jason Matlo, “Having the opportunity to design this bespoke version of The Weekend Unlimited dress for Rosette Luve to walk the red carpet of the MMVA’s in Toronto was very exciting. This first design allowed me to merge my background and love of couture with a young, high style street look. The entire process has been very energizing. I will be working creatively on developing a range of products for the Premiere Global Lifestyle brand, Weekend Unlimited Live International.”
