Do you believe in love at first sight? What about at first sound? Jonas Blue reportedly reached out to Nebraskan pop duo Jack & Jack after hearing the singers interviewed on a Los Angeles radio station. The former Vine stars had that special something Blue needed for his next summer anthem, and today, we hear the fruits of that labor on the uplifting cords of “Rise.”
It’s a feel-good house-pop tune about generation that refuses to give up. Millennials may struggle to meet the marks their parents have come to expect, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t breaking new ground. Jack & Jack tap into that spirit perfectly, while Blue does his thing with a bright and bouncy beat.
“Rise” comes just as Blue kicks off his summer residency at Hï Ibiza. The single is out now on Astralwerks; “Rise” with the tide below.
