Currently storming up the UK Official Charts with ‘By Your Side’, British hit maker Jonas Blue has now unveiled the single’s picturesque music video.
Filmed by director duo Arni and Kinski, the cinematic video for ‘By Your Side’ takes place in Iceland and focuses on a Nordic beauty’s adventures. Jonas also makes a notable cameo, displaying his accomplished piano playing and skills behind the decks.
Adding to Jonas’ spectacular success this year – he has sold more singles globally this year that any other debut British artist – ‘By Your Side’ jumped straight into the Top 10 UK iTunes Chart and Top 20 UK Singles Chart since its release just two weeks ago. The single has already amassed 10 million global Spotify streams to date and been added to the playlists at BBC Radio 1, Kiss FM and Capital FM.
‘By Your Side’ begins as an emotive, piano-driven record laced with layered strings whilst RAYE’s rich, romantic vocals portrays a young, wild and free love story. The track builds up into a crescendo of electrifying synths propelling into a dancefloor-ready beat. London-based singer RAYE has already been turning heads with her eclectic, unique wave of Electro/R&B and prolific collaborations with Stormzy and Charli XCX.
Jonas Blue first flew into the spotlight with his debut single ‘Fast Car’, becoming the biggest selling single this year by a debut UK artist. The certified smash hit sold over 5.5 million records worldwide reaching multi-Platinum and Gold status around the world. Charting at #2 in the UK Official Charts, ‘Fast Car’ spent 11 consecutive weeks in the Top 10, with it peaking at #1 on the iTunes chart in several countries in Europe.
Proving no signs of stopping anytime soon, Jonas’ last single ‘Perfect Strangers’ matched the huge commercial success of ‘Fast Car’. The single became the song of the summer and reached #2 in the UK Official Charts and also received Platinum and Gold status across the world. Altogether, Jonas has now surpassed 1 billion global streams across audio and video.
With a string of accolades already under his belt – including a highly praised performance of ‘Perfect Strangers’ with JP Cooper on The Xtra Factor and receiving a coveted MTV European Music Award nomination to name a few, it’s clear to see that Jonas Blue has become of 2016’s biggest rising stars.
