Multi platinum Singer and Songwriter Jonas Blue Teams Up With Swedish Artist Léon on New Single “Hear Me Say”
Neon synth programming gilds LÉON’s affecting vocal, magnifying the depths of the emotion. Jonas’ production is detailed but tasteful, nodding both to the fizzy history of rave music and sleek classic house tracks. As LÉON sings of romance lost and found, the track builds to a buoyant climax, underscoring one of dance music’s great promises. No matter how you’re feeling when you get to the club, you can always dance through the pain.
The new single was built around anthemic vocals and caffeinated drum rushes, the single arrives right on time, at the cusp of a summer of packed dancefloors, sweaty festivals, and breezy days in the company of friends.
Jonas says, “Hear Me Say’ is about a relationship that seemed perfect but the couple drifted apart somewhere along the way,” Jonas explains. “They will always love each other, and will cherish the memories they created, but it was just not meant to be. It’s about having a voice, and people hearing your voice. It’s about expressing your feelings and not holding back what you want to say.”
“Hear Me Say” follows March’s “Something Stupid” with R&B singer AWA, which also received a stylish video from world-renowned filmmaker and photographer Rankin. These new singles have only further established Jonas as a global dance-pop powerhouse. Thanks to tracks like his beloved “Perfect Strangers,” he’s been certified platinum over 120 times across the world, attained over 13 billion streams, and sold over 60 million singles. These numbers put him in rarified air, even in the realms of pop music, but they wouldn’t mean anything without tasteful, infectious singles like “Hear Me Say” to back it up.
LEON Shares, “I’m so happy that this song is finally coming out,” LÉON adds. “It came from a very honest place and I think we all felt how special it was the day we wrote it. I love that it turned out to be a song that you want to dance to, how Jonas made it feel so uplifting and powerful with his production on top of it. It almost has this ’90s feel to it. Can’t wait to see how people feel about it!”
He’s set to perform a sold-out show at London’s Ministry of Sound on June 25. Later this summer, he’ll begin a DJ residency at Resorts World Las Vegas. In partnership with Zouk Group, the first shows are set to take place on July 30 and Aug 13 at AYU DAYCLUB.
