Like another newcomer to the mainstream that we introduced this week (Bebe Rexha), Jon Bellion is one of the songwriter’s behind Eminem and Rihanna’s behemoth hit single, “The Monster.” He also had a hand in writing Jason Derulo’s single “Tumpets.” Imagine those publishing checks! Jon’s been on our radar for a couple years, as he’s been on the indie grind, but after “The Monster,” Jon Bellion’s seen a new peak in his stock price. He performed at festivals across Europe this summer. And now he’s gearing up to release his third independent album entitled, The Definition, on September 23rd.
The guy is uber creative. Singer, song-writer, producer, hipster beard grower. And his new video for the self-produced “Simple and Sweet” showcases all of that, including the dope hipster beard. This video is eye-porn; it’s so beautiful. As for the song itself, it’s amazing. As Jon puts it, “it’s a brain massage, with a gangster-ass outro.” Couldn’t have said it better myself. Check out “Simple and Weet” below:
