In an era of slow-building careers, Jonas Blue is an anomaly. In just three years, the five times Brit Award nominee has become a pop powerhouse, a globally-successful songwriter, producer and performer with more than 6 billion streams and 35 million singles sales to his name. He could have stayed a singles artist, continuing to add to his armoury of platinum-plated, global hits and seeing his reputation as a songwriter, producer, DJ and talent-spotter soar.
But Jonas – aka Londoner Guy Robin – has never taken the easy option. It’s why he chooses to work with new or unknown singers, helping to launch their careers, rather than simply team up with chart stars. It’s why none of his songs sound remotely the same, why he refuses to be defined by genre, why he continues to surprise.
Blue, his debut album which was released in November last year, was his chance to push the envelope further, to take fans on a journey and to expose even more fresh talent from around the world. 15 songs feature 21 guest artists. Alongside seven huge hits are eight brand new tracks that take Jonas Blue in to new territory, that mix and match guests with explosive results, that prove that the man with the Midas touch is only just getting started.
