“Hear Me Say” is just the latest in a long string of uplifting dance anthems for Jonas Blue. It 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.
Soon after the release of “Hear Me Say,” Jonas is also plotting a return to live shows. He’s set to perform a sold-out opening party at London’s Ministry of Sound on July 23. 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. Tickets are available now. This busy schedule, like “Hear Me Say,” is proof of Jonas’ continued innovation and attention to detail. Even though he’s on top of the world, he’s still pushing himself with every track—and making people dance along the way.
