Jonas Blue’s career to date has been astounding and its effect has been felt the world over with singles like ‘Fast Car’, ‘Perfect Strangers’ ‘Rise, ‘Mama’ & ‘Polaroid’ collectively having been certified platinum over 120 times around the globe. Amassing an army of instantly recognisable hit singles, with over 13 billion global streams and over 60 million singles sales, Jonas has cemented his name as a main stage DJ and pop powerhouse. With over one billion streams in 2020 alone, joining an elite list of artists including The 1975 and Niall Horan, Jonas’ debut album Blue also smashed its way to Gold status. But, with 2021 now in full swing, he’s not about to rest on his laurels. A man on a mission, whose sights are firmly set for the top, this year is the start of a new era of hard graft and perseverance. His story is one of self-belief, self-improvement and talent…. 2018 was a landmark year. He released ‘Rise’ featuring Jack & Jack, which was one of the summer’s biggest global hits and owned the autumn with ‘Polaroid’ – his highly-anticipated collaboration with Liam Payne and Nashville actress Lennon Stella.
The success of both hits was sandwiched between his huge collaboration ‘Back & Forth’ with chart-topping UK vocalist Becky Hill and Detroit house legend, MK. Debut album Blue soon followed, which featured collaborations with the likes of fast-rising songstress Nina Nesbitt, platinum-selling Canadian artist Jessie Reyez, multi-skilled singer/songwriter Zak Abel, Charlotte OC, and Grammy award-winning Puerto Rican rapper Jhay Cortez, alongside his previous multi-platinum selling hits. Jonas’ album was also the recipient of the Brit Certified Breakthrough Award the following year. Off the back of Blue, Jonas’ hard work and inspiring music continues to receive global success with singles featuring a combo of hot new artists, as well as household names. These included the brilliant ‘Younger’ featuring HRVY, ‘Mistakes’ featuring Paloma Faith, ‘Naked’ featuring MAX, ‘What I Like About You’ featuring Danish popstar Theresa Rex and ‘Ritual’, his much-loved collaboration with Tiësto and Rita Ora. He also achieved global success as co-producer of Ava Max’s smash hit My Head and My Heart in early 2021. At the height of a hectic Ibiza season in 2019, Jonas added another string to his bow with the launch of his label, Electronic Nature. Having already established successful events, as well as releases from emerging talent including Jack Wins, Dark Heart and Jerome Price with more to come, Electronic Nature is a label to watch. Away from the studio and the charts, Jonas toured relentlessly all over the world. Clocking up the hours and miles, he’s been a firm fixture on mainstages worldwide, performing at the most legendary festivals. Not stopping there, Jonas has made his mark on Ibiza, having performed at hotspots Ushuaia, Cafe Mambo and has successfully hosted his Electronic Nature residency at superclub Hï Ibiza.
As we see a return to live performances in 2021, Jonas will be opening up Ministry of Sound in London, the iconic dance music venue, and joining heavyweights Tiesto and Zedd as a resident DJ at Zouk in Las Vegas from this summer. Locked down or not, his latest release ‘Something Stupid’ featuring AWA kicked off the year in style, holding no bars and providing joy for fans across the world. With the track firmly grounded in its dance roots, it smashed its way into homes worldwide as Jonas continues to bring fans on a new journey with him – inspiring, uplifting and spreading global positivity.
