FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NSFW SEXY MUSIC VIDEO TO TITLE-TRACK PREMIERES EXCLUSIVELY ON BILLBOARD.COM
Los Angeles, Calif. (Jan. 27, 2017)– Former Hot Chelle Rae member Nash Overstreet is revealing his true sound as a solo artist through his debut EP titled U Don’t Get 2 Do That, which released to digital platforms today. In support of the worldwide release, he is revealing the title-track as his first single with a sexy new music video that is premiering exclusively on Billboard.com.
Nash tapped into the genres of music that influenced his upbringing, going back to soul, R&B and pop, and channeled his life experiences through lyrics. He co-wrote and produced the four-track pop/R&B project and opened up about past relationships, nights on the road and the desire for love.
“After being in a band for so many years and writing for other artists, it was really difficult to find my sound and who I was as an artist.” explains the multi-award winning singer. “Once I’d finished producing the title track of this EP, it became much clearer which songs would be for other artists, and which songs would be for my project.”
The title-track is giving fans a glimpse of what to expect on the EP and full-length project to come in the future.
“ ‘U Don’t Get 2 Do That’ was the first song I wrote that I 100% connected to musically and lyrically as an artist,” explains Nash. “Being about a run-in with an ex, I love that the lyrics can be seen as her perspective, as well as mine. It’s all about the rights you lose and give up once you’re no longer in a relationship with someone. Whether that’s being able to have your late night hookups, hang out with the same friends, or even text to say hi. There are a million different ways I relate to this song, and I’m hoping it connects with listeners the same way.”
Visually, Nash wanted to create a video that expressed the story of the single, while putting his artistic ideas on camera. So, he partnered with Director Sean Hagwell, and worked with Deirdre Barnes (who he’d met while out on Justin Biebers “Believe” tour) to create a stimulating display of dance, body art, and symbolism.
Nash is a multi-platinum, American Music Award, two-time BMI Pop award winning songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist and artist from the band Hot Chelle Rae. The band has had success with major pop hits like “Tonight Tonight,” “I Like It Like That”, “Honestly,” and others. Currently, Nash is continuing to write songs while also releasing his first EP as a solo artist titled U Don’t Get 2 Do That available now. Nash has penned songs for music A-listers including Britney Spears, Meghan Trainor, and Rachel Platten. Additionally, he has worked with Taylor Swift, Gavin Degraw and songwriters like Mike Posner, Martin Johnson, Rock Mafia, Claude Kelly, Nasri Atweh and others.
“If my music can speak to people, and it gives them something to identify with… that means everything to me. Even something as simple as someone falling in love with a beat I’ve made, or the sound of my voice… that’s why I do what I do. It’s been a long time coming making this EP and I’m ready and happy to finally show everyone who I am as an artist.”
