Pop phenom AJ Mitchell has officially released his brand new song “Spring Break” featuring Rich the Kid via Epic Records. Arriving just in time for the warmer months, the track flaunts a breezy blend of pop & R&B that finds AJ entering a vibrant new era as an artist. Co-written by AJ himself alongside Dan Gleyzer, Matt Bubel, Chelsea Balan and Grant Landis, “Spring Break” is available now via all digital streaming platforms HERE.
“I had a blast making Spring Break,” said AJ. “I haven’t really made a song like this before and I’m excited for people to hear a new side to me. I’ve always liked challenging myself and making different kinds of music, so it was nice to make something so carefree and fun. It’s really just inspired by the idea that Spring Break is a frame of mind. If you’re not on spring break, listening to this song will take you right there.”
AJ has also released a colorful accompanying music video for the song today, directed by Psycho Films’ Joe Weil (Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Ferg, Electric Guest). Filmed across multiple locations in Los Angeles, the piece perfectly captures the spirit of spring break; when tropical days seamlessly turn into euphoric nights. Watch the video now here.
As he readies his forthcoming debut album, AJ continues to prove himself as one of 2020’s breakout artists. Across the past year, the singer-songwriter has garnered acclaim from the likes of Billboard, DuJour, Idolator and more, and has received recognition as both an MTV PUSH artist and a 2019 Vevo LIFT artist. Impressively, he’s already ranked among the Top 500 artists on Spotify and is closing in on 8 million monthly listeners.
AJ released his Slow Dance EP via Epic Records in August 2019, which features the smash-hit title track featuring Ava Max. Following performances at the 2019 VMAs as well as on The Today Show and Live With Kelly and Ryan, the song maintained a position on the Top 40 Pop Radio charts for months. To close out the year, AJ continued to showcase his range with a steady stream of diverse tracks including the smooth, stripped back “Like Strangers Do,” the energetic pop anthem “Say It Again”, and the R&B-tinged “Unstoppable”.
