Multi-platinum selling artist Joel Fletcher has joined forces once again with New Zealand-born, US-based, R&B heavyweight Kennyon Brown to deliver ‘Changes’, a vibey dance floor anthem intertwined with nostalgic, high vibration beats. ‘Changes’ follows on from the pair’s previous collab ‘Vibe’ which hit 2 million streams, plus blasted into the top 20 on Shazam in Sydney.
” Kenny and I started this one right after ‘Vibe’,” explains Joel. “We spoke about doing a re-make of something and funnily enough he suggested a re-make of one of my favourite songs of all time ‘Midas Touch’ which also is one of his favourites. We worked on it for a couple of months until we got it right; Kenny added an original second verse and absolutely smashed it. Normally after I finish a song I don’t listen to it all that much as I’ve heard it 100 times during the creating process, but with this one I have had it on repeat every day after finishing it, so I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do.”
Kennyon adds, “Me and Joel had finished Vibe but even prior to it being fully mixed and mastered, we were already talking about the next song (Changes). I told him lets flip an old song and make it a more pop record and i sent him ‘Midas Touch’ not realising he loved that song just as much as i did. So there we went, and did our thing with this. I did maybe 2-3 different ideas until we finally got there and we knew THIS was the one! Excited for the world to hear this!”
Off the back of their last collaboration ‘Vibe’, which has already gained over 2 million streams, it’s safe to say that this duo doesn’t play games when it comes to creating some seriously catchy bangers.
Joel Fletcher was synonymous with the global phenomenon of bounce from its inception, leading the charge with his #2 ARIA Singles Chart, 4 x platinum hit ‘Swing’ featuring Savage , and his platinum hit ‘Bring It Back’ with Will Sparks. His recent collaborations and releases have seen success in DJ circles with support from Robin Schulz, Will Sparks, Martin Jensen, David Guetta and Tigerlily amongst many others.
Kennyon Brown’s breakthrough single ‘All On Me’ garnered significant attention with radio additions to Australia’s The Edge and New Zealand’s Mai FM, plus over 1 million views of the music video in the first month. This continual rise has seen Kennyon Brown receive continual success in both streaming and touring, selling out shows in Australia, New Zealand and the US and performing at festivals around the world.
Together Joel Fletcher and Kennyon Brown are a guaranteed slam dunk when it comes to creating club favourites and ‘Changes’ is yet another buzzer beater from the teams at Hussle and FutureNow.
