Jack Johnson is known for being one half of the multi-platinum, chart-topping pop duo Jack and Jack, but is now entering a new chapter of life as JVCK J, as the pair venture out to explore solo careers. His debut single “You Lie” dropped today and it’s nothing you would expect for his first solo single but in the best way that perfectly establishes his vocal and rapping ability.
Throughout Jack & Jack’s career, Johnson seldom showed off his singing, mainly rapping in verses but was never afraid to push the boundaries of his creativity which was one of the reasons the duo was so successful. The Nebraskan natives were always a creative duo, striving to make themselves stand apart from other artists. Gaining their following from Vine, the duo eventually made their mark in the music industry gaining over 15 million followers combined on social media and with over 170 million streams on their latest single “Nobody Compares To You.” These two incredible artists have seen so much success going on multiple world tours, performing on The Late Late Show With James Corden and the 2018 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, not to mention the release of their debut album A Good Friend Is Nice last year which reached over 30 million streams.
As the door for Jack & Jack begins to close, but will never shut, Johnson starts his new dolor career with a smooth, personal track featuring singer Andrea Rosario, that perfectly blends his well-known unmatched rapping with disheartening lyrics of a past toxic relationship.
“You Lie” is the perfect starting point for a well-grounded, definitive successful career. Johnson expressed “This has been a long time coming. I can’t wait to show the world what I’m capable of.” JVCK J is an artist who isn’t afraid to push his limits. Whose ingenious work ethic, divergent thinking, passion and incomparable personality will broaden the pop/hip hop scene.
