Elephante and Jessica Jarrell Start A Dance Party with "Hold"
Elephante has dropped a new jam today. It's called "Hold," and features a vocal performance from Jessica Jarrell, who was featured in the past on Justin Bieber’s 2010 hit, “Overboard." Close your eyes and imagine a white sand beach with the sun rays glistening down on you -- now press play. Are you there? We sure are.
Jarrell's vocals are chopped and pitched to make for a kaleidoscopic melody. Pair it with a groovy, retro beat and you have audial gold. Elephante spoke to Billboard and noted that his influence came tumbling in from 90's hip hop.
“This song was a ton of fun to make. I was in the studio with Jessica and my friend Peter from RUMORS, and it was one of those times that everything just flowed and we just fed off each other and wrote this really special vocal."
“For a while I actually had no idea what to do with the production, but one day I was on a plane and this funky 90s hip-hop thing popped in my head and I knew it was perfect. It's a bit of a new sound for me, but I'm really proud of how the song turned out and hope you guys love it as much as I do!”
