Don Diablo Joins Forces With Jessie J To Release Courageous New Single “BRAVE”
Future House trailblazer and world-renowned artist Don Diablo releases a new single entitled “BRAVE” with Jessie J this past Friday.
Get it HERE via Casablanca Records.
Don Diablo’s debut for Casablanca pairs his signature production with the inimitable voice of Jessie J for their very first collaboration. This all star team merges two different musical worlds to send out a strong message to the world with “BRAVE”.
About “BRAVE,” Don commented, “Sometimes, you just need an extra push to have more courage in life and more courage to chase your dreams or to simply stand up for what you believe in. I had always wanted to work with JESSIE, but I also know she doesn’t often feature on other people’s records. So, it felt like I needed to wait for the right moment. ‘BRAVE’ was that moment. I simply couldn’t imagine anybody else bringing across the message of this song better than she could.”
Jessie J adds, “After hearing the lyrics to “BRAVE” I immediately wanted be part of this great song and message. There is nothing about this song that doesn’t make you feel something or want to dance! A perfect summer anthem, and I’m so happy to be on tour right now so I can perform it for my fans. Super grateful to Don Diablo for asking me to feature, and can’t wait for the world to hear it!”
