Tate Stevens is really wasting almost no time at all when it comes to getting his first post-“X Factor” single out to the masses. As a matter of fact, you should have an opportunity to hear it by the end of next month, which is at least a solid three or four months earlier than when we heard anything original from the season 1 contestants (save for a remixed version of Aretha Franklin’s “Respect” featuring Melanie Amaro that was a part of a Pepsi Super Bowl commercial).
Speaking in a brand-new interview with Rolling Stone, the winner of the show’s first season announced that his debut song, “Holler if You’re With Me,” is going to be featured during his commercial that he is filming with Pepsi for the Grammys. The video is being shot in Simi Valley, California, and the overall concept for it (at least according to Tate) seems to be something rather similar to what we saw from him with his performance of “Bonfire” during the live rounds of the show:
“When I won The X Factor, part of the deal was getting to do this video shoot with Pepsi and Syco Music/RCA Nashville. They’ve teamed up to do this video to get America the first look at me … The whole concept is just people getting together, having a big bonfire party. That’s the idea – you’re going to a Tate Stevens concert, or party, in the middle of nowhere.”
The irony here in some ways is that the song actually seems perfect to be performed at the Super Bowl: it sounds like it has that sort of rocking fast pace to it that football fans will go for, but hopefully it will also play well during music’s biggest night when the show airs next month.
A new Fifth Harmony chat – Want to ask some questions to the sensational new girl group? Well, you’re now going to have the opportunity! If you head over to this link, you can find out some more information as to how to take part in a Google Hangout chat that the ladies are having with Clevver TV as a way to help promote their new record deal; and hopefully, they will give us an idea in the process just what their music is going to end up sounding like.
It is not likely that we will hear a Fifth Harmony single for many more months, especially since Ally, Lauren, Camila, Normani, and Dinah Jane have yet to really spend any sort of substantial time at all in the studio.
