Jack & Jack
From the Promoter
Jack &Jack confidently and charismatically comprise two sides of a dynamic whole. On one side, you’ll find Jack Johnson dexterously rapping, turning up, and occasionally adding his own personal touch to the production. On the other side, you’ll find Jack Gilinsky carrying stadium-size hooks, moving with scorching swagger, and breaking hearts worldwide.
With over 1.5 million singles moved, countless worldwide gigs sold out, legions of adoring fans in tears, and the blessing of legendary trendsetters like Timbaland, the duo let both halves shine on their 2017 EP.
“The new music is everything we love,” explains Gilinsky. “It’s got R&B elements. It’s soulful. It’s pop. It’s hip-hop. It comes from a real place. We wanted to bring those together in a conceptual project that speaks to where we are as 21-year-old guys living in Los Angeles.”
“The artists that we love—whether it’s Anderson Paak. and Daniel Caesar or Eminem and Lil Wayne—are one-of-a-kind, but we want to be two-of-a-kind,” smiles Johnson. “That was the goal here!”
In order to achieve that goal, the boys put their heads down and devoted an entire year torealizing a distinct vision. They teamed up with a bevy of powerhouse producers, including Ryan Ogren [R. Kelly, Trey Songz], Halatrax [Selena Gomez, Gavin DeGraw], Harmony Samuels [Chris Brown, Ne-Yo], First Born [Trey Songz, Ludacris], Poo Bear [Justin Bieber, Big Boi], and Timbaland who dubbed them “The future.”Throughout the process, Jack & Jack carefully assembled a five-song concept EPthat exploresthe downfall of a relationship via interconnected music videos.
