Jonas Blue and MAX unleash new summer single and video, ‘ Naked’
Acclaimed British producer/songwriter Jonas Blue teams up with U.S. pop sensation MAX on the feel-good summer romance anthem “Naked,” released today alongside an outrageously fun quarantine video.
Laden with hooks, infectious melodies and an indelible guitar line, “Naked” reaffirms Jonas’ reputation for producing world-class hits. Ed Drewett (Little Mix, One Direction), and Sam Romans, who helped pen the U.K.’s biggest single of 2019, Lewis Capaldi’s “Someone You Loved,” collaborated on the track.
In the scintillating official video, directed Isaac Rentz (Katy Perry, Mabel, Blink 182), Jonas and MAX are joined a diverse pool of partygoers, oozing the sexy, liberating attitudes of the song. Steeped in neon and rotoscope animation, the clip was created entirely in lockdown, with a little help from Jonas’ family and MAX’s wife.
Jonas Blue says, “Creating ‘Naked’ was such a magic moment in the studio – it all clicked and flowed so naturally. The song is fun, positive and carefree, but also shows a bit of a seductive side. Having MAX feature on it was the perfect combination. He’s got the soul and swagger to deliver this at the perfect level – capturing every emotion. I couldn’t be more excited to get this one out into the world.”
MAX adds, “I’ve been obsessed with ‘Naked’ since the first time I heard the demo. It was like when I met my dog for the first time and knew I had to tell everyone else to back off, he’s mine! There’s something so infectious about it, and when Jonas asked me to sing it, I was extremely honored to be a part of this incredible song.”
