Hott New Artist: Ansel Elgort
Ansel Elgort is an American actor, singer, DJ, and winner of MTV’s Best Kiss Award for his role as Augustus “Gus” Waters in the movie, The Fault in Our Stars. Click the link above to witness the romance 😉 The multi-talented entertainer isn’t only succeeding on screen, but he’s also doing big things in the studio. He launched his music career in 2014, and was quickly picked up by Steve Angello’s Size Records, playing the main stage at Electric Zoo in 2014 and Ultra in 2015.
I’ve posted three songs of his below this text.
Quickly after these performances, he signed a record deal with Universal and released his first single, Home Alone, July of 2016. His voice and the production of Home Alone behind Ansel’s vocals is extremely dynamic, synth oriented, and powerful.
In February, Ansel released his first official music video, Thief, in which he starred with his girlfriend Violetta Komyshan, a ballet dancer. He may not have won an award for locking lips in this music video, but you certainly feel the romance.
In May of this year, he was featured on Logic’s third studio album, Everybody, on the song Killing Spree, a song about social media and the things we glorify and socialize about on social media. Check out Logic’s description of how the song came to be and the lyrics in this video because he’s the man, and I love listening to him talk.
Back to Ansel! Directly below is Ansel’s new single, All I Think About Is You. It’s a modern pop song with a heavy vocal chorus, extending Ansel’s emotional vocals into the vocal chops, illustrating the pain and extended suffering when your ruminate about a lost love. A summer jam for sure!
