- DNCE and Nicki Minaj Premiere New Song “Kissing Strangers”
- American dance-rock band DNCE and American rapper Nicki Minaj teamed up on a new song "Kissing Strangers", which was premiered on April 14, 2017.
They have already shot the music video, drawing inspiration from the 1970s and ’80s, which will be premiered in a few days.
The song follows up "Body Moves" from a debut album "DNCE" and "Forever" from "The Lego Batman Movie" soundtrack.
The band performed live the new song at the Brooklyn Bowl in New York City as part of M&M’s new Spotlight concert series on April 12. They gave free tickets to their fans.
Frontman of the band, Joe Jonas said about Spotlight concert and the new song;
"It is a really cool thing called M&M's Spotlight and it's a spontaneous concert, pop-up series and we are the first artist to do it. We started talking to M&Ms we were like hey M&Ms we think you're a great candy and they were like well you know we are a cool candy but you guys are a cool band and we decided to do a big concert together.
It's featuring Nicki Minaj. It's a relatable song. It's got, I think, similarities and the addictiveness of 'Cake by the Ocean,' it is ear candy no pun intended. It is something I think we really are proud of and we want to be able to share with the world and we're ready so this weekend is going to be a celebration for all of us."
Bass guitar Cole Whittle added;
"Nicki's awesome. She's the coolest. She came in and we were fast friends and really took the time to get the video right and her verse is so awesome and I think it's really cool that she stepped into the rock and roll world for a minute with us. She has been nothing but supportive and she's excited about the song too."
DNCE was formed in 2015, the group consists of members Joe Jonas (lead vocals), Jack Lawless (drums), Cole Whittle (bass guitar), and JinJoo Lee (guitar, backing vocals).
