GRAMMY® Award-winning, platinum-certified, international DJ and producer, Tiësto, pop powerhouse Jonas Blue and global superstar Rita Ora release the official music video for “Ritual” today. Shot in London, the video features Rita Ora and was directed by Sophie Muller (Beyonce, Coldplay, No Doubt, Radiohead) and choreographed by Aaron Sillis (Rihanna, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber). The video premiered on the iconic Viacom Times Square billboard this morning, as well as on MTV Live and mtvU.
The track, which has been streamed well over 20 million times since its release less than 3 weeks ago, is a first-time song collaboration for the three artists.
Tiësto is a GRAMMY® Award-winning, platinum-certified, international icon. The DJ and producer is the only artist to ever hold the titles of “The Greatest DJ of All Time” courtesy of Mixmag, “#1 DJ” according to Rolling Stone, and “The Godfather of EDM” as proclaimed by Billboard. From his high-profile residency at Hakkasan to his crossover success, Tiësto created the blueprint that defines what it means to be a success in today’s dance music world.
About Jonas Blue
In an era of slow-building careers, Jonas Blue is an anomaly. He has amassed an armoury of platinum-plated hits with the singles ‘Fast Car’, ‘Perfect Strangers’, ‘Mama’, ‘Rise’, ‘Polaroid’, the collaboration ‘Back & Forth’ and ‘What I Like About You’. With almost 7.5 billion global streams and 40 million singles sales to date – certified platinum over 120 times around the world – the 5 x BRIT Award nominee has become a mainstage DJ, pop powerhouse and critically acclaimed songwriter.
Away from the charts, Jonas tours relentlessly around the world, making numerous festival appearances at the likes of Tomorrowland, We Are FSTVL, SW4 and Lollapalooza. Additionally, the hit-maker enjoyed a hugely successful Ibiza residency at superclub Hi throughout summer 2018 with additional Balearic performances at Ushuaia and Pacha.
So much has changed for the man who was still making music in his dad’s garage until 2017, but his drive remains the same. Jonas could afford to sit back and take stock but moving forward is what Jonas Blue is all about.
