New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Three-time GRAMMY Award-nominated and BRIT Award-winning multiplatinum singer-songwriter James
Bay shares the music video for his new single "Peer Pressure" [feat. Julia Michaels] today. Watch it below.
In the video, Bay and Michaels sing to each other alone on a bare stage. As they get closer, the stripped-down visual illuminates the raw musical power the two create together. The video's broadcast premiere went live on MTV Live, mtvU and on the Viacom billboards in Times Square.
"Peer Pressure" stands out as another high watermark for Bay. Within a month's time, it has already clocked 15 million Spotify streams and counting. Not to mention, he delivered a breathtaking late night television performance of the single on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Check it out below.
Following two sold out shows at New York's Beacon Theater, Bay has been headlining venues across the country all month. He rounds out the tour with a run of West Coast dates through April 3 at Paramount Theatre in Seattle, WA.
