Co-written by AJ himself alongside Dan Gleyzer, Matt Bubel, Chelsea Balan and Grant Landis, “Spring Break” is available now via all digital streaming platforms HERE.
“I had a blast making Spring Break,” said AJ. “I haven’t really made a song like this before and I’m excited for people to hear a new side to me. I’ve always liked challenging myself and making different kinds of music, so it was nice to make something so carefree and fun. It’s really just inspired by the idea that Spring Break is a frame of mind. If you’re not on spring break, listening to this song will take you right there.”
AJ has also released a colorful accompanying music video for the song, directed by Psycho Films’ Joe Weil (Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Ferg, Electric Guest).
