0

Atlantic recording group Why Don’t We has unveiled the much anticipated companion video for their latest single, “Trust Fund Baby.”  The video – shot by MTV VMA winning director Jason Koenig (Ed Sheeran, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis) – is streaming now on the band’s massively popular YouTube channel, which now boasts over 1.5 million subscribers.  Watch HERE.

 Written by multiple GRAMMY® Award-winning superstar Ed Sheeran and produced by British hitmaker Steve Mac (Ed Sheeran, Liam Payne, Clean Bandit), “Trust Fund Baby” immediately shot into the Top 3 on the iTunes Overall Songs Chart upon its release earlier this month, ahead of superstar artists like Drake, Bruno Mars, and Camila Cabello, and has press raving with BuzzFeed already calling it “a smash” and Rolling Stone gushing about “the song’s catchy, booming beat.”  This week, “Trust Fund Baby” debuts on the Top 40 radio chart, with over 80 stations on board, including NYC powerhouse Z-100.

Today’s arrival of the “Trust Fund Baby” music video celebrates the kick off of Why Don’t We’s sold out North American tour. “The Invitation Tour” – the band’s biggest headlining tour to date – begins tonight at Bogart’s in Cincinnati, OH and then travels into late April (see attached itinerary). Due to overwhelming demand, second shows have been added in Toronto and Los Angeles (March 17-18 at The Novo) and even third shows in  Chicago and New York (April 21-23 at.

Why Don’t We closed out 2017 on a remarkably high note.  In addition to national television appearances on NBC’s “TODAY” and the syndicated daytime show “Live with Kelly and Ryan,” the young group performed on the entire iHeartRadio Jingle Ball tour, sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in pop music, including Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, and Camila Cabello at NYC’s Madison Square Garden.  The group was named MTV PUSH: Artist To Watch for the month of November, while simultaneously serving as Radio Disney’s “NBT” (Next Big Thing) featured artist, joining an impressive roster of “NBT” alumni including Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes, Alessia Cara, Fifth Harmony and  more.  Likewise, a raft of noteworthy press has been rolling in as of late, including features in Rolling Stone, People, and TIME who enthused that the band’s “…star should only continue to rise in 2018.” 

Amassing more than 120 million global audio streams, 2.4 million Instagram followers, and total You Tube views exceeding 145 million with over 1.5 million subscribers in just over a year, Why Don’t We is one of pop music’s biggest breakout stories. Taking an innovative and unconventional approach towards releasing new music and actively engaging their rapidly growing fanbase, the prolific young group – the quintet ranges in age from 16-19 years old – put out four EPs in under 12 months.  Following their debut EP “ONLY THE BEGINNING” and followup “SOMETHING DIFFERENT” EP, it was last summer’s “WHY DON’T WE JUST” EP that first exploded, hitting #1 on iTunes’ “Pop Albums” chart, overtaking artists like Bruno Mars, Harry Styles, and Ed Sheeran.  After selling out their first-ever headlining summer tour, the band put out their “INVITATION” EP – released in September to commemorate the band’s one year anniversary – which proved an even greater success, topping iTunes’ “Overall Albums” chart in six countries including the United States.  The band’s most recent single “These Girls” made a top 10 debut on the iTunes Store’s “Top Pop Songs” chart late last summer, and now boasts over 13 million worldwide streams while its colorful companion visual has logged over 40 million views at YouTube alone.  The band also garnered early press attention from Entertainment Weekly, Us Weekly, and Billboard who named the band in their annual “21 Under 21” ranking, as well as  profile pieces on “Entertainment Tonight,” “Extra,” and “Access Hollywood.”
