Written by powerhouse hitmaker Julia Michaels [Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez] and Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum music producer and songwriter Ian Kirkpatrick, Jacob’s voice cruises over a slick R&B beat into an unshakable hook—“Hey, I’m gonna ride this skateboard down the block, forget my problems when I reach the top”—punctuated by piano and handclaps.
“Skateboard” arrives hot on the heels of “Hit Me Back,” which racked up 4 million YouTube/VEVO views and nearly 3 million Spotify streams to date. In addition to praise from New York Times, Idolator, Just Jared Jr., and more, Billboard claimed, “with the release of each new song, he’s closer to the dream of pop stardom.”
This fall, Jacob takes Left Me Hangin’ on the road across Europe accompanied by Bars & Melody and The Bomb Digz with special guest appearances by Lukas Rieger.
