Vine may be dead, but the career of Jack & Jack is very much alive.
Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, now based in Los Angeles, California, Jack Johnson and Jack Gillinsky have taken their social media success and turned it into a legitimate career as pop-rap musicians, recently joining the Island Records team.
Best known for their 2014 single, “Wild Life”, which peaked at #87 on the U.S. Billboard Top 100, Jack & Jack are looking to rebrand themselves as pop music mainstays and build their repertoire for 2018. Working in catchy hooks over vibrant productions, their latest single, “Beg” is a solid effort in their attempt to do just that, making a strong case for their place in the upper tiers of pop music today.
Released in November of 2017, “Beg” shows promise and momentum for the duo’s future, one they’re looking to capitalize on following their recent collaboration with Olivia O’Brien on “Beg’s” acoustic release.
