Jaden Smith to Host Special StemDrop TikTok LIVE
StemDrop will broadcast a special TikTok LIVE featuring performances of “Red Lights” from artists discovered through the program, hosted by musician, activist, and designer Jaden Smith. Jaden has joined StemDrop as an artistic curator and will consult with artists through the program.
StemDrop, the global collaboration project from TikTok, Syco, Universal Music Group, Republic Records and Samsung was created to give everyone, from up-and-coming to established artists, the chance to collaborate with the world’s biggest hit-makers. It’s simple, what would happen if you wrote a song and gave it to the world?
Over the last two months, we have been finding out that answer and the results have been incredible. After the all star songwriting team of Max Martin, Savan Kotecha & Ali Payamireleased “Red Lights” on TikTok, the world’s most creative community have been reworking, creating and uploading their own versions onto the platform.
It’s been an exploration into creativity and the genre blending of modern songwriting. We’ve seen everything from country versions, hip hop, acoustic, dance and drum ‘n’ bass. It’s been a true collaboration project.
Today, StemDrop will broadcast a very special TikTok LIVE to spotlight some of the most exciting artists discovered through the program, with StemDrop visionary and music mogul Simon Cowell in attendance.
In addition to Simon Cowell and Jaden Smith in attendance, TikTok music curator Ari Elkins and Norwegian singer-songwriter Astrid S, who have been posting daily content on the @StemDropchannel will be co-hosting the event.
