Collaborating once again with the songwriting dream team of Sam Romans & Ed Drewett, who co-wrote his massive 2017 hit ‘Mama’, Jonas began work on ‘Rise’ after hearing Jack & Jack interviewed on an LA radio station. The duo are a phenomenon in their own right: having risen to fame on Vine before turning to music, the childhood friends have a combined 85m followers on social media.
