Just Tommy, from Tempe, AZ., has a new video for his kick-ass single, “Playing for Likes,” out November 21, 2020. The song and video have a message that highlights avid users of all social media platforms.
The song, “Playing for Likes” is loosely about social media and the role it plays in our lives today, but it could be applied to other aspects of life as well” says Just Tommy, and “The concept started with a question: What drives us to share the things we do on social media with our friends, family, followers, strangers, and the world?
Just Tommy says, “The inspiration behind the video for “Playing for Likes” is in the name. Originally, I’d planned on having a bunch of people submit tiktok-style videos and then my dude would stitch them together and make a sick video. Because people are people, that plan zero percent worked, so I went to plan B and just shot a music video and had some fun with my family. The kids in the video are my cousins.”
The “Playing for Likes” video was shot in Phoenix, AZ. The single was produced by super Producer/Engineer Chuck Alkazian (Pop Evil, Soundgarden, Tantric) at legendary Pearl Sound Studios (Asking Alexandria, Eminem, Filter).
