Jacob Sartorius Drops 'By Your Side'
Jacob Sartorius finds his feet as a pop star with new single 'By Your Side.'

And the award for the year’s most surprising collaboration goes to Jacob Sartorius and Blackbear! They join forces for a mellow, mid-tempo bop called “Hit Me Back,” which is as catchy as it is relatable. What could a 14-year-old social media sensation and a heavily-tattooed rapper possibly have in common? A mutual frustration with the heartbreakers that leave you on read. “What’s up with that? Hit you all day but you never hit me back,” goes the chorus. “What’s up with that? Facetimed you, called — you never hit me back.”

“It was amazing working with a great producer and songwriter like Blackbear,” Jacob said of the experience. “I’m excited to be dropping the lyric video today as well. Be sure to watch the lyric video, download the track and stay tuned for info on the music video!” After a rocky start, the teen is really getting the hang of this pop star thing. And surrounding himself with credible artists like the Digital Druglord rapper is only to help his cause. We’re excited to premiere the lyric video below.
