The White Panda is reborn and rejuvenated in his “Hands On Me” video. Hailing from Chicago, the hitmaker first began sharing music online in 2009. Working alongside a partner, they earned the title of “the mashups kings” with their innovative mixes. More recently, the budding superstar worked on remixes for the likes of Zayn Malik, Bebe Rexha and Betty Who. In 2017, he showed off his brilliant sensibilities with a feisty mashup that landed on Michael Jackson’s Scream album. However, this year he decided to begin pursuing solo material in earnest. Hitting the studio to churn out some original content, he launched a new project with the release of “Hands On Me” back in June. Linking up with Loote on the shimmering anthem, he may just land a solid hit right out of the gate.

On it, Loote’s vocalist Emma Lov delivers a standout performance. “Baby get your hands on me,” she chants on the loved-up chorus. The track has racked up more than 1 million streams on Spotify, and it is sure to be a fan-favorite when White Panda embarks on his How Good We Got It Tour later this month. But today (September 7), he rolled out the official video. In the tongue-in-cheek release, the masked producer pays tribute to the recent changes in his career. Entering a warehouse, he goes through a series of transformations that help introduce fans to his latest iteration. Of course, those transformations wouldn’t be possible without the help of wax strips, a new wardrobe, a chainsaw and a futuristic new mask. After all, what rebirth is truly complete without a couple whacks from a chainsaw?

“‘Hands On Me’ was a special song because it was the first original I put out,” the mysterious producer explained in a statement. “This video is the first visual showcase of the new White Panda. Sending a chainsaw through the old mask, I wanted to pay homage, but evolve into a brand new panda as our fans have all grown and evolved with us. We can’t wait to show everyone the new White Panda on tour this fall.” We are proud to partner with White Panda to premiere the “Hands On Me” video. Check it out up top!
