Vice has kicked off 2017 with the official video for his genre-bending single “Steady 1234” featuring Jasmine Thompson & Skizzy Mars. The visual follows the triumphant win of Musical.ly’s NextWave competition, which generated over 450k videos and garnered over 40 million views. Still climbing, the track currently has over 35 million plays worldwide and is sitting at #17 on the overall Spotify US Chart – thanks to massive playlist support via Today’s Top Hits, Teen Party, Mood Booster & more.
Directed by Amber Park, the colorful video breathes new life into the track with fluid choreography and mesmerizing imagery courtesy of CGI geniuses Randy Cano and Brian Henry. The track also recently received the dancehall remix treatment via Bad Royale (LISTEN).
"The video I feel accurately depicts the feeling of love not always making sense. The director, Amber Park did a really great job delivering the message of ‘Steady 1234’ by juxtaposing strong graphics alongside the graceful dancers." – Vice
"Once in a while you find a song that's so catchy you just can't get it out of your head. ‘Steady 1234’ is definitely one of those songs for me. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Vice and Skizzy on the track. They helped take me to a place I haven’t been before musically" – Jasmine Thompson
"I was excited off the jump when I got the track. I’ve been a big fan of Vice for some years now and I love Jasmine Thompson's voice. It's something different for me, but I did my thing and tried to create a vibe.” – Skizzy Mars

More on Jasmine Thompson:
London-born singer-songwriter Jasmine Thompson has released multiple EPs showcasing both her affinity for sparkling dance-pop and soulful, haunting pop covers. She is currently working on another EP via Atlantic Records that will showcase her diverse talents, a follow up to her ADORE EP. The title track from that release achieved radio success in a slew of European countries including Top 10 airplay in both Italy and Poland. More recently, Thompson lent her vocals to Thomas Jack on his single “Rise Up” and German DJ HUGEL on his track “Where We Belong.”
Thompson’s YouTube channel now has over 2.5 million subscribers and 500 million YouTube views. Her songs (along with the tracks she has been featured on) have amassed 1 billion streams worldwide! As something of a muse to a host of DJ’s and EDM producers; Jasmine has been featured on Felix Jaehn’s “Ain’t Nobody (Loves Me Better)” remix, Robin Schulz’s single “Sun Goes Down,” and has had multi-platinum DJ/producer Avicii personally ask her to cover his single “The Days.” He called her version “breathtaking.”
More on Skizzy Mars:
Manhattan is a borough of sounds just as diverse as its denizens. Against that backdrop, rapper, songwriter, and artist Skizzy Mars always set himself apart since his childhood in Harlem. With equal readiness to name check Morrissey, nod to big screen romances, and precisely spit an ode to a stranger on the subway, an outlier perspective fuels his full-length debut, Alone Together.
As soon as the album went live on iTunes, it captured #1 on the Top Hip-Hop/Rap Albums Chart and #3 on the Overall Top Albums Chart. Skizzy has seen success after success since he began making music at 17. In 2011, his introductory single “Douchebag” would ignite enthusiasm from numerous blogs. Skizzy built a fervent fan base by engaging a marathon of touring alongside the likes of G-Eazy, Logic, B.o.B, Ty Dolla $ign, and more. His 2013 mixtape Phases and 2014 follow-up Pace became fan favorites, while he started to infiltrate the mainstream on 2015’s The Red Balloon Project EP. Buoyed by the single “Time” (feat. G-Eazy & Olivver the Kid), it debuted at #4 on Billboard’s Top Rap Albums chart and peaked at #35 on the Top 200.
