Jesse McCartney is widely known as a singer songwriter from New York City. During his rise to fame, he was also a producer and actor on television. He made several guest appearances on popular TV shows including Disney Channel’s The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, CBS’s CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, and Freeform’s Young and Hungry. His debut album Beautiful Soul sold over 2.5 million albums and 8 million singles in 2004. Due to his success, he was nominated for Best New Artist in the 2005 American Music Awards. In 2008, his multi-platinum single Leavin was the #1 most played song at Top 40 Radio for six weeks. It sold over 2 million singles that year.
McCartney has been very successful making national headlining tours, while also performing alongside artists including Jordin Sparks (2008), New Kids On The Block (2009), and Backstreet Boys (2013). He also co-wrote the 2008 hit song Bleeding Love with One Republic’s Ryan Tedder for Leona Lewis’ debut album. Compared to his previous album, In Technicolor, Jesse’s newest single Better With You is described as more sonically organic, acoustic-driven style of what his fans are used to. The song represents true love, expressing how someone can rely and understand their significant other.
“It feels fresh and contemporary to me,” said McCartney. “Things are contentious. I think a song about finding a safe place with a partner is an uplifting message.”
