Singer-songwriter Jesse McCartney has had the kind of career that most young artists dream for themselves. Ask the New York-born artist to recall some of the highlights and he’ll tell you about meeting two U.S. presidents (Barack Obama and George W. Bush), playing to thousands of devoted fans in Tokyo (where he watched the non-English-speaking audience sing along to every word), and meeting his musical heroes Stevie Wonder and Craig David. All that was done before the release of his 2018 single "Better With You," his first new music since his well-received 2014 album In Technicolor. It premiered on PAPER Magazine then climbed Spotify's US and Global viral charts. The press and performance swiftly came afterward from Z100 with Elvis Duran, Paste Magazine, MTV, SiriusXM, Billboard, Huffington Post, and V Magazine. The success thus far has helped McCartney reconnect with a feeling that he hadn't had before with his music: the freedom to write as he wishes, everything from his perspective.
