JC Stewart started 2021 on a high when he was named as MTV’s first global Push artist of the year. The single ‘Break My Heart’ then continued to fire his momentum skywards. Co-written with Niall Horan and broadening his already engaging pop appeal, it reached a remarkable 37 New Music Friday playlists, a total that matched Taylor Swift’s single from the same week.
His previous single, ‘Loud’, again reiterated his phenomenal ascension with fresh Radio 1 support from Mollie King, Scott Mills and Chris Stark. He also making waves internationally, resulting in his first Gold disc in the Netherlands. Another highlight of the year came when he was nominated for Best Push Performance at the recent MTV VMAs.

His music is powered by a voice as real and powerful as the heartfelt emotions he explores. Yet while his talent is remarkable, his personality is relatable. His sharp wit and inclusive nature are immensely popular at social media, a following which exploded after Jennifer Aniston shared his quarantine-themed twist on the ‘Friends’ theme last year.
hat growing following includes some famous fans too.

His first major collaborator came when he co-wrote ‘Hollywood’, a song which later featured on Lewis Capaldi’s huge debut album.
