EXCLUSIVE: Social-Media Star Mackenzie Sol Releases “Laugh (Acoustic)” Video
Mackenzie Sol‘s “Laugh” was one of our favorite music videos of the summer. After all, it was all about people like you (and us) — the Mackenzie Sol fanatics!
“It’s a video of the fans,” the 17-year-old singer explained to us before the single was released, “and what they do is they send in their videos… My mouth is on the phone singing, and they put it on their mouth.” Here’s an example:
Since the MV was released in June, it’s hit six-digit views on YouTube, and it’s still on the rise. So, considering its success, you can bet that the social-media star wouldn’t stop there. Today, Mackenzie’s dropping the video for “Laugh (Acoustic)” — exclusively on Clevver.com!
“The reason I’m putting out “Laugh (Acoustic)” is because I feel like since recording the original I have matured so much musically,” MS revealed. “I love the original lyrically, but this acoustic version shows more of who I am as an artist. Recording it was fun — just a jam session in the studio! I was working on new music with my producer, Donnie Lyle, who is amazing and totally gets me, and he played this track, and I just started singing “Laugh” to it. It just happened so naturally and the whole recording was in one take.”
Jacob rose to fame on musical.ly and became one of the most popular Musers of all time. So it's not surprising that T3 Music Group execs saw a lot of potential in the 14-year-old and asked him to come on board to make original music.
His first ever single, "Sweatshirt," reached the Hot 100 charts in both the U.S. and Canada and since then he's released three more singles, an EP AND started a world tour!
