Hailee Steinfeld and DNCE Team Up for ‘Rock Bottom’ Rework
Hailee Steinfeld, Academy Award-nominated actress, official “Bad Blood” squad member, and Pitch Perfect 2 star, turned heads last year when she announced she’d been signed to Republic Records and would be releasing her debut foray into music.
An actor seriously transitioning to music can be hit or miss, so it was refreshing to to hear that Hailee could not only actually sing, but had an upbeat dance-pop hit on her hands: “Love Myself.” The Mattman & Robin-produced self-empowerment pop jam dropped on August 7, climbing all the way to No. 30 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Comprised of four dance-pop tracks (“Love Myself,” “Rock Bottom,” “You’re Such A,” and “Hell Nos and Headphones”), Steinfeld’s debut EP, HAIZ, was subsequently released on November 13. Unfortunately, the release was met with some confusion as follow-up singles were seemingly selected and then cancelled, with “Hell Nos and Headphones” being touted as the next single only to be scrapped for “You’re Such A” instead.
But finally we know what the emerging pop artist’s next single will really be: “Rock Bottom.” In addition to the track being officially released as a single on February 26, the sweeping indie-pop anthem will also get a refresh thanks to Joe Jonas and his “Cake by the Ocean“-eating band-mates, DNCE. The collaboration was announced on Steinfeld’s Twitter on February 12:
