Coca-Cola's latest ad for Diet Coke, or 'Coca-Cola Light,' as its called in some countries, just makes you want to go on an adventure. The one-minute commercial empowers you to travel, hang out with friends, do something crazy -- because loving something, or someone, is worlds away from just liking them. And the soft drink brand chose the perfect song to accompany the spot, with its upbeat, rock sound. What is it?
John Newman’s aesthetic is as distinct as his voice. A pompadour with a defiant streak of blonde sits atop his towering physique, which is sleek and tailored in all black.

From Otis Redding and James Brown to Jackson 5, Michael Jackson and Prince, Newman attributes soul music (and those artists) as his biggest influence, which is evident on his latest release, ‘Tribute.’
John Newman's poignant video for his new single, 'Out of My Head,' perfectly illustrates the meaning behind the heartbreaking ballad.
