Warner Music Group/Atlantic Records pop singer Cody Simpson and friends take a moment to enjoy the high energy fun of popular Raw Thrills arcade games Superbikes 2 and Terminator Salvation in his latest music video, “Wish U Were Here.” The song, from Cody’s new album “PARADISE,” was recorded throughout the first half of 2012 and highlights fun times with friends and fans alike as part of a non-stop schedule that included school, recording, touring and countless TV and promotional appearances. With over 3.4 million Twitter followers, 3.3 million Facebook friends and 150 million+ YouTube views, the Queensland, Australia-born singer/songwriter continues upward trends with a strong social media presence and continually increasing radio airplay. (Cody’s “Wish U Were Here” is currently #8 on Radio Disney’s Top 30 countdown.)
Simpson has toured nearly non-stop and has recently performed at concerts with Big Time Rush, Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen, among other leading pop artists. He will continue touring by headlining a North American “PARADISE” tour in February 2013 just after pairing up with Justin Bieber next month (Nov 2012) for a European tour which is already nearly sold out.
