James Reid‘s song “California Lovin” will be available on all major streaming platforms on June 30, 2022. Before this, the Filipino-Australian singer, songwriter and actor partnered with Scotch whisky brand Johnnie Walker to celebrate World Music Day on June 21, 2022.
World Music Day celebrates musicians across the globe and their contribution towards making the world we live in more harmonious. Joining the celebration, Johnnie Walker raises a toast to progress in music through its cultural partners called The Walkers.
As cultural change makers, The Walkers represent the latest chapter of Johnnie Walker’s famous Keep Walking campaign inspiring progress. Being part of the global community of Walkers, Reid is leading the way to inspire progress within the Filipino music scene by taking Original Pinoy Music (OPM) to the world stage.
Reid’s releases in 2022 alone had a more global push with collaborations with international artists as well as songs that are produced abroad. Fans can definitely expect more world-class singles and performances from him.
In partnership with Johnnie Walker, Reid created Johnnie California Highball, the perfect drink to enjoy while listening to “California Lovin”. Hints of apple and citrus meet the signature smoke of a Johnnie Walker Black Label in this custom highball, creating a taste that instantly transports you to the bright, warm summers of California, United States.
This perfectly balanced drink with afternotes of vanilla, completes the “California Lovin” experience. The world first got to experience Reid’s new single with its performance video release on the Press Play platform of The Grammy Awards on May 26, 2022.
The release of the single along with the custom highball shortly after World Music Day strings together perfectly with the celebration of musicians across the globe and their contribution towards making the world move in harmony and unison.
