Category Archives: Artist to Watch Interview Nick Hissom

Nick Hissom is ready to take over the pop music world.  He just dropped a new single, “He Ain’t Better,” and has been hard at work on new music with some of the best in the business.  Nick has worked closely with producer Steve Morales, who has collaborated with Christina Aguilera, Santana, and Enrique Iglesias, to name a few.  The track was released by Massive Entertainment, in partnership with Sony Music and RED MUSIC, a new venture from Nick, Steve and Derrek Jackson.  The track has already gotten nearly 1 million plays on Spotify since it’s release.

We interviewed Nick Hissom while he was in NYC and learned more about his new single, his music style, and his go to karaoke song.  We had a blast chatting with him in Central Park.  His new single, “He Ain’t Better” is out now and it’s a fun bop with a catchy beat and message.  Watch our interview with Nick below!
