Up-and-coming artist Arlissa stopped by Elvis Duran and the Morning Show to promote her latest collaboration with Jonas Blue, “Hearts Ain’t Gonna Lie.” The 25-year-old first got recognition for her music on Facebook, racking up more than 1M video plays on the social network. Jonas Blue actually sent her a Facebook message to ask if she was interested in collaborating! That’s how the ball got rolling for the bubbly Brit who is now signed with Def Jam.
Arlissa also explained why her thumb tattoo has been getting some extra recognition lately. After performing on the Today Show with Kathie Lee and Hoda as the Elvis Duran “Artist of the Month,” her hand caught the attention of Shawn Mendes fans because she and the Canadian singer have the same swallow tattoo on their thumbs!
