Josh Strickland, currently starring in PEEPSHOW and “Holly’s World” on E!, debuted the video for his first ever solo artist single, “Report to the Floor.”
The world premier of the video took place after last night’s finale of the hit reality show. “Report to the Floor” was co-produced by Grammy Award winning producer Damon Elliott and by Norwegian pop/dance producer Axident. The single has now taken the world by storm and is currently #3 on the iTunes Dance Charts.
“Report to the Floor” is the first single from an upcoming EP. The song has been a fixture on the iTunes Dance Charts for over six weeks, since its release on February 16th.
“I am so happy with the way the first single came out,” said Strickland. “It was such a thrill to work with a producer of Damon’s caliber and the work that Axident did is amazing. I really feel so comfortable with the finished product. ‘Report to the Floor’ is a really fun song with a great beat. I really hope everyone enjoys listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it.”
Strickland met Grammy award winning producer Damon Elliott a year ago when Elliott was producing the theme song to “Holly’s World.” Strickland performed on that song and the two began collaborating in the studio shortly after that. Pairing Strickland’s sensational voice with that of some hit dance tracks prepared by Elliott and Axident exclusively for Strickland, together they have created music that makes people want to dance.
