The Human Condition by Jon Bellion on Apple Music

14 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Having already penned hits for superstars, Bellion takes a major solo turn. The Human Condition is an alternately beautiful and banging set of pure, modern pop that finds the Long Island singer/songwriter (and author of Eminem and Rihanna’s “Monster”) tackling heady subject matter in relatable terms. He channels the soothing bedside manner of Ben Gibbard on the velvety, hip-hop-informed soft-rock of “80’s Film,” and enlists the same choir that backed MJ on 1987’s “Man in the Mirror” for “Hand of God”—an ethereal, gospel-pop finale that detonates like fireworks in space.

About Jon Bellion

Singer/songwriter Jon Bellion makes contemporary pop that mixes R&B, hip-hop, and indie rock influences. Born on Long Island, New York, Bellion grew up focusing on his love of basketball. However, in his junior year of high school, his long-gestating love of music, spurred on by such influences as Timbaland, Pharrell Williams, J Dilla, and Eminem, came into bloom after he began writing songs on his brother's keyboard. After high school, Bellion enrolled in the music program at Long Island's Five Towns College, where he ensconced himself in the vibrant local music scene. After graduating, Bellion continued pursuing his performance career, eventually garnering wider attention after his song "The Monster" was included on Eminem's 2013 album, Marshall Mathers LP 2. The track, which featured a duet between Eminem and Rihanna, topped the charts in 12 countries, including hitting number one on the Billboard 200 in the United States. Also in 2013, Bellion released his debut mixtape, Translation Through Speakers, and followed it late in the year with the Separation mixtape. Featuring the social networking hits "Simple and Sweet" and "Human," a third mixtape, The Definition, appeared in the fall of 2014. The single "All Time Low" arrived in 2015 and accumulated tens of millions of streams by the time his debut album, The Human Condition, was released in June 2016 via Capitol Records. The album debuted at number five on the Billboard 200 chart. ~ Matt Collar
