Canadian Pop Singer Jesse Giddings Releases "Back To Me" feat. Tiana on Itunes Canada
TORONTO, CANADA, JUNE 7, 2013: Responding to nationwide demand from his Canadian fan base, pop star Jesse Giddings released his new single, "Back To Me," on iTunes Canada.
The single was originally released April 2, 2013 on iTunes in the United States, but was not available in Canada. Many of Giddings' Canadian fans became excited about the song after hearing it on the radio, which prompted Giddings to release the single Thursday, June 6, 2013 on iTunes Canada.
The song - influenced by Celine Dion's hit, "It's All Coming Back To Me Now," - was produced by Kemar 'Flava' McGregor, and features a guest appearance from Jamaican dancehall vocalist Tiana.
McGregor said "Back To Me" attracted a passionate following on internet social media during the past two months -- enough to create anticipation among pop-music lovers within Jesse Giddings' Canadian homeland.
"Canadian fans wanted the song to be released," said McGregor. "It was on the radio and it was getting a lot of buzz, but it wasn't available for sale in Canada. People were talking about it on their Twitter pages, and on their Facebook pages, because Jesse Giddings is very popular in Canada. His fans were saying things like: 'This is going to be my summer jam,' 'I could play this song all day,' and they were asking, 'When will the song be available in Canada?' We knew we had to release the song in Canada for the sake of Jesse's fans."
