The track produced by WYNNE [MGK, Jaden Smith] was created and written in collaboration by John and songwriter Steph Jones. Steph, too, co-wrote John’s critically acclaimed single, “if we never met.” Throughout his new single, “A LOT,” John seemingly sings out to an ex-lover while guitar riff blends in the background. John references his ex directly, pondering, “Do you ever wear my sweatshirt when it’s colder?” As the chorus sets off, John declares, “I think about you a lot.”
John spoke about the single and its meaning, stating, “I never realized how often I say the word ‘a lot’ until I wrote this song. The story is about that feeling when you can’t get someone out of your head, except for now that person is out of the picture. It’s about replaying memories over and over, thinking about the person you wish you never lost. A simple concept really, but I felt like it was one my fans would relate to right away. You ever mess something up so bad and then all you have left is the memory of how good it used to be? That’s A LOT.”
The music video was directed by Erik Rojas [Jessie J, Dillon Francis] and illustrates the lyrics that John sings to a tee. Throughout the video, the camera cuts to reminiscent times shared between lovers to scenes of John alone at the bar.
John joins Marc E. Bassy on his North American winter tour. The tour is set to begin on February 14 at the Varsity Theater in Minneapolis, MN, continuing through many top locations throughout the country, concluding March 12 in San Diego, CA at Observatory North Park.

About John K
John K was originally born and raised in Orlando, FL, but now is a Los Angeles-based singer/ songwriter. Musical talent ran in John’s family, as his father was an amateur guitarist and his grandmother the daughter of a professional trumpet player. His passion for music ran in his blood, which made no surprise when John asserted himself into the industry in 2017. John’s breakthrough song “if we never met,” holds platinum accreditation, and has been appreciated by Billboard, Flaunt, L’Officiel and Rolling Stone. John’s total streams add up to over half-a-billion, and his career just continues to grow. Most lately, John released his album in case you miss me [Epic Records] in 2021, and as we dive into 2022, we cannot wait to see what else is up his sleeve.
