Bera has premiered his new single and music video for ‘Summertime’, which is available now on iTunes. The song features up and coming artist Lil Playy, and is the follow up single to 2011’s ‘Favorite Things’. Although considered an emerging artist in the United States, the Georgian artist has achieved national success in his home country – drawing over 600,000 people over the course of ten shows during his first tour of Europe in 2011. Bera had the opportunity to work with such acclaimed producers as Scott Storch, Ryan Leslie, Jim Jones, Rob Fusari, DJ Khaled, and Rodney Jerkins in developing the sound he now showcases in ‘Summertime’.
“I was born with music,” says Bera. “My family always told me that art in general is freedom. If I became an artist, my job would also be my passion.” Bera now has the opportunity to expand his reach to the United States after several months of hard work in the studio and a two year hiatus since his last trip across the pond. “Back in the day, I never thought my songs would sound right in English. I remember being so scared that my accent would sound funny on a record, and Rob Fusari helped me a lot with my confidence and transition into writing songs in English.”
