New music series MTV Jammin’ features artists dropping by our studio to perform

19 September 2018

Something magical happens when a musician enters the studio, sits down and begins to perform. In MTV Jammin', our new raw music series, we capture artists in sessions both intimate and casual.

The setting is our freshly minted MTV studio, decked out with a psychedelic mural, classic leather sofa and the highest-quality instruments from our friends at Swee Lee.

It gets real in here, with heartfelt renditions, inspired covers and radical reinterpretations. Watch Alessia Cara tear apart the uplifting beats of her hit single 'Growing Pains' and rework it with a soulful, laid-back treatment. Or 5 Seconds Of Summer, whose new material, while spacey and mysterious on record, is intriguingly stripped-down on acoustic guitar and given new life.
