Outasight Provides Catchy Track for Pepsi 'X Factor' Commercial
If you're a fan of 'The X Factor,' you may have seen a new Pepsi commercial during the program, which features pop stars like Britney Spears, Kanye West, Michael Jackson and more. But those celebs aren't providing the music for the clip. That catchy track in the background that you've been loving is actually by New York's Outasight.
The pop song is called 'Tonight Is the Night,' and it's not only featured on Pepsi's national ad campaign, but it's also on the Yonkers native's latest mixtape, 'Get It Together.' Outasight teamed up with DJ Benzi on the 17-song set, which includes even more gems like the high-energy song from the commercial.
Outasight blends hip-hop, pop and soul to create a unique sound, which is highlighted on the seven mixtapes and EPs he's released over the years. But, with the success of 'Tonight Is the Night,' it's the singer/rapper's time to shine. Fans can get psyched for the release of his forthcoming debut album, and catch him on tour with Gym Class Heroes through the end of the October.
Watch the Pepsi 'Musical Icons' video and listen to the entirety of Outasight's 'Tonight Is the Night' below. If you like what you hear, you can download your own copy of the single, which is available on iTunes now.
