"Fly or Die" was written and produced by Rock Mafia, best known for their breakout success in writing, producing and launching the careers of major recording artists, resulting in more than 50 million albums sold. Rock Mafia also creates and performs music under the Rock Mafia brand as it did with “The Big Bang," a song and video released independently that has sold more than 1 million downloads worldwide.
Continuing its artistic progression with "Fly or Die," Rock Mafia is launching a global movement around the concept of "pop activism." In the video, this new level of consciousness comes to life through a little girl who finds the power within to save the world. The music video for "Fly Or Die" was beautifully directed and animated by Micah Chambers Goldberg, and is a magical vision for one of the coolest songs of the summer.
