Nominated for the iHeartRadio MMVA for Best New Canadian Artist or Group, Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine rose to stardom in the second episode of CTV’s The Launch. As huge fans of the rising stars, we were more than excited when the duo took to the iHeartRadio MMVAs red carpet to perform their hit debut single “Ain’t Easy.”
Co-written by OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, iHeartRadio MMVAs nominee Camila Cabello, and Zach Skelton, “Ain’t Easy” was produced by Tedder and re-arranged by Woods and Fine. Since its release, “Ain’t Easy” has received heavy radio rotation across all iHeartRadio Canadian brands and has been certified Platinum by Music Canada. With the song’s upbeat electro-pop transitions, it’s undeniable that “Ain’t Easy” will go down in history as one of the best Canadian bops of the summer.
The duo’s performance of “Ain’t Easy” on the iHeartRadio MMVAs red carpet only confirmed the single’s success, as the crowd responded with nothing but excitement and smiles. Watch the full performance below.
