Platinum-selling Tauren Wells released his new single, “Fake It” Feat. Aaron Cole, via Capitol Records/CCMG, marking the 10-time GRAMMY® nominee’s first release on the label.

Wells and Cole wrote “Fake It” with Chris Stevens – who produced the track with Tedd T. – and Emily Weisband.
In the official video for “Fake It,” which premiered as an exclusive on Facebook today, Wells gives a high-energy performance alongside Cole and a growing troupe of blazer-clad dancers. They shot the clip in Los Angeles with producer Raj Kapoor, who recently helmed Adele’s CBS special, and director Noah Clark. The Capitol/CCMG team was on hand at the video shoot to welcome Houston-based Wells to the label.
“Hold Us Together (Hope Mix),” Wells’ 2021 duet with H.E.R., is nominated for a GRAMMY® Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song and an NAACP Image Award in the Outstanding Gospel/Christian Song category.
