The song has been heard in the advertising campaign for the Fiat 500X Crossover (view the latest ad HERE) and in this trailer for the film Storks.

View Fitz and The Tantrums performing "HandClap" on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" HERE and see the official video, directed by Marc Klasfeld (Wiz Khalifa, Twenty One Pilots), HERE.
The Los Angeles Times called "HandClap" a contender for "2016's Song of the Summer" in this feature, which takes a look at the songwriting process behind the track and radio's ecstatic response to it. "Fitz & The Tantrums deliver hook upon hook on catchy new single 'HandClap,'" said Idolator and Harper's Bazaar hailed the track as a "cheeky dance floor seduction ballad."
USA Today put "Roll Up," another album track, on its list of the "10 best songs of the week," noting how it's "infectious, pop-y, and hard not to bop around to when it floats in your ears." The Boston Globe observed, "the album proves emphatically that Fitz can still craft a catchy chorus."Newsday said,"Fitz and The Tantrums' move from their retro-soul roots to the sparkling dance pop on their new album, 'Fitz and The Tantrums' (Elektra), might have been alarming if the Los Angeles band didn't do it so well."
Fitz and The Tantrumsis the follow-up to More Than Just a Dream, which has racked up over 76 million album streams to date. The 2013 album contained the Gold-certified singles "The Walker" and "Out Of My League." Both tracks topped Billboard's Alternative Songs chart - a feat accomplished by only three other artists in the chart's 25-year history.
Fitz and The Tantrums are: Fitz (vocals), Noelle Scaggs (vocals/tambourine), James King (saxophone), Jeremy Ruzumna (keyboards), John Wicks (drums) and Joseph Karnes (bass).
