    Who doesn't love a house partay?

    Heads up! RCA Records singer, songwriter and producer Sammy Adams will debut the music video for his first single "Blow Up" on VEVO on Dec. 22. Shot in his hometown of Cambridge, Mass., and directed by Nathan Crooker, the video features Adams leading a crew of kids, comprised of fans who were recruited via Twitter, to the ultimate house party.

    Less than a month later, Adams will make his nationwide television debut, performing "Blow Up" on Conan which airs at 11 PM EST/PST on TBS. So if you like what you see on Thursday, then make sure to tune into his late night TV debut in a few weeks.

    "Blow Up" is the first single off Adams' still-untitled debut RCA Records album, due out Spring 2012.

    Some deets on Adams: He is 24 and is currently residing in NYC. Classically trained on piano since childhood, interests grew into producing and later into singing / rapping. It was while sitting in class at Trinity College (where Adams was a political science major and captain of the soccer team) that he came up with the idea for his breakthrough single "I Hate College" — a cheeky remix of Asher Roth's "I Love College," which he recorded in his dorm room.

    Adams independently released album Boston's Boy shot to the top of the iTunes Hip-Hop/Rap chart on its first day out in March 2010, selling nearly 8,000 digital copies that week and outpacing albums by Lil Wayne and DJ Khaled. His independent viral videos have garnered millions of YouTube views, including "I Hate College" (6 mil) and "Driving Me Crazy" (3.4 mil). He performed over 100 shows and sold over 100K tickets across North America in the last year including a set at Lollapalooza and a sold out headlining show at New York City's Terminal 5.

    Are you going to watch "Blow Up" on Thursday, Dec. 22?
