By  | 

DJ’s/Producer’s are taking over our radio waves with collaborations with some of today’s top artists. Last year the Chainsmokers released “Closer” feat. Halsey, Calvin Harris released “This Is What You Came For” feat. Rihanna and Martin Garrix released “In The Name of Love” feat. Bebe Rexha. Wondering what they are up to now that it’s 2017? Also wondering whom we have added onto our must listen to DJ collabs?

1) Maritn Garrix & Dua Lipa  “Scared To Be Lonely”

Dua Lipa’s strong vocals combined with Garrix’s musical ability produce hit after hit, makes people want more from these two. The track has strong lyrics such as “Is the only reason you’re holding me tonight, ‘Cause we’re scared to be lonely?” This Dutch producer and English singer sure make a great team, both being around the same age and exuding youthful energy plus talent. Check out this tune and the music video HERE! Social Media – @DUALIPA & @MartinGarrix

2) The Chainsmokers & Coldplay “Something Just Like This”

The whole track is a modern day fairy tale. It’s beautiful and there’s just enough EDM fusion to realize it’s not just a Coldplay song. The Chainsmoker’s have been unstoppable after their release of #Selfie, 2 years ago. Make sure to listen to the track HERE. Social Media -@Coldplay & @TheChainsmokers

3) Mike Dupree feat. Maddi Jane “Falling Up”

Mike Dupree is not new to the industry, he has produced records for T.I., Trey Songz and more. “Falling Up” featuring Maddi Jane was his debut single as a DJ. “Falling up” melts in your ears, with delicate composition and Maddi Jane’s dreamy vocals. This is one of those songs that can be put on replay over and over. Maddi Jane is taking over the world of music, having such mature voice for such a young artist. The KC native, Mike Dupree is getting ready to release his next single to follow up “Falling Up”, make sure to listen to the song HERE! Social Media – @MikeDupreeMusic & @MaddiJaneMusic

4) Kygo feat. Selena Gomez “It Ain’t Me”

This anthem like tune is a great song to set the tone for 2017. The instrumentation is not over done and Selena’s voice perfectly suits the track. Looking back at Kygo’s first Vevo release “Firestone” feat. Conrad Sewell, he has grown immensely in the music world and in numbers. “It Ain’t Me” has over 100Million views on youtube. It is on Billboards 100 List and it’s Kygo’s first song to hit top 10. Listen to the track HERE ! Social Media – @KygoMusic & @SelenaGomez

5) Calvin Harris feat. Frank Ocean & Migos “Slide”

Calvin Harris, Migos and Frank Ocean. What could that sound like? Well A good time, a classic yet new age tune. It’s a broad spectrum of colors, really. Calvin’s “This Is What You Came For” feat. Rihanna hit over 1 Billion views on youtube. This is well on it’s way to reach that same, if not a higher level of success. Listen to the track HERE

6) Zedd & Alessia Cara “Stay”

Both Alessia and Zedd have become household names at this point. Their music is being played all over the radio and they never fail to enchant the listeners. “Stay” is a perfect combination of who they both are as artists, Zedd being the DJ/Producer and Alessia being the voice. It’s a rather simple song, lyric wise but the what they each bring to the table is what makes it so special. Listen to the track HERE

7) David Guetta feat. Nicki Minaj & Lil Wayne “Light My Body Up”

French DJ David Guetta just released the lyric video to “Light My Body” feat. Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne. Nicki is rapping and singing so there’s a sense of hip hop but with plenty of EDM/POP. It’s a fantastic collaboration between top names in music. The highlight of “Light My Body Up” is definitely Nicki’s intro, her word play with Icy and her name is great.
