Martin Garrix unveils new Mike Yung collaboration

Few DJs in the world are more popular than Martin Garrix right now. The Dutch star, and Number #1 DJ in the world, has the golden touch right now, and has scored a number of platinum certified hits, teaming up with the likes of Dua Lipa and Khalid.

But now, Mr Garrix has his eye on a brand new vocalist, spotting rising talent Mike Yung on YouTube, with the EDM star roping in the street performer on his brand new track. A busker from New York’s subway who went viral thanks to his spot on America’s Got Talent in 2017, Mike Yung reached the semi-finals. Now, Martin is teaming up with him, and added:

“Mike is an amazing singer. I saw videos of him singing in the subway of New York and fell in love with his voice. His story is just incredible. He has been singing in the subway for 38 years. I invited him to Amsterdam, we had an amazing week, wrote music on the boat w/ guitar. That’s the song which is releasing next. It’s a very emotional story, like a roller coaster journey for him. We’re excited to release the song!”
