Steve Aoki & Nicky Romero

Steve Aoki & Nicky Romero – Be Somebody feat. (feat. Kiiara)

Akin to a coming together of two forces, collaborations between the stars of Dance music always deliver a product to behold. It usually produces a track of the ages as well as for the ages. Arguably, American producer and entertainer Steve Aoki and Dutchman Nicky Romero‘s recent collaboration titled ‘Be Somebody’ could be said to be of the same caliber. Featuring American singer/songwriter Kiiara on the vocals, ‘Be Somebody’ is a sumptuous take from the producers that creates quite a laid back environment for the listener and makes for a thoroughly enjoyable experience altogether.

While the track draws from contemporary production styles, the influence on the percussion work from both producers is clear as day to any keen listener. Getting things going with heavy synth-work, ‘Be Somebody’ is a short listen and captures quite a punch in the three minutes which make it a prime candidate to dominate the radio waves across the world. As Kiiara’s mature vocal shift guides the listener through the well crafted production details, the track gradually grows into its own and delivers a thoroughly riveting ‘drop’ that is assured to get you humming along. Another mellifluous feather in the cap of the two production stalwarts and a rising vocalist, ‘Be Somebody’ is the undoubtedly a hit for the here and now.

‘Be Somebody’ is available for purchase on Apple Music here and on other platforms here.
