It’s a busy year for DJ Snake. Playing to some of the biggest festivals such as the winter edition of Tomorrowland (also being set to headline the mainstage of Tomorrowland this July) and already releasing some of his best work yet, 2019 is looking promising for the Paris born producer. Calling him an innovator wouldn’t be wrong, with him constantly bridging the gap between Pop, Hip-Hop and Rap with EDM through collaborations with major artists such as Gucci Mane, Selena Gomez and Cardi B to name just a few, managing to stay true to his EDM style whilst seamlessly blending it with completely different styles.
Hyping fans up on social media by calling his latest track the ‘song of the summer’, DJ Snake – real name William Sami Étienne Grigahcine – promised to drop ‘Loco Contigo’ on Friday, but pleasantly surprised fans with a last minute decision to unleash the track on Thursday, one day earlier than planned. Coming in the form of yet another huge collab, singer J Balvin of ‘Mi Gente’ fame and rapper Tyga were brought into the studio to put their creative talents to work, and the result is a fresh new summer anthem. Transporting the listener straight to a tropical summer-like world, the French mastermind works his magic on providing infectiously toe-tapping beats whilst J Balvin and Tyga expertly sing and rap, bringing completely new and fresh vibes to the track.
Already ranking up well over two million views in less than a day, DJ Snake dropped the official music video, which can be viewed below.
