We've covered R3HAB before: he's a Dutch-Moroccan multi-platinum DJ and producer who goes by the name of Fadil El Ghoul in real life. He's been expanding his versatile and innovative catalog of dance music for the better part of a decade. With a long list of breakthrough remixes for household names like Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, and Calvin Harris, and a string of his own massive hits (like "All Around The World (La La La)" which is closing in on half a billion streams on Spotify) he has proven to be one of the most talented and forward-thinking artists in the game.
For his latest release "I Wanna Run Away" R3HAB joins forces with leading African artist Mr Eazi and Gold-certified alt-pop singer-songwriter Wafia for a cross-genre burner that mixes tropical beats with an upbeat sophistication and a reggae-inspired vocal hook. The smooth result puts this trio of heavy hitters right where they want to be—on that cutting edge between dance, electronic, and African pop with a lyrical theme that is perfect for an impromptu island getaway. Mr Eazi's soul-flavored afropop vocal inflection blends perfectly with Wafia's intimate sugar for a sound that is effervescent and unforgettable.
