DJ Snake without a doubt had himself breakout year in 2016 with the release of his full-length debut album Encore and its two accompanying hit singles, “Middle” and “Let Me Love You” with Justin Bieber, which managed to peak at No. 4 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
With the exception of a feature on Yellow Claw and Elliphant‘s “Good Day,” it’s easy to forget that the Parisian hit-maker hasn’t actually released any new material since releasing his debut (and, allegedly, final) LP last summer. However, today (September 21), DJ Snake‘s musical hiatus comes to an end with the release of his brand new single: “A Different Way,” featuring our longtime fave Lauv!
The track – co-written alongside Ed Sheeran and songwriting dream team Steve Mac, Johnny McDaid, Ilsey Juberand and Lindy Robbins – kicks off by keeping the focus on Lauv‘s smooth vocals in the intro, but then quickly builds up to a monster, moombahton-meets-pop drop that is undeniably catchy. “I will come running when you call my name/ Even a broken heart can beat again/ Forget about the one who caused you pain/ I swear I’ll love you in a different way,” Lauv croons.
It’s immediate from the very first play. You can count on this bop getting stuck in your head as well as played in every club for the next few months. DJ Snake has once again delivered a slick production that comes loaded with the best elements of pop and electronic music to create a song that’ll keep everyone firmly on the dancefloor – WIN!
