It’s time to give some proper love to R3HAB.
The Dutch DJ-producer’s remixes have been a staple on my seasonal dance playlists for years now, but I’ve yet to spotlight him for his very own artist project, which has seen him transition from electro house hopeful into full-blown crossover king that’s accumulated hundreds of millions of streams.
After releases with A-listers KSHMR, Krewella and YouTube sensation Lia Marie Johnson over the past few months, R3HAB is back with another major collaboration — this time, featuring Disney’s Descendants star Sofia Carson – who, if you didn’t already know, has a rising pop career of her very own (see 2017’s “Ins and Outs.”)
The track titled “Rumors” is a blissful future bass-infused pop production, and Sofia‘s infectious, feather-light vocal chops flow seamlessly alongside the tracks bouncy and well tempered production values. “Don’t you know the rumors?/ They talk about, talk about the humor/ They say you that you’re never gonna treat me right/ I know that you’re forever, it’s only one night, one night…” Sofia croons on the hook.
It’s the kind of fresh and carefully balanced electronic pop we’ve come to expect from R3HAB – INTO IT!
