R3HAB is never the type to shy away from a sonic adventure, and this time he’s done it again with a remake of “Party Girl,” StaySolidRocky‘s single turned viral hit via TikTok. While the original takes a mellow hip-hop approach, R3HAB ups the ante by infusing it with his signature high-energy electronic sound. The opening instrumental riff quickly progresses into a deep bassline complemented with upbeat, bouncy synths. The catchy lyrics of “Party Girl” are still present, though distorted and perfectly tuned to the new sound of the remake, which will make anyone want to dance. R3HAB previously put his own spin on “BAD!” by XXXTentacion last year, which saw the multi-talented producer dipping his toes into the rap/hip-hop world. He has also ventured into the pop and Latin world with the release of “Besame (I Need You)” with TINI and Reik recently, but he’s not slowing down just yet. Keep an eye out for the official announcement and more exciting music coming soon! In the meantime, vote for R3HAB in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs 2020 here.
“I haven’t done something like this in a while, and I must say it felt great working on this track. It is a different version with a different sound, but when you hear it, you will definitely recognize the touch of R3HAB.” – R3HAB on “Party Girl”
Over the last eight years, the Dutch/Moroccan artist Fadil El Ghoul – better known as R3HAB – has established himself as a leader at the forefront of modern electronic music. His talent has been called the “future of the craft” by the likes of Forbes and Billboard, and he’s circuited the globe’s best clubs and festivals, all without the backing of a formal record label. In 2017, R3HAB independently released his debut album “Trouble” through his imprint CYB3RPVNK, which amassed over a half-billion streams globally and officially placed R3HAB among electronic music’s heavy hitters. He made number 14 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 list in 2019, topping the charts with tracks like “Lullaby” and “Hold On Tight,” while his sophomore album “The Wave,” revealing more complex, emotional and experimental layers of himself, has amassed over 250 million streams on Spotify alone. In 2019 R3HAB‘s “All Around The World” with A Touch of Class quickly became his biggest ever record already topping 200M streams across platforms and achieving gold & platinum status in 8 countries. It was followed by “Flames,” R3HAB‘s collaboration with ZAYN.
