Fresh off a massive performance at Tomorrowland’s mainstage, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike are back with the first single, “She Knows”, from their upcoming debut studio album. “She Knows” is the perfect leadoff track for their upcoming album, Rewind + Repeat, as it’s a wonderful shot of nostalgia. DVLM teamed up with longtime collaborator and fellow superstar, David Guetta, as well as Akon. Guetta and Akon first teamed up back in 2009 for “Sexy Bitch” one of the first true crossover pop/EDM hits.
The production on the track is pretty minimal, there’s a light synth rhythm and a moderate buildup, but overall Akon’s vocals are allowed to really shine. Needless to say, this makes this a very radio/streaming friendly song. The final product is extremely pleasant to listen to; if you remember the TRL days like I do, Akon’s vocals are instantly satisfying. Again, simplicity; it’s just Akon crooning about a woman who knows how attractive she is. No matter how much things change, they always stay the same.
“It’s so great to team up with David again for this summer anthem – we’re also huge Akon fans, so to bring those two back together on our collaboration is next level for us.” DVLM say. “The sample from The Sunclub’s ‘Fiesta’ is part of our musical history and journey and sets the tone of what we want to achieve with our upcoming album: going back to our roots!”
Check out the latest from Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike x David Guetta x Afro Bros, “She Knows” with Akon, out now on Smash the House.
