KSHMR, Divine and Lit Killah releases their brand new music video for ‘Lion Heart’ featuring Karra and topline writer, vocalist and performer Jeremy Oceans
The new single “Lion Heart” sees the US sensation team up with Indian rapper DIVINE and Argentinian hip-hop phenom LIT Killah, while featuring Jeremy Oceans & KARRA in a shining role. The result is a refreshingly global sound that taps into pop, hip-hop, trap, and Latin vibes. KSHMR brings it all together in one mesmerizing tune, out now on Dharma Worldwide.
KSHMR, since exploding onto the scene in the mid 10’s with a string of festival hits, including his 2015 claim to fame ‘Secrets’ (a collab with Tiësto), he’s become a household name in the global music scene, continuously wowing his audience with headstrong big room electro house, heavily influenced by his Indian heritage.
Ranked high in the notorious DJ Top 100 list, his live shows have become milestone moments for many festival-goers, while every new single is eagerly awaited as the next pinnacle in the artist’s impressive resume.
Lion Heart is a record that’s been two years in the making, incorporating his recurring lion motif (referring to his 2016 debut album The Lion Across The Field) and fulfilling his longtime wish to work with these particular artists.
Setting out with a subdued mid-tempo beat, the mood intensifies with rhythmic piano chords and Jeremy Oceans’ catchy vocals, which ultimately build a bridge between West Coast hip-hop, passionate songwriting, and KSHMR’s worldy influences.
The record continues to evolve, as it breaks out in a lively pop chorus, giving KARRA the chance to shine, followed by a series of sharp, Latin styled raps by LIT Killah. When DIVINE drops in to provide a solid dose of Indian flavored vocals, it’s clear this tune brings the best of different worlds – all without losing any of its musical punch.
Destined to make this genre bending record, his ‘Lion Heart’ can be considered a milestone release, something unique and unforgettable, ready to take the stage for an eagerly awaiting crowd.
KSHMR adds: “’Lion Heart’ is such a special collaboration for me. You’ve got India, Argentina, Holland and the US all on the same track and each artist brings something magical to the table. For the production I drew inspiration from old school hip hop — my first passion — and the hip hop scene currently emerging in India, which I’ve been excited about for a long time now.”
