After their latest collaboration ‘Good Example‘, R3HAB and Andy Grammer Drops a New Single “Close To You“
After releasing “Distant Memory” with Timmy Trumpet and W&W, R3HAB shows off a more radio-friendly style with melodies of organic instrumentals and an easy rhythm, which is complemented by Grammer‘s soulful vocals. With lyrics that touch upon feeling connected to someone despite time or space, “Close To You” has an emotive element that serves as a reminder of why Grammer‘s songs like “Don’t Give Up On Me” and “Honey, I’m Good” have made him a favorite artist among millions of listeners. Check out what both artists had to say about their exciting new collaboration “Close To You“:
R3HAB shares, “When I want to make a next-level feel-good record, I call Andy. He has a bright outlook of the world and channels it into inspiring songs. We loved working on ‘Good Example‘ and have been looking for the right follow-up ever since. Andy shared a demo of ‘Close To You,’ and we were able to bring it to life quickly. I’m excited for the world to hear this song and dance along.“
Dutch/Moroccan DJ and producer Fadil El Ghoul, better known as R3HAB, has been trailblazing his way through dance music for the better part of the last decade. From his breakthrough hit remix of Afrojack, Pitbull and Ne-Yo‘s “Give Me Everything” to his dance anthems, such as “All Around The World (La La La)” and “Lullaby,” which have collectively amassed over 600M streams, to his collaborations with the likes of ZAYN, Andy Grammer, Sofia Carson, Olivia Holt and more, R3HAB has proven to be one of the most talented and forward-thinking artists in the game. He partnered with Spotify and GATTÜSO to create the first-ever official “mint” single release.
Andy Grammer adds, “When you are with your person, and there is an uncanny feeling that it was meant to be. That’s what I was thinking when writing ‘Close To You.”
Andy Grammer has been inspiring listeners around the world. Andy has scored seven chart-topping hits, which together have been streamed over a billion times worldwide—including his first break-out songs “Keep Your Head Up” and its follow-up “Fine By Me.” His 2014 sophomore album, Magazines or Novels, went gold and yielded the gold single “Good To Be Alive (Hallelujah).”
The standout song “Fresh Eyes” achieved platinum status and reached over 350 million streams. In addition to reaching fans through his music, Andy also makes a strong connection through live shows as he consistently sold-out headline gigs on his 2018 and 2019 tours. Building upon that foundation, his 2019 fourth full-length, Naive, amplifies both his message and musicianship.
