R3HAB Releases Meaningful Vocal Single “One More Dance” with Norwegian artist Alida !

By EDM Nations – November 13, 2020 2 0

With his combination of innate artistry and innovative attitude, R3HAB is continuing his journey. Most listeners will relate to the track’s emotive lyrics, which call to mind having that “one more dance” at your favorite show to gather the strength to face life’s challenges. At nine years old, Alida started to sing alone in her room, recording herself with a tape recorder. Alida is a songwriter, vocalist, and artist from Norway, now based in Los Angeles, California. Her passion for singing and creating music began at a young age. 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, Timmy Trumpet 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. Alida is an extremely versatile topliner and, with strength in lyric, melody, and concept, can pen records wholly on her own with ease, and she is only getting started. Upon relocating to Los Angeles, Alida began collaborating with various producers, songwriters, and artists, including Noonie Bao, Axident, Big Taste, The Orphanage, Cheat Codes, The Monarch, Loren Gray, Rollo, and Robopop, to name a few. The new release follows R3HAB‘s remix of Shaggy & Steven Malcom‘s “Fuego” as well as “Am I The Only One” with HRVY & Astrid S and “One Love” with Now United. The Norwegian singer co-wrote and was featured on Robin Schulz’s single “In Your Eyes’” which peaked at #1 on US Dance Radio & #5 on European Radio charts. It was then when she learned the piano and began writing her own songs. Recent releases include features and co-writing jobs on Matoma‘s “Embrace Your Life” and “Home Now” by Yves V. It also works like a drug, that lets you stay in a fantasy for a little bit longer, so press play and get lost in one more dance and get the strength to face whatever situation you’re dealing with.” – R3HAB

“This is one of the first songs we wrote when lockdown started in Los Angeles back in March. While in secondary school, she decided to focus on music and began to fine-tune her pursuit. For his newest single “One More Dance,” electronic music powerhouse R3HAB teamed up with Norwegian singer/songwriter Alida to create a powerful vocal track that will take all of your troubles away. R3HAB cultivates a danceable vibe with deep undulating basslines and breezy melodies, which serve as the perfect backdrop for Alida‘s breathy, soulful vocals. In 2016 he founded his label CYB3RPVNK, which passed one billion streams on its catalog within the first two years since its inception. R3HAB himself continues to evolve and diversify his sound by working with a variety of artists around the globe, experimenting with everything from hip-hop to pop through his collaborations. Follow us on socials “‘One More Dance‘” is about the power of music, which is able to distract you from your pain and to build your courage to overcome your everyday problems. I loved working with R3HAB, and we’re so pumped to share this dance track with the world!” – Alida

Dutch/Moroccan DJ and producer Fadi El Ghoul, better known as R3HAB, has been trailblazing his way through dance music for the better part of the last decade. A Zoom session with laggy internet between LA and Oslo led to this super on-pulse dance track. Keep an eye out for what’s next!
