R3HAB and acclaimed Norwegian singer Julie Bergan have teamed up for their new vocal house track “Don’t Give Up on Me Now.” The song delivers a dose of warm weather vibes with breezy, organic instrumentals that undulate beneath Bergan‘s powerful solos, showcasing her all-star voice with soulful lyrics. Romantic at its heart, “Don’t Give Up on Me Now” carries an inspiring, hopeful tone bolstered by R3HAB‘s bouncy and melodic drop. This is R3HAB‘s first collaboration with Bergan, who has experienced massive success in Norway and has earned multiple platinum records, Spellemann Award (the Norwegianequivalent of The Grammy Awards) and has amassed over 320 million streams on Spotify. After listening to “Don’t Give Up on Me Now,” we hope this will be the first of much more music together!

Over the last seven 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 tracks have reached the top of many a list, 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 all without the backing of a formal record label. In 2017, R3HABindependently 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 12 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 list in 2018, 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 200M streams in its first few months of release – leading to its North American sold-out tour of the same name.

Reflecting on the process, he explains, “This track is special to me because I’d been longing to repurpose my new style into a vocal-driven anthem that blended other elements of my sound to create a sort of hybrid track. It needed the right emotion in the track, the right chords, and perfect balance in arrangement to fit the current sound.” With its fusion of cutting-edge electronic music and infectious vocals, ‘Anybody Out There’ promises an unparalleled audio experience that pushes the boundaries of live performance. Hardwell’s creative vision, combined with the talents of AZTECK and Alex Hepburn, guarantees an unforgettable musical journey for listeners. ‘Anybody Out There’ signifies Hardwell’s evolution as an artist, showcasing his willingness to experiment and explore new sonic territories while staying true to his core essence.
