“Karol G is such a talented superstar and the perfect addition to this song – When I first heard her smooth vocals on “Don’t Be Shy” I was instantly hooked. I am thrilled to share this collab with both of our fans around the entire world” said Tiësto.
“Working with Tiesto has been one of the most beautiful surprises that has happened to me this year. I feel like I manifested it,” said Karol G. “My playlist includes various songs of his and I listen to them often. When I was approached with the idea to work together and on top of that to sing a song in English my excitement was on another level. First, for the opportunity to be able to work with Tiesto and second because it would be my first time singing a song completely in English. I’ve always wanted to be known for my music in Spanish, but I also feel like right now it’s the perfect time to experiment, expanding and conquering a different audience.”
The song is the second from Tiësto’s partnership with Atlantic Records. It follows the September 2020 release of Tiësto’s multi-platinum Global hit,“The Business”, which has garnered over 1 Billion streams to date. The song debuted in the top 10 in 10 countries upon release, reaching #1 on the US Dance Charts. The official music video for “The Business” has clocked over 132 Million views on Youtube alone, thus far.
