FITZ might be the lead singer of the Los Angeles rock band Fitz and The Tantrums but he’s no stranger to China. His single ‘Handclap’ has been played more than one billion times in China alone, and the accompanying choreography video has been viewed more than 50 million times in South Korea and ranked 15 and third on charts in South Korea and Japan respectively.
So it comes as little surprise that he' tapped LIZZY, a twice ranked #1 Chinese DJ by DJane Mag, for a remix of his first solo single. Growing up in the United States, LIZZY has absorbed the essence of Eastern and Western cultures and this gives her appear to international acts like FITZ — the connection is strong between them.
FITZ' ‘Head Up High’ recently reached #17 on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart and marks the solo debut for FITZ. LIZZY's uplifting remix turns the tune into a trancey floor filler and is a win-win collaboration for both artists as the strength of cross bolder collaborations continues to flourish. We expect this one to make a big noise in China...
