As a follow up to the announcement of Aoki’s upcoming release and sixth studio album, ‘Neon Future IV’, the Dim Mak bossman recently, and excitedly, introduced news of a collaboration with Chinese pop star Lay Zhang and will.i.am. ‘Love You More’ is a straight up pop hit, with a touch of class by two-time Grammy winning producer Steve Aoki.
As quoted by the Black Eyed Peas former-front man, “working with Aoki is always magical, and Lay is an amazing artist. This collaboration is cultural exchange at its finest, when East meets West”. Undoubtedly, this is a diverse collaboration, but surely a strategic one that keeps an ever-growing potential fan base in China on their toes.
No stranger to partnering with trending Asian talent, Aoki has previously teamed up with K-Pop Kings BTS and the likes of MONSTA X. It’s no surprise that this record was conceived with an artist who has a staggering fan base of 60 million worldwide, in addition to holding the top spot as best selling artist on Tencent Music Entertainment platform (which boasts a 900 million user base).
‘Love You More’ by Steve Aoki, Lay Zhang and will.i.am is out now on Ultra Music. Listen to the package and buy it here.
