Brazilian superstar Alok is not only kicking off 2024 as one of the biggest DJs in the world, but he’s also doing it with an electrifying track, “Deep In Your Love,” with none other than Bebe Rexha. Let’s just say that Alok and Rexha’s fans are starting this year right.
“Holding back / cause we’re holding tension when we touch / losing track / cause we blur these lines we already crossed,” Rexha sings, her riveting vocals giving a soothing vibe to the dynamic beat. It may not be 2011 for us to “find love in a hopeless place,” but this song has all the makings of a runaway hit, and anyone can agree it’s high time EDM started having its very own playing field. The catchy mantra “let me deep in your love” and the thumping production go hand in hand to make this a memorable track.
It also comes laden with high-powered synths and hard-hitting drums, which come paired with an elating beat drop that happens just as Rexha sings, “Wrap your heart around me.” Apart from its vibrant and dance-worthy production, the lyrics tell us about a love that’s so enticing all you want to do is explore more of it. “Free your mind / When I taste your thoughts it’s a remedy / Ocean eyes,” she sings in the second verse, before trailing into the slightly changed second pre-chorus.
2023 was a fine one for Alok, who ended it as the number one most-listened-to Brazilian artist in the world on Spotify. Apart from speaking on climate change and his philanthropic works, he was also honored with a prestigious award at the Better World Fund Gala during the Cannes Film Festival for his charity work with his Alok Institute in conjunction with the Amazônia Fund Alliance program for the Brazilian Federation of UNESCO.
Speaking on her collaboration with Alok, Rexha said: “Working with ALOK on this song was so much fun and I’m so excited for everyone to finally hear it!”
Alok has worked with a wide range of artists, including Zara Larsson, Jason Derulo, Ava Max, and many others. He also employed his creative powers on the remix of Dua Lipa’s smash single “Physical.”
As for Alok, a collab with Rexha has been a long time coming, “Since meeting Bebe at a show in Romania, it’s been a pleasure working with her on ‘Deep In Your Love’ both online and while she was in Brazil. I can’t wait for everyone to hear this danceable, energetic new single and to play it live on dancefloors around the world as we bring in the Spring and Summer seasons!”
