Armin van Buuren and Dutch singer/songwriter, Jake Reese celebrate love in their collaborative single together titled ‘Need You Now‘. We see its release on Armada Music.
It opens with a fiery, deep hook. The bassline jams alongside the melody as the sultry vocals kick in. You get effervescent piano chords and house-tinged beats, something different from Armin and we love it. When the bass echoes, imagine yourself in a high rise loft listening to this overlooking the skyline. As the piano riffs strike in the background, you can hear other instrumentals accompany it as well. Those catchy hooks really get you while you sing and dance along.
Formally known as Jaap Reesema, Reese is 35 years old and hails from the Netherlands. He has worked amongst some of electronic dance music’s greatest names. That includes David Guetta, Hardwell, Sam Feldt, EDX, Dash Berlin, and more. What’s more, is that he got his start when he won the X Factor for sensational singing. Following this, he won the Best Vocal Performance aware at the 2015 IDMAs.
“You don’t always know when the inspiration for a song may come, but it struck me full force when I heard Jake Reese’s vocals and lyrics for this single. I love how the story hits home so strongly and got lost in the vocal melody right away. It helped the track come alive very organically and I am very pleased with how it turned out. It’s another tune about love, because I know that’s precisely what you guys need!” – Armin van Buuren
