Produced alongside MK – an artist Joel Corry credits as one of his biggest inspirations – ‘Drinkin’’ with Rita Ora follows the UK Top 10 success of ‘0800 HEAVEN’ alongside Nathan Dawe & Ella Henderson, as well as Joel’s recent dancefloor excursions with Billen Ted (‘Do U Want Me Baby?’ ft. Elphi), Caity Baser (‘Dance Around It’) and Icona Pop & Rain Radio (‘Desire’). Sampling Chance The Rapper’s ‘All Night’, ‘Drinkin’’ taps the classic Joel Corry sound – warm, bubbling chords, bright, infectious vocals and solid peak-time grooves – to land as a single that feels every bit a dance anthem in-waiting. Listen here.
As soon as I first flipped the ‘All Night’ sample, it instantly felt like a smash and collaborating with MK is a dream for me. (…) The icing on the cake was the incredible Rita Ora laying down the vocals. We’ve been friends for a while and we were waiting for the right track to collaborate on.— Joel Corry
