Hot on the heels of his recent single ‘All Comes Back To You’ R3HAB once again breaks genre barriers with his newest collaboration and perhaps the biggest one to date – ‘Flames’, recorded with a founding member of One Direction – ZAYN, and featuring UK based Jungleboi. Produced with R3HAB’s golden touch, the two powerhouses give piano-led ‘Flames’ the best of both worlds – soothing electronic beats and basslines and ZAYN’s infamously sensual vocals, letting the emotive performance captivate every listener. ‘Flames’ expertly demonstrates R3HAB’s ability to continuously evolve his sound while staying true to the artist’s dynamic and unique style that has earned him a devout following of millions of listeners around the globe. R3HAB and Jungleboi met in London in 2017 and worked on ‘Flames’ together ever since. Two years later, in the summer of 2019, ZAYN heard a demo version of the track and immediately decided to join in.
“I was working on the ‘Flames’ song for quite some time together with Jungleboi when we got the call that ZAYN was interested in to give it a shot. Of course, I said yes right away, and the result is absolutely epic. I couldn’t be more proud of the result and look forward to sharing this amazing tune with the world. ” – R3HAB
Over the last eight years, the Dutch/Moroccan artist Fadil El Ghoul – better known as R3HAB – has established himself as a leader at the forefront of modern electronic music. His talent has been called the “future of the craft” by the likes of Forbes and Billboard, and he’s circuited the globe’s best clubs and festivals, all without the backing of a formal record label. In 2017, R3HAB independently released his debut album ‘Trouble’ through his imprint CYB3RPVNK, which amassed over a half-billion streams globally and officially placed R3HAB among electronic music’s heavy hitters. He made number 14 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 list in 2019, topping the charts with tracks like ‘Lullaby’ and ‘Hold On Tight’, while his sophomore album ‘The Wave’, revealing more complex, emotional and experimental layers of himself, has amassed over 250 million streams on Spotify alone. In 2019 R3HAB’s ‘All Around The World’ with A Touch of Class quickly became his biggest ever record already topping 200M streams across platforms and achieving gold & platinum status in 8 countries.
