Today marks the release of French DJ/producer DJ Snake’s new single – Maradona Riddim with Niniola.
With its shimmering beats and delicate guitar tones, “Maradona Riddim” features the captivating vocals of Niniola—a Lagos-born singer hailed as the “Nigerian Queen of Afro-House” and nominated in the Best New International Act category at the 2018 BET Awards.
The track arrives as the latest in a series of culture-spanning singles from DJ Snake, whose India-inspired early-2018 hit “Magenta Riddim” shot to #1 on the U.S. Dance charts.
In India ‘Magenta Riddim’ – the video of which was shot in Hyderabad earlier this year – went on to become one of the most streamed International singles of 2018 here. The Tollywood-inspired music video and the song became a rage lending itself to numerous memes and UGC clips across the country. The song spent a phenomenal 12 Weeks at #1 on the Shazam India Top 100 charts while also topping charts across streaming services, radio and television here.
DJ Snake’s recent releases also include “Let’s Get Ill,” a collaboration with fellow Parisian Mercer. Featuring vocals from Grammy Award-winner Jermaine Dupri, “Let’s Get Ill” premiered in June and is already a massive festival staple.
In France, DJ Snake continues his jam-packed summer tour schedule with a set at Electrobeach in Le Barcares. Next month, he’ll headline the Billboard Hot 100 Festival and perform at Outside Lands in San Francisco.
