This upbeat single is the quarantine pick me up that we all need right now.
‘Cloud 9’ tells the story of what could have been from a failed love story. The style of the music imagines all of the possibilities of the lovers and how they could have been on “cloud nine” instead of “in misery”. The sombre meaning of the lyrics becomes uplifted by the continuous musical and instrumental beats in the background produced by Afrojack and Chico Rose. The cheery flow shows the happiness they could have had, and the lyrics by Jeremih’s impressive voice shows the real sadness they feel. The mix of the two creates a truly remarkable sound and expression of past love.
“When I heard the track come together for the first time, I knew we had created something that felt like we’re on Cloud 9” – Afrojack
“I feel honoured to work with 2 legends, feels like we’re in Cloud 9” – Chico Rose
“I’m grateful for the opportunity to work with Afrojack and Chico Rose. Especially during this time in the world of uncertainty. I like stepping out of the box with music. This is one of those records where I was able to be versatile, have fun and still be myself” – Jeremih
This year, Afrojack entered 2020 with the release of a new single All Night featuring Ally Brooke. The single hit record numbers with over five million plays on Spotify and over three million streams on YouTube.
