Brazilian music superstar and philanthropist ALOK, popularly known for chart-topping collaborations with James Arthur, John Legend, Tove Lo, Ellie Goulding and Ava Max, has teamed up with GRAMMY Award-winning & RIAA Diamond-certified duo The Chainsmokers and 20-year-old English singer & songwriter Mae Stephens, for their new single, “Jungle.”
Featuring an addictive piano riff that will definitely be stuck in every listener’s head and an all-star trio of artists who boast over 70 million monthly Spotify listeners combined, “Jungle” is set to be a smash single and is available now on all DSPs and streaming services HERE, with a live action sci-fi themed official music video featuring all three artists.
“Jungle” is an infectious blend of all artists’ styles from Stephens’ mesmerizing vocals and ALOK’s global house sensibilities to The Chainsmokers’ infectious pop production. This follows ALOK’s hit single, “Car Keys,” with global pop sensation Ava Max and it’s official remix by dance music legend, Tiesto, while The Chainsmokers, known for colossal chart-toppers like “Closer” and “Something Just Like This” with Coldplay, which have billions of streams each, are enjoying the success of their 2022 album So Far So Good. Mae Stephens is skyrocketing, propelled by TikTok’s Global #1 Song of the Summer, “If We Ever Broke Up,” which has accumulated over 200 million streams.
The official music video for “Jungle” explores a new vision of the human experience through the eyes of outsiders. The clip follows three shapeshifting androids who crashland on earth through a lake and are chased by boats and guards. Fighting for survival with the universal instinct shared with animals in the jungle, they find safety by blending in with a crowd at a music festival and transforming into others around them. Through their various paths, they each experience different human emotions and pleasures. Featuring performances by ALOK, The Chainsmokers, and Mae Stephens and filmed onsite at IleSoniq Music Festival in Montreal, the live action music video delivers a captivating cinematic experience to accompany the all-star musical collaboration.
“Jungle has been in the works with The Chainsmokers for over a year now and I’m glad we finally found the right mixture. The addition of Mae was a perfect fit and the response we got premiering it at Tomorrowland in Belgium told us we were on to something special. I can’t wait for everyone to hear the final product and to perform it all over the world.” – ALOK
Coming off a massive summer tour, his latest chart topping release “Car Keys” with global pop sensation Ava Max, its official remix by dance music legend Tiësto, and his recent birthday celebration performance labeled “The Show of the Century” at the iconic Copacabana Palace Hotel in Rio de Janeiro for a record-breaking crowd, ALOK continues pushing boundaries in the dance music community, paving the way for even more mind-blowing performances and opportunities in the future. The #1 most-listened-to Brazilian artist in the world on Spotify and #1 DJ in Latin America recently traveled to New York to host his second annual Future Is Ancestral climate change event at the United Nations headquarters with multiple panels, speakers, and a performance of his upcoming album featuring indigenous Amazonian artists on the UN rooftop. In May 2023 Alok was honored with a prestigious award at the Better World Fund Gala during the Cannes Film Festival for his charity work with his Alok Institute in conjunction with the Amazônia Fund Alliance program for the Brazilian Federation of UNESCO.
“We couldn’t be more excited to be collaborating with Alok and Mae respectively. We have been friends and following Alok’s work for years and always admired his shows and have been trying to find the right record for over 4 years. We were both picky because we wanted to make a record we could both perform at the biggest shows but also something that lent itself to a fan outside of the festivals. Mae is also just a brilliant up and coming artist and she absolutely nailed the vocal. Hopefully like Alok we will have 1,000,000 ppl at our future shows thanks to this collaboration.” – The Chainsmokers
The Chainsmokers have consistently elevated popular music by ceaselessly challenging it. The GRAMMY® Award-winning RIAA Diamond-certified duo—Drew Taggart and Alex Pall—have broken boundaries between pop, indie, electronic, alternative, and rock. Thus far, they have scored three Diamond singles, namely the Billboard Hot 100 #1 “Closer” [feat. Halsey], “Something Just Like This” [with Coldplay], and “Don’t Let Me Down” [feat. Daya]. The latter garnered a GRAMMY® Award for “Best Dance Recording.” Their 2017 full-length debut, Memories…Do Not Open, notably bowed at #1 on the Billboard 200 and paved the way for the gold-certified Sick Boy  and gold-certified World War Joy . Both albums were followed by 40+ city sold out arena tours. At the same time, Drew and Alex give back at every turn. In the midst of the Global Pandemic, Drew and Alex funded the production and delivery of tens of thousands of PPE N95 masks to hospitals in New York and Las Vegas. The charity Youth Emerging Stronger recognized The Chainsmokers with the “Key of Hope Award” for their commitment to philanthropy and underprivileged children.
“I never imagined I would be working with the Chainsmokers and ALOK this time last year. As a starting artist I never imagined anything like this would happen. But they are so kind and it has been so awesome to be a part of this song and the video! The guys are amazing and performing with them was one of the best moments of my life.” – Mae Stephens
