Following on from a huge 2018, Australia’s Bombs Away have proven they know how to create a hit and that is exactly what they’ve done with flawless new single ‘You Gotta Be’, featuring the Perth songstress Reigan.
This time they’ve re-imagined Des’ree’s 90’s pop hit ‘You Gotta Be’ which perfectly rationalized the importance of self-confidence, adding their Bombs Away spice and Reigan’s outstanding vocals.
Bombs Away elaborate on how the track came together “It was such a blessing to work with absolute natural talent like Reigan, she nailed every take, which let us focus on getting the production into a space that really let the song shine, we thought we were onto something in the first few mins of the recording session, and by the end we were certain!”
Over the years, the internationally recognised Gold Coast duo has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the business, including Mr. Worldwide himself – Pitbull, and the likes of Krafty Kuts, The Potbelleez and Luciana. For the new single, they have teamed up with Reigan who became well-known in Australia after her stunning performance on the 2014 season of X-Factor, making it through to final stages of the competition. However, not being her first stint in the industry, she was previously signed by Jay Z to Def Jam records as one half of girl group Scarlett Belle, which had her writing alongside none other than industry icon, Snoop Dogg.
Bombs Away have had a stellar career to date since their break-out hit and certified Gold record ‘Big Booty Bitches’, which they quickly followed up with platinum records ‘Party Bass’ and ‘Super Soaker’. The ARIA nominated duo show no sign of slowing down, with successive #1 singles in the ARIA charts, tracks in Billboard’s Top 40 and top 10’s in multiple countries, additionally, they have been voted #1 Artist in Australia and #32 Worldwide on THEDJLIST, #1 in state and #4 Nationally for the inthemix awards. Following years of success, Bombs Away worked hard to deliver their debut album ‘Fragments’ in 2018 – an album that was a labour of love for the duo. Including their hit singles ‘Like You feat. Elle Vee’ and ‘Let You Down feat. Sunset City’, the album charted across Australia, UK, Switzerland, Denmark, and the US, whilst receiving endorsements from leading music press outlets including DJ Mag.
‘You Gotta Be’ is out now on Central Station Records.
