R3HAB serves up a dose of post-holiday cheer with his new release “Candyman,” an upbeat dance anthem that sets the tone for a new year.
The single delivers bouncy basslines and energetic melodies over ethereal, singsong vocals with lyrics that will take you away from the less-than-ideal reality of 2020 and into a fantasy land of vanilla skies. R3HAB has continued to release fresh music even in the face of a challenging global landscape, and “Candyman” proves that he has every intention of heading into 2021 with a positive outlook and even better vibes. Another announcement from the R3HAB camp is the rebranding of his radio show as “CYB3RPVNK Radio”, formerly known as “I Need R3HAB”, which debuted this month and will feature a roster of high profile takeovers and guest mixes by other widely-known artists.
Stay tuned for more news on CYB3RPVNK Radio and read on below for R3HAB’s thoughts on the new release:
“I’m happy to release ‘Candyman’ with Marnik as my first single of 2021. I’ve been looking forward to collaborating with Marnik since they remixed “All Around The World”, and I love what we’ve made here. ‘Candyman’ is a fun and lighthearted record that we hope will set the right tone for 2021″ – R3HAB
“‘Candyman’ is a special song for us because it’s directly connected to our purest emotions and dreams, where everything looks innocent and magical. It wants to take you higher, right to the fairyland full of candies and colours, where everything blossoms through sweetness and delight.” – Marnik
Dutch/Moroccan DJ and producer Fadil El Ghoul, better known as R3HAB, has been trailblazing his way through dance music for the better part of the last decade. From his breakthrough hit remix of Afrojack, Pitbull and Ne-Yo’s “Give Me Everything” to his dance anthems, such as “All Around The World (La La La)” and “Lullaby,” which have collectively amassed over 600M streams, to his collaborations with the likes of ZAYN, Andy Grammer, Sofia Carson, Timmy Trumpet and more, R3HAB has proven to be one of the most talented and forward-thinking artists in the game. He partnered with Spotify and GATTÜSO to create the first-ever official “mint” single release. In 2016 he founded his label CYB3RPVNK, which passed one billion streams on its catalogue within the first two years since its inception. R3HAB himself continues to evolve and diversify his sound by working with a variety of artists around the globe, experimenting with everything from hip-hop to pop through his collaborations. With his combination of innate artistry and innovative attitude, in 2021 R3HAB is continuing his journey. Keep an eye out for what’s next!
