This is the brand new single from Felix Jaehn. “Like A Riddle” has been dropped at the same time as he announces his debut studio album, titled “I”. This track features Swedish duo Hearts & Colors as well as French producer Adam Trigger.
Felix Jaehn went viral all around the world with his debut single. Featuring vocalist Jasmine Thompson, his version of “Ain’t Nobody (Loves Me Better)” became an international anthem. Not only that but the year before he remixed Omi’s “Cheerleader”, boosting the song into the global hit we know today. Since then he has used his success to collaborate with a wide range of different artists from high-calibre DJs and singers such as Lost Frequencies, Steve Aoki, and Adam Lambert, to rising talents such as Alex Aiono and Hearts & Colors.
As for this exact collaboration, he came across Hearts & Colors when the duo hit it big in Scandinavia with their song “Lighthouse”. They consist of Philip Tillström and Nicolai Kjellberg. He invited them to Berlin to record this track in his studio. It is a sure-fire collaboration, one we can’t stop listening to.
Watch Felix Jaehn’s Music Video For “Like A Riddle” Featuring Hearts & Colors & Adam Trigger Here:
The music video has been directed by Toyah Dibel & Niels Münter; it stars dancers, Jemima Rose Dean and Valentin Braun. The visual takes place in an American diner, where the two dancers are not enjoying their meal together in a booth.
They dance out their feelings whilst Felix Jaehn, Hearts & Colors, and Adam Trigger, all appearing on the screens above; at times the screens totally interact with the dancers, most memorably when the dancers get into a fight and Felix Jaehn is splashed with a milkshake. The ending sees the couple walk out of the diner, all made up and in each other’s arms, just as Felix Jaehn walks in.
The song is beyond catchy and the music video really reflects the track. The dancers nail the contemporary choreography, easily translating the riddling lyrics into this amazing concept. It truly is unforgettable.
