EDM producer and DJ Nicky Romero hooked up with Hungary’s duo Stadiumx and Grammy-winner Sam Martin to release “Love You Forever.”
Romero exploded onto the music scene with “Toulouse” and “I Could Be the One,” with Avicii. The latter song has collected more than 185 million streams on Spotify. He followed by co-producing mega-hits such as Rihanna’s “Right Now,” and Britney Spears’ “It Should Be Easy.”
In 2012, Romero founded Protocol Recordings, which has become the go-to label in electronic music, and includes artists such as Raiden, Maximals, Florian Picasso, Sunstars, Corey James, and many others. Protocol Radio impacts 40 million listeners every week, and highlights ADE and Miami Music Week.
If that’s not enough, Romero is now a co-owner of ReKTGlobal, the parent company of Rogue, a professional esports corporation. ReKT’s other partners include Steve Aoki, Imagine Dragons, music producer Tainy, and Lex Borrero.
Stadiumx collaborated with Romero on “Rise,” and remixed Clean Bandit, Robin Schulz, and Gryffin, while Sam Martin first appeared on 2012’s “Daylight” with Maroon 5, and has since worked with David Guetta, Armin van Buuren, and Steve Angello. Martin recently dropped his debut album, Alpha Omega, on Warner Music/Atlantic Records.
“Love You Forever” opens on gently emerging synths topped by Martin’s dulcet voice flowing into a multi-layered dance melody flavored with pop sprinkles. A thumping kick drum lays down the rhythmic pulse as glittering colors effervesce overhead.
Martin’s lush voice, rich and smooth, infuses the tune with mounting timbres full of clean, radiant textures. The combination of Martin’s delicious tones and the vibrant surfaces of the harmonics imbue the tune with tight galvanizing energy, as well as magnetic impetus.
“But I, I would love you forever / If you fall, then we both fall together / They’ll need an army to take me from you / And all of their tanks and their bombs wouldn’t do / Cause I, I will love you forever (ohh) / Forever / Forever.”
“Love You Forever” simmers with quixotic intensity, delivering scrumptious vocals along with an intoxicating flow of energizing dance momentum.
