Title: All You Need Is Love
Label: Virgin Records/Universal Music
Nicky Romero is back on Virgin Records/Universal Music with his uplifting dance-pop crossover single “All You Need Is Love,” for which he teamed up with dance-pop mainstay Jonas Blue and talented singer and producer Nico Santos. With three powerhouses behind it, one would expect this collaboration to be nothing short of magical, and it certainly delivers. Opening with soul-rendering vocals overtop organic melodies, the track swells to a euphoric, progressive crescendo with the chorus. Santos‘s performance brings the hopeful lyrics to life perfectly, while Romero and Blue‘s respective production skills toe the line between electronic and pop genres. Nicky Romero premiered the track earlier this year at Ultra Music Festival‘s Main Stage when he brought Jonas out on stage, and its release has been highly anticipated ever since. “All You Need Is Love” follows Nicky‘s releases “I Hope That It Hurts” with Norma Jean Martine, “Why Do I Call,” and “Nights With You” on Virgin Records/Universal Music.
“I really loved working with Jonas and Nico on this amazing record. They are both super-talented artists and are crushing it on each given occasion. Jonas has released earlier some of my favorite hit songs and is a master at creating emotional and heartfelt tracks. I got to know Nico just recently and immediately felt that his amazing voice would be the best fit for this song. When he recorded his vocals, it was an instant match as he perfectly conveyed the emotions that we wanted to send to the world. It was great to premiere ‘All You Need Is Love‘ at Ultra Music Festival in Miami with Jonas back in March, and I’m happy we can finally share it with our fans and listeners around the globe” – Nicky Romero
“Nicky has always been someone I looked up to since I started producing music, so it’s an honor to collaborate with him! and Nico‘s talent has been on my radar for a while too, so this song felt like the perfect moment for the 3 of us to collaborate and I’m excited to see what the world think of this one.” – Jonas Blue
“It’s an honor to be able to collaborate on this great track with two of my favorite producers – Nicky Romero and Jonas Blue. The song is a reminder for us all: Even when you’re facing great challenges and experiencing dark times, you should believe that brighter times are ahead, and you need to trust the power and the love within you to help you to get there.” – Nico Santos
After taking the world by storm with early hits such as “Legacy” with Krewella, “Like Home” with NERVO and the #1 single “I Could Be The One” with Avicii, Nicky Romero quickly proved that his talent is ever-evolving and here to stay. After launching his Protocol Recordings imprint in 2012, the renowned performer, producer, and label head continued his personal successes with a string of high-profile releases, ranging from collaborations with Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, W&W, Timmy Trumpet and Steve Aoki to remixes for the likes of Bebe Rexha, Robin Schulz, Kygo, Rita Ora, Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, Jess Glynne and more. While showcasing his label’s roster via his weekly Protocol Radio show, Nicky Romero continues to innovate and evolve, and with his annual “Nicky Romero & Friends” ADE showcase and the launch of Monocule alter-ego, he keeps proving his ability to turn into gold everything he touches and continues to push boundaries with each show concept and new release, forever instilling himself as a dance music icon.
Jonas Blue‘s career to date has been astounding, and its effect has been felt the world over, with singles like “Fast Car,” “Perfect Strangers,” “Rise,” “Mama,” and “Polaroid” collectively having been certified platinum over 130 times around the globe. Amassing an army of recognizable hit singles, with over 18 billion global streams, over 80 million worldwide singles sales, 5 billion video views, BRIT certified Breakthrough Album, 5 BRIT Award nominations, and multiple brand deals, Jonas has cemented his name as a main stage DJ and pop powerhouse. Jonas‘ hard work and inspiring music continued to receive global success with singles featuring a combo of hot artists, including HRVY, Leon, Ava Max, Rita Ora, R3HAB, Tiësto, and more. He is a man on a mission, whose sights are set for the top with his first release of 2023 “Weekends,” with top German DJ/Producer Felix Jaehn, as well as “Crying on The Dancefloor” as a collaborative project Endless Summer with Sam Feldt and his latest summer smash “Finally” with RANI, we will see collaborations and showstopping DJ sets aplenty.
Singer, songwriter, and producer: Nico Santos is an absolutely exceptional talent. A versatility that covers genres from pop to hip-hop to R&B and deep house to film music. The multiple gold and platinum awards – not only in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland but also Australia, Mexico, and Spain – and various radio airplay #1s speak for themselves. Over 1 billion global streams later and three years after his self-titled second album, Nico Santos is back, or rather, he was never gone. Unlike generations of singers before him, Nico Santos never really thought in terms of albums; he simply recorded one song after another. In doing so, Nico discovered and utilized a freedom that can only come from following a flow, a current. Nico‘s new album “RIDE” is scheduled for a release on May 26, 2023.
