(April 16, 2021 – Los Angeles, CA) – After eclipsing 2 billion streams and landing a 2021 BRIT Award nomination, Kosovan DJ and producer Regard unveils a brand new single entitled “You” [feat. Troye Sivan & Tate McRae] today. Get it BELOW via Epic Records.
The track infuses nostalgic eighties synths with a buoyant beat, hinging on an undeniable bounce. Regard’s production shines alongside this blockbuster duet between two of pop’s hottest stars—Troye Sivan and Tate McRae. They lock into a heavenly and hypnotic back and forth, gliding over the hummable production with undeniable chemistry. It culminates on a lovestruck confession, “When I try to fall back, I fall back to you. When I talk to my friends, I talk about you. When the Hennessy’s strong, all I see is you.”
About “You,” Regard states, “’I’m so excited that ‘You’ is finally being released! The entire song gives me wavy emotions with the angelic vocals from Tate and Troye.”
Tate adds “Collaborating with Troye and Regard was an amazing experience. It’s a totally different vibe than any of my usual songs, but still has the emotional and lyrical depth that I always try to write”.
This release follows Regard’s 2020 massive banger “Secrets” [feat. Raye], which amassed over 384 million streams and recently picked up a nod at the 2021 BRIT Awards in the category of “Best British Single” with Mastercard. “Secrets” ascended to the Top 10 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart and marked his second #1 at Dance Radio, following 2019’s global smash “Ride It.”
Regard garnered global attention with his debut single ‘Ride It’ in 2019, which became an international hit, taking the internet and TikTok by storm, and quickly followed it up with his second BRIT award nominated hit single ‘Secrets’ featuring South London singer RAYE. He has gone on to achieve over 10x Top 10 single chart placements globally, and in the UK, ‘Ride It’ has sold over 1 million records to date (2x Platinum), while ‘Secrets’ was recently certified Platinum.
