Since the release of “Red Light” late last year, the only project Tiësto has worked on since was a collaboration with twoloud called “Drop It Like This” under his TST alias. Also the release of that song gave way to the news of an incoming Tiësto album that is still currently in the works. However, one of the leaders of the electronic dance music world has his next single up and ready for purchase.
This new song titled “Wasted” features Matthew Koma known for his vocal talents on songs like “Spectrum” and “Find You” by Zedd, “Years” by Alesso, “Sparks (Turn Off Your Mind)” by Fedde le Grand and Nicky Romero, “Dare You” by Hardwell, and “Cannonball (Earthquake)” by Justin Prime and Showtek. In Tiësto’s latest song, Mr. Koma sets the summertime tone singing of good times and puppy love. On the other hand, this is possibly Tijs’ most commercial and radio-friendly song to date, straying away from hard drops and sticking to more pop-like sounds. This new song reminds me of Afrojack‘s recent material like “The Spark” and “Ten Feet Tall” in the new direction each musician is taking. Although many fans grew up with both Dutchmen for their roots in trance or electro house, their new songs are a clear indication of the skill these artists possess to make more outside their genre and think outside the box.
At the end of the day, you cannot deny the catchiness that “Wasted” entices the ears with and how it will most likely climb the Top 40 charts. Love it or hate it, hash out your thoughts on the comments or ratings after checking the full preview.
