world famous producer KSHMR brings one of his most remarkable records to date, unleashing the vibrant new single “Lion Heart.” The record sees the American sensation team up with the Indian rapper DIVINE and Argentinian hip-hop phenomenon BED Killahwhile presenting Jeremy Oceans & CARRA in a brilliant role. The result is a refreshing overall sound that taps into pop, hip-hop, trap and Latin vibes. KSHMR brings it all together in one mesmerizing track, now available on Dharma Worldwide.
“Lion Heart” is an exciting new step in KSHMR’s creative output, exploring their refined production skills with a unique set of collaborative sounds. It’s a record that spanned two years, incorporating his recurring lion motif (referring to his 2016 debut album, The Lion Across The Field) and fulfilling his long-held wish to work with these particular artists.
Starting from a moderate mid-tempo beat, the vibe intensifies with the rhythmic piano chords and driving vocals of Jeremy Oceans, which ultimately bridge the gap between West Coast hip-hop, songwriting passion and global influences of KSHMR.
The record continues to evolve, as it bursts into a lively pop chorus, giving KARRA the chance to shine, followed by a series of sharp Latin-style raps from LIT Killah. When DIVINE arrives to provide a solid dose of Indian-flavored vocals, it’s clear that this track brings the best of different worlds – all without losing any of its musical punch.
KSHMR performs here at their best, blending their trademark sound and electronic magic with powerful hooks and impressive vocals. Destined to make that genre-bending record, his “Lion Heart” can be seen as a landmark release, something unique and unforgettable, ready to hit the stage for an eagerly awaiting crowd.
“’Lion Heart’ is such a special collaboration for me. You have India, Argentina, Holland and the United States on the same track and each artist brings something magical to the table. For the production, I was inspired by old school hip hop – my first passion – and the emerging hip hop scene currently in India, which has excited me for a long time now. – KSHMR
