Jillionaire, Fuse ODG & Fatman Scoop
The hope of a bright future is steeped in "Sunrise," a brand new track by Jillionaire, Fuse ODG & Fatman Scoop. Zane Lowe of Apple Music's Beats 1 Radio premiered "Sunrise" today on his worldwide broadcast. The lyric video is now playing on Major Lazer's YouTube channel. This feel-good anthem looks at the first sign of daylight as a turning point from the blissful moment of love on the dancefloor to an even brighter future ahead.
On his latest record, Jillionaire reunites with Fuse ODG—the Ghanaian MC who brought his Afro Pop flare to "Light It Up," the hit single from Major Lazer's third album, Peace Is The Mission. For good measure, the addition of crowd-motivating ad-libs by Fatman Scoop emphasizes the song's wide-reaching appeal, from mainstream radio to festival main stages. "I was in London, and met with Fatman Scoop at his studio. He mentioned he wanted to work with Fuse. I hit Fuse, and he came through," recounts Jillionaire about the recording session. "All vocals were tracked that night. We were all in one place and that rarely happens," adds Jillionaire. The pairing of Fatman Scoop's commanding vocals with Fuse ODG's rousing melodies is also a subtle homage to "Lose Control," Scoop's Grammy Award-winning single.
The release of "Sunrise" in 2017 marks another benchmark for Jillionaire and Feel Up Records. The label he founded in Brooklyn, NY celebrates its third anniversary this March. "Sunrise" is Jillionaire's follow up release to last year's "Television," which featured the "The Viking of Soca" Bunji Garlin, and Queens-based producer Richie Beretta.
