Martin Garrix scored a surprised international hit with electro-house instrumental “Animals” — topping the charts across Europe and reaching an impressive number 51 on the Billboard Hot 100. The 17-year-old Dutchman’s anthem could now have an even wider appeal thanks to countrywoman Eva Simons, who provides a vocal.
The popular dance diva is probably best known stateside for voicing Afrojack‘s 2010 hit “Take Over Control”, so she’s no stranger to writing a killer top line. Her brooding vocal and aggressive chorus “we own the night, baby — we’re fucking animals!” suits the drop-heavy track nicely. The vocal mix is only a bootleg at present but it’s impressive enough for an official release. Listen after the jump.
