I’m on a bit of a hot streak as far as predicting hits. MAGIC!‘s “Rude” took a while to gain momentum but the reggae-pop jam is now firmly entrenched in iTunes top 40, while Nico & Vinz‘s “Am I Wrong” continues to rocket up the Billboard Hot 100. Mr. Probz‘s “Waves (Robin Schulz Remix)” is a fairly safe bet to follow those songs up the chart.
The moody dance anthem is already something of a phenomenon overseas. It reached the top spot in Germany, Sweden, Austria, Switzerland and Norway, and is heading towards a number one debut in the UK. So who is Mr. Probz and what’s so good about “Waves”? Well, he’s a Dutch hip-hop artist who just happened to create a genuinely hypnotic EDM-lullaby with a little help from German DJ Robin Schulz.
