Brazilian artist Alok has collaborated with French DJ and producer Hugel and British singer-songwriter Amber Van Day on new single ‘I Don’t Wanna Talk’, out now via Alok’s CONTROVERSIA imprint. Combining upbeat drums with impassioned pop vocals and Alok’s signature Brazilian bass drops, ‘I Don’t Wanna Talk’ possesses all of the elements necessary to become an adored crossover track.
“‘I Don’t Wanna Talk’ is the first song that Amber and I wrote on the day we met for the first time two years ago. Her voice on this track has a magical oriental melody that’s hypnotizing. It’s really sexy,” Hugel explains. “In March 2019, Alok contacted us while I was at Miami Music Week and wanted to work on the beat. He produced a cool version of the song and we decided to collaborate. Here we are: 3 artists, 3 nations – Brazil, France, and England.”
Moving up two spots to #11 on this year’s DJ Mag Top 100 list, Alok officially holds the highest position ever achieved by a Brazilian artist. ‘I Don’t Wanna Talk’ follows a string of releases for the powerhouse DJ, including an official remix of the Pink Floyd classic ‘The Wall’ and his rework of ‘Tell Me Why’, the Supermode track of the same name that samples Bronski Beat’s iconic 80’s hit. Most recently, he partnered with his twin brother Bhaskar on the powerful electronic-pop track ‘Killed By The City’, marking their first collaboration in three years following their 2016 hit ‘Fuego’ (100+ million Spotify streams).
