SONG OF THE DAY: Avicii vs Nicky Romero – “I Could Be The One”
This is pretty much a no brainer. Combining two of the biggest (and youngest) superstar producers – stadium house king Avicii and rising dutchman Nicky Romero – it almost seems like David Guetta masterminded this massive collaboration. Following the pattern of Avicii’s biggest hits, “I Could Be The One” started as an instrumental known as both “NickTim” (a combination of their first names) or “Fuck School,” which has been played for almost a year. The electro-tinged stadium house track is nearly by the numbers, which of course is not an insult, just a mention that the formula when executed perfectly yields great results. The uplifting lyrics will quickly get stuck in your head with the catchy, pretty delivery by Noonie Bao (who we just covered last week on the strong Don Diablo track “M1 Stinger.”) The big room club track becomes a pop-ready song that will dominate clubs and should hit radio for the new year. Don’t be surprised if this becomes this year’s “Levels” at WMC.
