It’s crazy to think that we’re almost done with January, meaning we’re almost a full month into 2021. But for a lot of the world, it feels like we’re still stuck in 2020. After all, 2020 was a wild year and we’re probably collectively going to be processing it for a while. But you know what they say, with a new year, comes new opportunities. So if you entered 2021 with the desire for new energy and a better future, then “Smile” is the high-energy single you need to listen to today to help get your motivation going.
This energetic and catchy song is brought to us by UK-born singer, RHODES, Berlin DJ and producer duo, YouNotUs, and Dutch DJ, Deepend. RHODES is known for his passionately personal and reassuringly universal songs, inspired by his experiences within the music industry and his battles with self-doubt. YouNotUs and Deepend both have a track record of hundreds of millions of streams and numerous #1 chart hits in various countries across the globe. They bring their crafts of creating songs for listeners to groove and dance to and ultimately, create a feel-good backdrop for RHODES’ crystal clear and ultra-melodic vocals.
“Smile” is very straightforward, invigorating, and just makes you want to get up and dance. Its pleasantly optimistic sound is layered with bubbly synths, resounding basslines, and explosive percussives. The catchy verses and refrain dazzle with RHODES’ vigorous lyrics. It’s easy to lose yourself in the upbeat melodies and hopeful message, and it’s hard to get through the song without cracking a smile or a couple. It delivers just the right type of envigorating spirit to get your year started off right.
