Meduza and Dermot Kennedy Collaborate on New Track ‘Paradise’

October 30, 2020

Multi-platinum, globally recognised, Italian production trio ​Meduza have joined forces with chart-topping Irish star ​Dermot Kennedy ​on new single ​‘Paradise’​, out ​today.

An uplifting and emotional record, ​‘Paradise’ pairs ​Meduza​’s unrivalled production ability to create compelling dance records whilst still drawing from the rolling energy from the roots of house music, with ​Kennedy​’s instantly recognisable, earnest vocals – a combination that’s destined to infiltrate charts across the globe. It marks ​Meduza​’s second single this year, following the release of ‘​Born To Love’ with UK artist SHELLS, a track that has already racked up ​32 million Spotify streams​. Meanwhile Kennedy’s most recent single ‘Giants’ has just been certified x4 times platinum in Ireland ​and is wrapping on the ​UK official charts top 10’s door.

Meduza ​exploded onto the scene last year with​‘Piece Of Your Heart (ft. Goodboys)’​,a globalsmash that has clocked up over a ​billion ​combined streams since its release and received a Grammy nomination. The track went diamond, multi-platinum and gold worldwide, including in the UK, selling over 1.2 million units and peaking at ​#2 ​in the UK Singles Charts ​and #1 ​in the US Dance Charts​. This was followed up by the similarly successful ‘Lose Control’​, a collaboration with UK artists ​Becky Hill and ​Goodboys​, another global, platinum-selling hit, which clocked in at ​#11 ​in the ​UK Singles chart and has amassed more than ​a billion ​streams alone.

Hailing from Dublin, Brit Award nominated ​Dermot Kennedy first broke through in 2018 with lauded single ​‘Power Over Me’​,which has achieved platinum sales in his native Ireland, gold in the UK and has since racked up over ​200 million Spotify streams​.The following year saw the release of his debut album ​’Without Fear’​, a global favourite that hit ​#1 ​in both the UK and Ireland, with the ​Guardian enthusing that he ​“wears his heart and guts on his sleeve to powerful effect,” across the LP. The artist has collectively achieved over ​1.5 billion streams across platforms globally​, and now makes his first collaboration with the dance music titans.

A collaboration between two world-conquering acts, ​‘Paradise’ is a global remedy for seeking comfort in the testing times of late.
