Afrojack aims for airwaves with release of ‘The Spark,’ lead single from debut album
The newest record from Afrojack will serve as the lead single off his debut album, replacing what many believed would be the Chris Brown collaboration, “As Your Friend.” Entitled “The Spark,” the latest follows suit of Avicii’s “Wake Me Up,” putting climactic drops behind and emphasizing appealing songmanship. That singing coming from Spree Wilson, the new kid on the block whose voice is reminiscent of a mix between rapper B.O.B. and Black Eyed Peas frontman will.I.am.
On the production end of things, Nick’s new single comes from the lineage of “Take Over Control” and “Can’t Stop Me,” but even cuts some bass and stage-fitting dynamics so that “The Spark” is less appropriate for his live shows and more so for global airwaves. The music video, released today simultaneously with the track on iTunes, comes as its own spark of lavish living where Afrojack himself appears in a sports car (which has has recently admitted to exceeding speeds of 200mph in).
