What does dance hitmaker Martin Garrix do after signing on as a BBC Radio 1 resident DJ and reaching 10 million Facebook fans? He links up with Usher for a soulful and pop-friendly collaboration titled Don’t Look Down.
The Spinnin’ Records-released single is less earworming as a track than Garrix’ ubiquitous crossover smash Animals, but it certainly has a Top 40-ready hook courtesy of the Grammy-winning R&B legend. The now-trademark xylophone is joined with a strong lead guitar line, kick drums, drum machines and Usher’s soaring vocals for a pop/dance production that uniquely meets big room and festival expectations.
