Dutch singer-songwriter Mr Probz’s re-worked single is now the talk of the town.
If you have never heard of Mr Probz, well it’s about time you listened to some of his tracks. Mr Probz, aka Dennis Princewell Stehr, is a Dutch hip-hop artiste, singer and songwriter who has just recently made a name for himself in the international music scene.
Last week, he released a re-worked dance version of his single – Waves – in Britain and it went straight to the top of the British singles chart. The song originally debuted last year and features the artiste singing a heartfelt song about losing somebody, “slowly drifting, wave after wave...”.
German DJ and producer Robin Schulz then got his hands on it and made a remixed version, transforming Waves into something less mellow and more “appropriate” for summer music season.
The music video for the remixed radio edit, which features a man stranded on an island and hallucinating, has more than six million views. The clip for the original song sees Mr Probz singing in a studio surrounded by some musicians – it now has more than 13 million hits.
Also on the British charts now are Hideaway by Canadian singer-songwriter Kiesza and Nobody To Love by Sigma.
