Once again fans of world-renowned DJ and producer Armin van Buuren and Dutch songstress Davina Michelle can get excited. The pair, who scored a huge hit in the Netherlands alongside distinguished Dutch singer Marco Borsato with their 2019 single “Hoe Het Danst”. It is to say that recently they both hit the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Zandvoort (Netherlands) with an unannounced performance and officially released their second collab “Hold On”. With Davina invited to perform the Dutch national Anthem and Armin hired for a “regular” DJ job, fans surely didn’t see this one coming.
“About two-and-a-half years ago, when we released ‘Hoe Het Danst’ together with Marco Borsato, I couldn’t help but shout from the rooftops how much I loved Davina’s vocal performance. So naturally, it was a no-brainer to get together with her for a second time to write this song. I am beyond proud of the result; hearing your own lyrics has always been special tome, let alone when they’re sung to perfection.” – Armin van Buuren
“I’m really proud of our new single. I’m still buzzing from the fact that I got to hit the studio with someone so musically gifted as Armin to create a powerful song that reflects who we are as musicians. I’m al so very honored he asked me to accompany him at his biggest – ever European solo show in Romania.” – Davina Michelle
Soon to welcome a complementary club version, “Hold On” tells a story of perseverance and inner strength. With Armin van Buuren’s brilliant, uplifting production and Davina Michelle’s gold-rimmed vocals, “Hold On” stands out as an incredibly catchy pop-dance crossover that keeps listeners hooked from start to finish. It comes as no surprise that this amazing track is released on Armada Music.
