World-renowned Dutch duo Showtek are dropping heat after heat these past couple of months. For their newest piece of soul food they teamed with the beautiful and talented Theresa Rex. Most people might know her from her work on Martin Jensen’s mega-hit “Solo Dance.” Now she puts her stunningly beautiful voice on “What Is Love”.
‘What is love. A philosopher’s favorite question. For musicians like us it’s a great way to express how we feel. The 90’s house music style is a big part of our lives and inspiration personally, and a perfect way to lay that sentiment down into a track. We wrote this one with Jessie Reyez and love how Theresa Rex performed her vocals on this. Both great artists we loved working with.” – Showtek
One has to ask himself: “What is love without someone to love ya?” Theresa Rex’s lyrics provide the focal point of this collaboration. The explorative themes here are that of unrequited love and relationship struggles. The resonating vocals were created by Canadian singer/songwriter Jessie Reyez. However, the production of “What is Love” sharply juxtaposes the somber topic. After opening with a light synth line, the chorus blossoms into an exuberant dance affair complete with a brightly syncopated bass rhythm and an immediately catchy top melody. Capped off by Rex’s soaring vocals, “What Is Love” is an ear worm that combines broad pop appeal with modern club sensibilities, grounded in classic dance production while harnessing a forward-thinking sound.
Showtek’s production offers an uplifting dance instrumental only to be enhanced by Rex’s fantastic lyrics. “What Is Love” is available on all streaming platforms now via Universal Music.
