Tiësto and Charli XCX have teamed up for a new song called ‘Hot In It’. It’s the latest preview of Tiësto’s upcoming album, following the previously shared tracks ‘The Business’, ‘Don’t Be Shy’, and ‘The Motto’. Give it a listen below.
“I knew from the second I heard Charli’s cut on the song that it was going to be a smash, and it’s been amazing to see how everyone has been reacting to the message of the song,” Tiësto commented in a press release. “The heat on this one is incredible, so excited it’s finally out in the world!”
In an interview with Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe, Charli XCX said of the track:
I feel like my preferred style of singing is something that’s like a little more rhythmical that feels like it could be a part of the track anyway. So when Tiesto sent me this original idea where like the hot in it element was in there, it felt like very me. And so I was in Houston on tour and I went to a studio there and I wrote my parts and it was the first time that I sang it out loud and it just all fit together so well. And when I was going back to the venue, I just made the Uber driver drive around Houston and just play it on repeat. The Uber driver was into it. He was like, “Hey, I think this is going to be big.” And I was like, “Thanks.”
Tiësto previously remixed Charli XCX’s 2015 single ‘Break the Rules’ as well as her hit collaboration with Icona Pop, ‘I Love It’. Charli’s latest album CRASH arrived earlier this year.
