Kris Fade Drops New Single 'In It For Love'
Award-winning Virgin Radio DJ (and Ahlan! columnist) Kris Fade has just announced his new single – a collaboration with top-selling Moroccan hip hop artist Two Tone. Entitled In It For Love, the song was debuted on Virgin Radio today, with an official release lined up on iTunes Middle East next week.
The follow-up to Almost Famous – the song that started as an in-studio dare and ended up as a no1 UAE radio smash – In It For Love is an infectious and playful swipe at certain members of the Dubai in-crowd, particularly gold-digging women and flashy, label-obsessed men. As the lyrics put it; ‘You ever heard of love at first sight? No? You just might if the Jimmy Choo fits right’. Ouch.
“We’re really excited about releasing this song to the public and hope that they will love listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it,” says Kris. “It’s been a work in progress for some time now, and while it’s just a bit of a fun music endeavour, I think it really captures some of the characters you find here in Dubai.”
Two Tone – who also had a massively successful 2014, with iTunes Middle East no1 smash Mektab/Destiny with Arabic heavyweight Rhany – said; “Kris Fade is one of my best friends, and it’s always fun to get the chance to hit the recording studio with one of your closest friends. I’m really excited for him. I think In It For Love is a great track, it represents the region well, and we hope the fans will enjoy it.”
Kris and Two Tone will be performing the single live at RedfestDXB in February, and it comes out on iTunes on Mon 2 Feb in the Middle East and Weds 11 Feb worldwide. For more info, check out www.krisfade.com and www.twotonedxb.com.
