R3HAB explores uncharted sonic territory on 'Bésame (I Need You)', his sultry new collaboration with singer/actress TINI and Latin Grammy-winning Latin Pop trio Reik.
We quickly find out what happens when three powerhouses of this magnitude come together, as the track subtly fuses exquisite elements of each one's signature sound. R3HAB delivers his deep, driving drum bass lines that serve as the backbone of the song, asking listeners to get up and dance, while Reik's influence plays with Latin-infused melodies that give "Bésame (I Need You)" exotic appeal.
Platinum-certified TINI and Reik come together for a female/male vocal group, evoking images of a balmy and enthralling night out dancing. The single is out now on Hollywood Records and follows R3HAB's releases "Feel Alive" for "SCOOB!" movie's soundtrack as well as "Be Okay" with HRVY.
Over the last eight years, the Dutch/Moroccan artist Fadil El Ghoul - better known as R3HAB - has established himself as a leader at the forefront of modern electronic music and he's circuited the globe's best clubs and festivals, all without the backing of a formal record label.
In 2017, R3HAB independently released his debut album "Trouble" through his imprint CYB3RPVNK, which amassed over a half-billion streams globally and officially placed R3HAB among electronic music's heavy hitters, topping the charts with tracks like "Lullaby" and "Hold On Tight," while his sophomore album "The Wave," revealing more complex, emotional and experimental layers of himself, has amassed over 250 million streams on Spotify alone.
In 2019 R3HAB's “All Around The World”' with A Touch of Class quickly became his biggest ever record already topping 200M streams across platforms and achieving gold & platinum status in 8 countries. It was followed by "Flames," R3HAB's collaboration with ZAYN.
"Right after we started working on the song, it was clear what the sound of the track will be like. Tini & Reik brought the perfect energy, which you can hear throughout the entire song. "Besame (I Need You)" is being released right in time to provide these necessary summer vibes to our fans." - R3HAB
Since her 2016 debut album, TINI has become a global phenomenon since the release of her 2016 debut album, with a social following of 24 million and 3 billion combined audio and video streams.
Between touring Europe and Latin America on a headline tour which included 9 sold out dates at Luna Park in Beunos Aires, and her recent releases accumulating over 1 billion streams, TINI has had numerous collaborations with fellow A-list artists and will joining the judging panel on the upcoming season of The Voice in Spain, airing later this year.
"I am so excited to work with Reik and Rehab. I find it very interesting to explore new musical styles, and Bésame definitely has a special sound, distinctive from other songs. I feel very honored to collaborate with these two great artists." - TINI

"We love the song. It's super energetic, it makes one dance and have fun all the time. It's one of those songs that you really just wanna jump to. Looking back, we remember meeting TINI at a concert in Argentina when she was 15, or so. It's crazy now having the song together with her. About R3HAB, we just recently met him, and we love what he does. He already remixed our earlier single "Si Me Dices Que Si," and it blew our mind, as he took the song to another dimension. Collaborating with R3HAB again is awesome" - Reik
