Best dance track of the year? Sean Paul, Clean Bandit and Anne-Marie – Rockabye
Sean Paul is back. After Cheap Thrills with Sia, he’s collaborated with Clean Bandit and Anne-Marie on Rockabye and this track is just as likely to get you on the dance floor.
In 1993, Swedish popsters Ace Of Base broke through with their reggae-influenced dance gem “All That She Wants,” which contains the eyebrow-raising, though instantly recognizable chorus, “All that she wants is another baby!”
Twenty-three years later, enter British act Clean Bandit with their Ace Of Base-esque new single “Rockabye,” a song about an actual baby (and, by extension, a single mom). “Cheap Thrills” rapper Sean Paul and British “Alarm” singer Anne-Marielend their vocals to the sentimental tune, which follows up Clean Bandit’s global summer hit “Tears.”
Sadly for fans of Clean Bandit, member Neil Amin-Smith announced his departure from the group this week. While he had a hand in the recording of “Rockabye,” there’s no news yet as to how much further his musicianship will make it onto the band’s yet-to-be-released sophomore LP, aside from the two singles released this year.
“Rockabye” managed to find its way online a day ahead of its official October 21st release date
The video’s mad but worth a watch for some old British men, some pole dancers and that cello.
