As Kygo has slowly pivoted from the EDM hemisphere into pop crossover stardom, as the tropical house pioneer has collaborated with everyone under the sun — from Miguel to Selena Gomez, One Republic to Ellie Goulding, to legendary Irish rock band U2.
Next to appear on the Norwegian producer’s collaborative radar is none other than the Grammy award winning rock band, Imagine Dragons. The radio-ready hit track, “Born To Be Yours,” represents the perfect artistic synergy between the American band’s unmistakable vocal quality and Kygo’s melodic tropical chord progressions. Without a doubt, the single’s most refreshing feature is that Kygo hasn’t forgot his musical roots as he finds ways to integrate his tropical stamp into the mainstream.
Clocking in at just over 3 minutes, it leaves listeners merely wanting more. Balanced, deeply moving, and impressively chill are the end products of a collaboration that surely has fans asking: When are we are going to get more from this match made in the cosmos?
