Today, Danish dance-pop group Aqua and DJ and music producer Tiësto released the first-ever remix of Aqua’s iconic hit song, ‘Barbie Girl.‘ The remix is a larger-than-life take on the original track, with Tiësto’s signature electronic sound giving the song a fresh new feel. The remix was inspired by Tiësto’s daughter, who loves the original “Barbie Girl” song. “I wanted to make a version of the song that my daughter could dance to,” Tiësto said in a statement. “I think she’ll love it.”
The remix is perfect for the dancefloor, with its upbeat tempo and catchy melody. It’s also a great modern take on a classic pop song. The original “Barbie Girl” was released in 1997 and became a global hit, reaching number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song has been streamed over 9 billion times worldwide and has over 1 billion views on YouTube.
The remix comes at a time when there is renewed interest in the original “Barbie Girl.” The song has seen an increase in consumption in recent months, thanks to the 25th anniversary of the track and the release of the upcoming Barbie film trailer, which features the chorus of the song.
When asked about the remix, Aqua & Tiesto both had the following to say:
“In many ways, Tiësto and our ride are quite alike. We’ve both been around for a while and have had to navigate through a constantly evolving music industry. I believe the reason we are both still here today is because we’ve never strayed from what we originally set out to do: have fun, let go, and party with our fans like there’s no tomorrow!” says Lene.
“When Tiësto reached out, I felt both honored and very lucky that he wanted to work with us. At the same time, I also thought, ‘Well of course he does. We’re the perfect match!’. After hearing what he’s done with the song, I can now say with certainty that I was 100% right”, Rene says, laughing.
“’Barbie Girl’ is one of the most iconic pop songs in history, and I couldn’t be more honored to put my spin on it. My daughter absolutely loves this song, which is what inspired the remix, and makes this one even more special. I can’t wait to see everyone go crazy on the dance floor to it!”
Tiësto’s remix of “Barbie Girl” is a fun and upbeat track that is perfect for the dancefloor. The song retains the catchy melody of the original, but Tiësto adds his own electronic sound to give it a modern feel. The result is a song that is sure to get people dancing.
The remix is also a great example of how a classic pop song can be updated for a new generation.
