James HYPE & Kim Petras Team Up for New Song “Drums”
British DJ James HYPE teamed up with German singer-songwriter Kim Petras to release a new song “Drums” on October 6, 2023.
This marks the first collaboration between James HYPE and Kim Petras.
The song samples American singer-songwriter Justin Timberlake's “Like I Love You” featuring Clipse, which was released in 2002.
The track was written by James Hype, Kim Petras, Johannes Shore, Josh Grimmett, Goodboys, Michele Carmine, Chad Hugo, Pusha T, No Malice, Pharrell Williams and Justin Timberlake. Produced by James HYPE.
James HYPE said of the song, “The Hypefam heard it and not only demanded I release it, they had already renamed it ‘Drums’ of their own accord! The song part was also written a few years ago with some good friends, who have worked with me in the studio quite a bit.”
He continued, “Fast forward to 2023, I met Kim in LA and we got together to create this version of ‘Drums’ you hear now. We were also incredibly blessed to have Justin Timberlake agree to keep his original vocal, so this record feels incredibly special to me - Who does this?”
