Toby Gad Releases New Version of “LITTLE DO YOU KNOW” featuring Keke Palmer & Aloe Blacc
Los Angeles-based DJ Toby Gad teamed up with American actress-singer Keke Palmer and American singer-songwriter Aloe Blacc to release a new version of “LITTLE DO YOU KNOW” on February 2, 2024.
Originally, Toby Gad wrote the song with American duo Alex & Sierra, and the duo released it from their debut album “It's About Us” in 2014.
But the song went to viral on TikTok, recently. This time, he re-recored the song with Keke Palmer and Aloe Blacc.
The track was written by Ali Tamposi, Ruth Ann Cunningham, Sierra Dalton, and Toby Gad. Produced by Toby Gad.
Toby Gad said of the song, “How 'Little Do You Know' became one of my biggest songs! The album's called 'Piano Diaries' and I'm re-recoding some of the songs that I've written with new artists that I love like both of you. And 'Little Do You Know', I feel very special about it and I think you're (Keke Palmer) killing it. It's a and you (Aloe Blacc) too, amazing. It's a song I wrote it originally with Alex and Sierra, and Alex & Sierra won X Factor, and released the song soon. After it kind of flopped nobody care about it. And then just recently my little daughter sang the song and my wife was like, you know this is daddy's song right and she was 'no way this is a TikTok song.' And then we had found out this song has gone viral on TikTok. It's now one of my biggest songs. And that is a long time ago that we recorded it, so I felt it needs a new recording and that's what we're doing now.”
Aloe Blacc continued, “That's awesome. Well thank you for asking me to be on the song it was a great privilege to work with you again and to sing with Keke, Superstar.”
Keke Palmer added, “I felt the same way. I mean I've I only know you Aloe as fan other than today and getting chance to meet you. And call you a collaborator and hopefully more. But I remember we were trying to figure out who is gonna be the other person, he kind of put me through the ringer and maybe sing all of his vocal parts, I don't know why. Today is honestly ruthless but he does everything with the smile, he's like one more time sing it again.”
After the release of the song, Italian DJ Axel Cooper released a remix of the song. The remix version of the song was produced by Axel Cooper and Toby Gad.
