Kygo and Selena Gomez have a monster hit on their hands with “It Ain’t Me.” Without a video or a single live performance, the song has racked up 210 million streams on Spotify (it’s currently the second most-streamed song in the world), 140 million views on YouTube and cracked the top 10 in every market except America. It’s popularity will soar even higher with the arrival of Tiesto’s suitably dark and majestic AFTR:HRS remix.
DJ Tiësto is an expert at remixing songs without diluting their essence (listen to his overhauls of Niall Horan’s “This Town” and Calum Scott’s “Dancing On My Own” for proof) and he leaves “It Ain’t Me” largely intact. Instead of chopping up Selena’s vocal, Tiesto focuses on the drop — extending and enriching it. This is an essential addition to any workout or party playlist.
