While all of hip-hop works on their collab albums, dance music veterans wanna show they, too, can create supergroups.
Enter 3 Are Legend, a triumphant tri-force of big house brightness from Steve Aoki, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. It’s a collaboration that’s been teased for a while, and today, the three men release their first official single, the aptly titled “We Are Legend.”
Fans keeping notes will recall a teaser version featuring vocals from Matthew Koma, but this free release spotlights Abigail Breslin. Yes, that is the actress notable for her role as the innocent star and dirty-dancing cutie pie of Little Miss Sunshine. She’s embraced her gifts as a singer lately, and she’s downright angelic on “We Are Legend,” providing a soft counterpart to the tune’s big synth drop.
Think of this song as a late-onset holiday gift from your buddies Aoki, Vegas and Mike. Look out for Aoki on tour with Desiigner in support of his hip-hop album Kolony in early 2018, and big things coming from Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike whose “Complicated” with David Guetta and Kiiara just peaked at no. 22 on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart. Oh, and don’t forget to listen to “We Are Legend” below.
