“When Allegra shared her new track with me, it instantly inspired an idea for a higher energy version,” said Tiësto the Grammy-winning “godfather of EDM” known for his work with Ed Sheeran, Tate McRae, Charli XCX, Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears and Coldplay.
Tiësto, 54, added, “We worked on it some time ago, and I’m so happy for it to finally be released to the world!”
London-based Allegra, 21, released the original single last month and is “thrilled” by the remix which pairs the new track with an intoxicating dance music video.
With a sea of backing dancers behind her, Allegra steals the show with her incredible outfits and her alluring dance moves.
Dressed predominately in black, juxtaposed with her wavy golden hair, the young pop star’s presence exudes mystique and charm as she stays front and centre of this stunning video wearing meshed tops, waist-riding skirts, and glossy leather trousers.
Allegra and her team of dancers flit from warehouse stages to club dance floors and a shallow pool of water that has the whole team soaking.
Speaking about her remix, Allegra said: “It’s an absolute dream come true to work with someone as influential and talented as he is.”
She added “He’s brought in his signature electronic sound, creating this insane energy that’ll have people hitting the dance floor.
“I’m all about exploring and pushing my limits as an artist, and this experience has inspired me to keep pushing my boundaries. His attention to detail and passion for creating unforgettable music is next-level. I can’t wait to share this remix with you all!”
Out now via Radikal Records, Round & Round follows on from a string of releases in 2022, but marks her first official release of this year.
Allegra was signed at 14 and had two chart entries and more than two million streams before her 20th birthday.
She says, “I’ve been developing as an artist ever since I got signed, learning from and working with a lot of talented people. I just feel like I’m on a bit of a crazy journey that my 14-year-old self would just dream about.
“I would define myself as an artist who only writes what’s real. Every song that I release is personal to myself so that I can connect with my fans.”
Allegra adds a splash of colour and class to the video with a lime green overcoat layered over a black leotard and ankle boots.
Complemented by gold rings, hooped earrings, and necklaces, the coat becomes a captivating visual element as bright green neon lights illuminate the singer from behind.
Allegra is no stranger to working with the world’s biggest DJs, with tracks remixed by the likes of R3HAB, DJ Majestic, Tobtok, and Full Intention, among others.
But with 8 billion global streams, 36+ million total record sales, and 30+ million social audiences under his belt, that makes Tiësto her biggest collaborator
Tiësto has delivered a jaw-dropping remix, applying all his usual production quality, trademark sound, and musical hooks, making his interpretation an instant crowd-pleaser.
The new mix perfectly straddles the fence between club and pop music, which will open up the door for support from big-room DJs and daytime radio DJs.
In what is a potentially career-defining moment for the singer, it seems as though Allegra couldn’t be more excited for the release to be out.
After listening to the remix, Allegra immediately knew that she wanted to deliver a dance-based music video to suit the production and emphasise his incredible work, which she has done to full effect.
In 2021, her debut single All About Us peaked at the number 2 position on the UK’s official Music Week Commercial Pop Club Charts, and she has gone on to repeat that success with a run of six Top 3 singles on that same chart.
Alongside a Top 10 position on the Billboard Dance Chart in the US and amassing millions of views and streams across Spotify, YouTube, and other social media platforms, perhaps this collaboration for the artist just marks another step in a potentially long, prosperous career.
You can listen to Tiësto’s remix of Round & Round across all streaming platforms.
