Matoma and Enrique Iglesias in new collaboration – New song “I Don’t Dance (Without You)” out now

By on August 3, 2018

The Norwegian houseproducer Matoma has collaborated with Enrique Iglesias for his new song. The results were summoned “I Don’t Dance (Without You) Feat. Konshens” which is also hosted by the Jamaican dancehall artist Konshens. On August 24, Matoma also releases his debut album “One In A Million”.

“When we created the song I remember being nervous in the studio because I was working with someone who I’ve admired for so long,” – Matoma

Matoma has been a fan of Enrique Iglesias for years and his remix of Enrique’s song “Bailando” received much love on SoundCloud and was the start of Matoma’s career. When Matoma was later signed, he got to list his dream artists and songwriters to work with, the answer was: “If you can get me in the studio with Enrique for an original collaboration together I would have achieved one of my bucket list goals.”

The debut album “One In A Million” retells and reflects Matom’s childhood until today. As a child, Matoma played the piano and in the summers he cut the neighbors lawns to save up to his own computer to start producing his own music. When Matoma served in the Norwegian army he became ill and spent a couple of months in hospital. That’s when he realized his passion for the music and he decided to invest in that. After Matoma became educated in music production, he started releasing bootleg remixes. Over the next few years, Matoma has collaborated with several world artists and songwriters such as Dua Lipa, Coldplay and One Direction and his songs have streamed over one billion times.

“They really took off and now this is my job. I know it doesn’t always happen like that. I count myself so lucky to have this opportunity and I want to use it to spread positivity in the world and inspire others. We are all special.” – Matoma

“In the past few years since I have been making music I have been so lucky to have travelled the world, worked with some incredible artists and met my amazing followers, supporters and fans. For me this is a one in a million opportunity and I say it every day – without my fans there would be no Matoma. Every single person in the crowd is special; we all have hearts, soul, passion and dreams. That is what this album is about” – Matoma
