R3HAB & Mr Eazi & Wafia Share New Single ‘I Wanna Run Away’

 Following the release of Deixa Se Envolver (Spring Love), his recent collaboration with Brazilian artists MC Kevin O Chris and LUCK MUZIK, Dutch/Moroccan powerhouse producer R3HAB returns with yet another uplifting piece of electronic music titled I Wanna Run Away.

Out now via BMG Rights Management, I Wanna Run Away finds R3HAB joining forces with leading Nigerian artist Mr Eazi and Gold-certified Australian alt-pop singer/songwriter Wafia, which exemplifies their diverse capabilities as artists who can cross genre boundaries with sophisticated ease. Drawing on all three artists' unique sounds, I Wanna Run Away is a captivating blend of dance, pop and afropop that creates a highly infectious and upbeat atmosphere that is guaranteed to get you in a good mood in no time. Opening with organic instrumental chords and a reggae-inspired vocal hook, the track builds gradually into upbeat melodies that instantly gave me tropical island summer vibes. This is one of those songs perfect to get us ready for a chill weekend and to keep us warm during the Winter days ahead. Check it out below!


Speaking about the collaboration, R3HAB said,

I've been a big fan of Mr Eazi for years, and this record has been a long time coming. We began the idea a few years ago and have come back to it many times for revisions and updates. We finally realized the song needed another perspective to land, and that's when I asked Wafia to join. The pure clarity of her voice complements Eazi's delivery and brings levels of nuance to the record. We love how it turned out and can't wait to share it with the world.

Mr Eazi added,
Sometimes you're in too deep, and you don't know what to do besides resort to desperate measures. But, once you're through it and have some space, you can channel it over a dance beat and claim your liberation. This song took a long time to figure out, but we solved it and are glad to share it now. Thanks to R3HAB for creating a production that works equally for dancing or for experiencing a full range of emotions, and thanks to Wafia for lending your lovely voice. Listeners, this song is yours now.

Wafia noted,
I've been a fan of R3HAB for such a long time, and I'm so glad we finally got to put out this song with Mr Eazi. I feel so honored to be hopping on a track with these two legendary artists!
