Paul Oakenfold and Luis Fonsi dedicate The World Can Wait Music Video to front line workers around the world
I am seriously in love with this track! I reported on it a few weeks back and whew, guys, it’s a gorgeous track. World-class DJ legend Paul Oakenfold and Latin multi-Grammy award winner Luis Fonsi share a heartfelt video for their collaboration ‘The World Can Wait.’ And the video is phenomenal as well!
The music video is dedicated to front line workers around the world. For instance, the video includes touching footage from hospitals, patients, and healthcare workers helping to save those impacted by the virus. Additional fan-submitted footage shows our world carrying on and masked for safety, mixed with footage from both artists’ shows, as the lyrics share a hopeful message throughout the video. It’s relevant to current times but still hopeful, as we all need that right now!
There Are Remixes Too??
If that isn’t enough for ya, in addition to The World Can Wait music video, Paul Oakenfold also presents four new remixes of “The World Can Wait” that span a variety of genres. SWEET! The legendary Kilanova offers a cinematic remix, providing the track an anthemic soundscape. Additionally, John Askew’s remix skews downtempo and allows for Luis Fonsi’s heartfelt lyrics to really shine. Meanwhile, the blklght remix kicks the track up a notch with a house tempo, ready for your home dancefloor. Get your dancing shoes on! Lastly, Rafael Osmo x Spectral share a gorgeous trance remix of the emotional track. Crazy how each one is different but still helps the original shine.
The track was co-produced by DJWS (Lady Gaga, Pitbull). ‘The World Can Wait’ is the first single from Paul Oakenfold’s upcoming studio album “Shine On” due later this year. Can’t wait for that to debut! Paul’s new album, his first since the critically acclaimed “A Lively Mind” (2006) and “Bunkka” (2000) will veer down a decidedly chilled out path, making it an incredibly listenable album and not one solely crafted for the dance floor. He’s had plenty of time to perfect his craft!
