Martin Solveig And Roy Woods Unveil Feelgood, Piano-Driven New Single ‘Juliet & Romeo’

Platinum-certified DJ and producer Martin Solveig and Drake-signed, OVO artist, Roy Woods have dropped massive new single ‘Juliet & Romeo’, out December 6th via Positiva.  Not shy of producing a track that turns to gold, ‘Juliet & Romeo’ looks like it could be the latest Martin Solveig single to take the world by storm.

Harnessing the kind of infectiously feelgood vibe that Martin Solveig has made his trademark, ‘Juliet & Romeo’ is a piano-driven slice of feel good dance music that utilises Roy Woods’ fresh vocals to masterful effect. Martin also takes the opportunity to collaborate with long-time friend and fellow producer Kolsch, who provides a sample from his seminal track, ‘Der Alte’, taken from his 2013 album, ‘1977’.

A singer, songwriter and rapper, Roy Woods is best known for smash hit ‘Drama’, a collaboration with Drake that has amassed over 175 million Spotify streams. Signed to Drake’s OVO Sound imprint, Woods most recently released ‘Bubbly’ back in September. His back-catalogue also includes 2015 hit ‘Jealousy’, a track that has racked up 11 million hits on YouTube alone, while he boasts over 500 million Spotify streams across his career.

It follows ‘Thing For You’, Solveig’s collaboration with fellow French dance music legend David Guetta. The track has clocked up 22 million Spotify streams and counting. This was preceded by the highly successful hit ‘All Day and Night’ featuring Madison Beer, a single released by Martin Solveig and Jax Jones under their joint Europa alias, which has garnered over 150 million global streams and was remixed by dance music royalty Axwell.

Solveig has spent 2019 performing at some of the biggest clubs and festivals, including Tomorrowland, SW4, Parookaville and a weekly residency at Pacha Ibiza.

My Take on Juliet and Romeo:

I would say from the title of this song, that it would be a soothing song. But no, this song is upbeat and has an upbeat backing track to it, and the upbeat vocals tie in seamlessly. With the house vibe, Martin and Roy have go above and beyond, to make this an amazing track that will get stuck in your head, both lyrics and beat. It makes you want to dance and if this song was to come on in the club, it would definitely be a dance floor hit. I love the piano chords also throughout the song. Definitely a bop and should be very popular!
