Rising Swedish artist and producer, Hellberg, returns with a fresh new record, ‘Headlights’, in collaboration with British vocal powerhouse, Leona Lewis. Released under Sony Music, the song marks a new direction in Hellberg’s career, as his music shifts towards a modern and redefined sound.
Widely-renowned for producing ‘The Girl’, Monstercat’s most streamed song in 2015, Hellberg is back with his best work to date. After the success of his last release, ‘Hey Mama’, he’s now teamed up with global singing sensation and three-time GRAMMY-nominated artist Leona Lewis to deliver ‘Headlights’.
Electric, energetic, and euphoric, ‘Headlights’ is another stellar track that once again showcases Jonathan Hellberg’s boundless diversity and accomplished sound. A beautiful piano melody sets up the record before Leona’s delicate voice glides in. Innovative rhythms and heavy drops contrast beautifully with deep verses and scorched soul vocals. With diverse backgrounds, Hellberg and Leona’s partnership manifests an incredible cross-over of pop and dance music.
The inspiration of behind the record is translated through the raw and heart-wrenching music video, depicting love, independence and the relatable complexities of romantic relationships. Starring Hellberg, the video was filmed and directed in LA by Frank Borin.
Hellberg says, “I’ve been working on Headlights for over a year now and I’m so excited to finally be able to release it with the amazing Leona Lewis. She’s been the most gracious and professional artist I’ve worked with and getting to know her these last few months has been amazing.”
He continues, “The record is about independence and finding the strength to break free from a bad relationship. If it can make someone out there say “enough is enough” and help them change their life for the better, then I’d be incredibly happy.”
“Working with Hellberg on creating something so different has been a lot of fun!” said Leona. “‘Headlights’ is about finding your own light and trusting in your own strength to get through tough times. I love being able to use my voice in different types of music to touch people across the world. I hope this song connects as deeply with everyone as it does with me.”
