R3hab and Laidback Luke Collaboration
“Weekend on a Tuesday” a Huge Success
A massive collaboration between two Dutch icons delivers a solid house anthem. The song “Weekend on a Tuesday” celebrates the weekend vibe in the middle of the standard workweek. The song encourages listeners to live for the now, enjoying the current moment, instead of waiting for Friday to party it up. “This is a song about breaking away from the norm and choosing to follow your own beat. Sometimes you need to bring the energy to the start of the week – this song is made to get the party started, and we are happy to be part of the launch of anotherblock platform,” says R3hab of the song.
And the song does just that. With pitched-down vocals at the beginning, a pulsing bassline, and that dance/party vibe, this song makes you want to move. It makes you think dance scene or beach party and leaves you with a feeling of belonging and happiness.
When this single released, the public had an opportunity to buy a royalty share NFT of the single, which allows fans to earn royalties alongside the artists. R3hab and Laidback Luke partnered with anotherblock for this fantastic opportunity, bringing music and cryptocurrency together.
