Tiësto ft. Stargate & Aloe Blacc – Carry You Home
Aloe Blacc does it again, except this time, with another EDM superstar, Tiësto. A new addition to the rBeatzRadio lineup is Carry You Home produced by Tiësto and featuring Stargate & Aloe Blacc. You might remember Aloe Blacc from his massive hit with Avicii, Wake Me Up, which charted in the #1 spot in 22 countries! That’s crazy! Wake Me Up also holds the record on Spotify for longest time at #1 most streamed. The smash hit was the most streamed song on Spotify for over a year (480 days to be exact).
With Aloe Blacc’s vocals and Tiësto’s massive production with aid from production due Stargate, this song has that wide country road feel that brings me back to the days of electro house. I’ve always thought that country house was going to get bigger, and this song is just another tick on that box. Avicii started going this route; however, ever since he slowed down, nobody has been there to pick up where he left off. Until now. Thank you Tiësto!
Aloe Blacc’s is considered a soul and funk vocalist, but when he’s giving a country electronic platform, his vocals get so wide and big. You might have also heard of Aloe Blacc’s I Need A Dollar, which reached 1 million in sales in 2013. He had a much more soulful vocal in this one, and this track was suppose to be more subdued than the anthem Tiësto and Avicii created with his voice.
Tiësto recently reached the #5 slot on DJ Mag’s top 100 DJs. He’s been in the top 5 since 2004 (and probably before that as well), only taking the top spot in 2004. Tiësto is probably the longest running most successful DJ of all time.

They have produced for Beyoncé, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Mariah Carey, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez, Janet Jackson, Shakira, Mary J.

The song hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
