OMI - Cheerleader

Today is a great day, because it is one of my daughter's birthday.

Hey, this is your last single-digit birthday. You are getting so grown up — not only in age, but also in the way you act. I'm so proud of you. Happy 9th birthday!

This also means that she is the household's boss during her birthday, she decides to to a certain extent on what is to happen. Some things are already pre-ordered for this day, such as breakfast in bed, dinner will be her absolute top one and of course she should be allowed to choose a favourite song too. So today's tune is "Ronja's" favourite at the moment!

Insightful Jamaican artist OMI (Omar Samuel Pasley) is bringing his breakthrough story to the U.S., with the compelling sheen of “Cheerleader,” leading the way. The smash dance song has notched more than 90 million Spotify streams, topping iTunes in 14 territories, including Germany, Australia, Sweden and others (Top 10 in nearly 30 other markets). Released in 2012, a cleverly understated remix by German DJ/Producer Felix Jaehn helped power the global momentum building around the infectious track.

“Cheerleader” originally took off in Hawaii, but Omi was getting a larger sense of the song’s ‘stickiness’ where ever he performed it live. “People just gravitated to it, always remarking how it was their favorite.” Felix Jaehn’s 2014 remix added to the combustible nature of the track,” but by deftly imbuing acoustic gestures into the mix – conga, piano, trumpet – embellishing its unornamented feel. “I loved the mix even before it took off,” says Omi. “So calm; And unusual for a remix, it made you want to listen to the words, too.”

Today's tune "Cheerleader" (Felix Jaehn Remix) with OMI. Happy Birthday Ronja, Love U!
