LOS ANGELES, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Grammy Award®-winning producer and DJ, Afrojack, today released his long-awaited new single, "As Your Friend" featuring Chris Brown. Fans can exclusively purchase the song at the iTunes US Store released on Wall Recordings, Afrojack's self-owned label. The single will mark the first release off of Afrojack's forthcoming debut album, set to release this year.
The track showcasing Afrojack's larger than life production techniques combined with Chris Brown's vocals, has already received strong radio support by mix shows worldwide, making the single a highly anticipated release. "As Your Friend" by Afrojack featuring Chris Brown, was written by Afrojack, Chris Brown, Leroy Styles and Nadir Sakir and produced by Afrojack with co-production by Leroy Styles, DJ Buddha and Polow da Don.
One of the most sought-after producers and DJs in the world, Afrojack, born Nick van de Wall, has been presented with Grammy Awards® for Best Remix (Madonna, "Revolver") in 2011 and in 2012 for his co-production duties on Chris Brown's "Look At Me Now." The producer's single "Take Over Control" featuring Eva Simons hit platinum in 2012 and he produced, co-wrote and featured on the number one hit "Give Me Everything" with Pitbull, Ne-Yo and Nayer, making Afrojack a multi-platinum artist.
He added to his list of unbeatable original productions and remixes with will.i.am's "This is Love" featuring Eva Simons, his remix of Michael Jackson's "BAD" and original track "Can't Stop Me" featuring Shermanology, which received top radio play in the US. Afrojack has quickly become one of electronic dance music's major icons exploding into the United States in 2010, and shortly after solidified his own imprint, Wall Recordings, as a pioneering club music brand – a value he holds dear as label boss and ensures with every release.
Just a few weeks ago, Afrojack was introduced by the legendary Clive Davis at the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Gala 2013, to perform among music icons and industry legends, as a representation of the dance music culture. Afrojack introduced his new single, "As Your Friend" featuring Chris Brown during the electronic set.
