Martin Garrix and Bebe Rexha made an recent appearance on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge series to perform their song “In The Name of Love” along with a cover of Twenty One Pilots’ “Heathens.” The intimate performance of the latter features a stripped-down backing of bass, keyboards, and of course Rexha’s signature vocals and Garrix on guitar. Watch the performance above.
“In The Name of Love” is an infectious collaboration between the “Animals” producer and the breakout singer unlike any of the two’s previous efforts. The arrangement contrasts a combination of Rexha’s sultry vocals against a backdrop of Garrix’s booming future bass production.
The Dutch producer first premiered the song at his Ultra Music Festival set earlier this year in March. He later officially announced its release through his digital media platforms as well as in an interview at Tomorrowland 2016.
In August, the official music video “In The Name of Love” was released on both Apple Music and YouTube generating over 30 million views.
“In The Name of Love” by Martin Garrix & Bebe Rexha was released on July 29 through Garrix’s own label STMPD RCRDS and distributed by Sony. The single is available on all digital retailers now.
