Royalty comes together when tropical house king Kygo collaborates with the king of nu-disco Oliver Nelson on “Riding Shotgun”. Featuring vocals from Bonnie McKee, “Riding Shotgun” offers some bouncy electronic production and confident vocals as part of his new album “Kids in Love” which was released November 3rd, 2017 worldwide.
Stemming from Bergen, Norway producer Kygo has garnered an international following, gaining attention through remixes on SoundCloud, & YouTube such as his “I See Fire” remix originally by Ed Sheeran, and his “Often” remix, which is original by The Weeknd. Oliver Nelson whom comes from Stockholm, Sweden has garnered over 70 million streams on Spotify, and 100 million streams on Soundcloud.

Oliver and his nu-disco sound has received major support across the music industry, from names such as: Elton John, Mark Knight, Sam Feldt, Watermat, Thomas Jack, and of course Kygo himself.
Kygo has explained that his second album “Kids in Love” is much about the feeling of “being super-passionate about someone or something” and that’s where “Riding Shotgun” falls right in. The track starts off with the tropical house sounds you’ve grew to love from Kygo before the catchy vocals courtesy of Bonnie McKee take over. “Riding Shotgun” is just as much of a bouncy dance tune, as it is an emotions driven single about love, and it all comes together so elegantly.
