DJ and producer Steve Aoki teams up with Lil Yachty and certified platinum pop group AJR to release his latest single, which is a power-pop collab titled “Pretender.” The upbeat number puts Aoki’s trademark style of bringing together A-list collaborators across different genres to the electronic world. Meanwhile, “Pretender” uses a catchy hook from AJR and Yachty’s melodic, unmistakable vocals, over Aoki’s party-ready groove overlaid with lush atmospherics.
In regards to song, Aoki explains in a press release, “I’ve been so excited to finally release Pretender. Worked with two of my favorite artists that are pushing culture in their own way,” said Aoki. “You get a mix of all of our genres in this smash. Hope you love it as much as I loved producing it.”
