MNEK unveils swooning R&B single "Paradise"

12 July 2017, 16:14 | Written by Laurence Day

MNEK is back with "Paradise", a late-night summer scorcher that builds on the key lick from Ultra Nate's "Free".

The Grammy-nominated producer positions himself properly in front of the boards on "Paradise", showcasing his impressive vocal skills like never before.

"Around the time I wrote 'Paradise', so much dance music was coming out and doing well with literally any '90s R&B song as the main topline, of the whole song. It really bothered me!" MNEK explains. "So, I decided to sample a dance song for an R&B track. I've always loved 'Free' by Ultra Nate, so it was such an honour to have the blessing of the writers of the song to sample it for 'Paradise'."

"Paradise" is the follow up to to last year's "At Night (I Think About You)" and Zara Larsson smash "Never Forget You". As well as Larsson, MNEK has collaborated with some of music's biggest names and fastest risers, including Beyoncé, Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Clean Bandit, Stormzy, Dua Lipa, MØ, and Little Mix.

The new track will appear on MNEK's upcoming album due in 2018.
