For some reason Tiesto has released a song in Mandarin
With the English (and Dutch) speaking world thoroughly conquered, Tiesto has turned his attention to a new market: China.
The hitmaker born Tijs Verwest has just unveiled his latest collaboration – a song with Chinese pop sensation Jane Zhang, custom made to coincide with Verwest’s headlining spot on Shanghai and Shenzhen’s upcoming STORM Electronic Music Festival.
Together with Zhang he’s re-imagined Change Your World, a track that originally appeared on this year’s Club Life Volume 4: New York compilation. But gone are the original vocals from Nashville singer Morgan Karr, with Zhang delivering a new topline that’s almost entirely in Mandarin. Look for Tiesto fist-pumping in the background of the Change Your World video below.
The potential for 1.3 billion new Chinese fans aside, Tiesto’s other motivation for getting involved may have something to do with the conspicuous branding from Budweiser, one of the many big name sponsors the Dutchman has been involved with over the course of his career. Oh, to be a superstar DJ.
