At first we thought the ecstatic dance tune “Raise Your Hands”, featuring Miguel’s smooth vocals, was produced by David Guetta — the song surely has beats and synth work not atypical to a Guetta-produced club track. But turns out, this is Paul Oakenfold’s handiwork. (Thanks for clearing that up, Miguel.) You’ve raised your glass for Pink, now “Raise Your Hands” for Paul and Miguel by hopping below.[wpaudio url="http://cdn.idolator.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/David-Guetta-Miguel.mp3" text="Paul Oakenfold feat. Miguel - Raise Your Hands" dl="0"]
Miguel’s enthusiasm on this club banger is stellar — we knew he was into the dance party scene, as his favorite song of 2010 was Yeasayer’s “O.N.E.”.
As for the beat, we swear we hear a bit of sampling of Steve Angello & Laidback Luke’s crazy club track “Show Me Love”. Also, we’re wondering if this song isn’t actually called “Put Your Hands Up”, since that’s the refrain in the chorus.
We’re digging it. Are you? Tell us in the comments.
