Becky G Links Up With Digital Farm Animals & Rvssian On “Next To You”
Does Becky G ever sleep? Based on her incredible workload, I’m going to guess the answer is no. The 22-year-old graced us with new content every week for the last month and a half. From her slick, self-assured “Green Light Go” to last week’s Maluma-assisted “La Respuesta,” she always keeps us guessing what is next. But, impressively, each is better than the last. That trend continues today (April 26) with “Next To You.” This time around, the pop star links up with Digital Farm Animals and Rvssian for an electro-kissed club anthem. And it sounds like what should be an inescapable hit.
Despite boasting a light production lush with flourishes of synth and haunting whistles, regret and longing drive the song. In particular, music’s busiest hitmaker opens up about a lost opportunity with the perfect partner. “I wasn’t ready to find you, but I was so naive. I do this every time, I wish I could rewind it,” Becky earnestly laments. Her sorrow spills over on the chorus. “I should’ve been there right next to you.” Of course, the visual queen and her collaborators also shot a video for the single. Directed by Daniel Duran, it bottles the feelings of loneliness and loss perfectly.
Digital Farm Animals (real name Nick Gale) opened up about working on “Next To You” in a press release. “’Next To You’ is about wanting to be with people you trust and love,” he explained. “Working with Becky and Rvssian was a really intense creative process. We’re all super passionate about every detail and it has been a truly collaborative and unique experience. If you don’t want to dance to the whistle, I don’t know what will make you dance.” Check out the video below.
