Niall Horan Drops A Diplo Remix Of “Nice To Meet Ya”
After carving out a niche as a contemplative crooner on Flicker, Niall Horan really switched it up with “Nice To Meet Ya.” Produced by Julian Bunetta, the first taste of NH2 is a throwback to the rollicking rock of ’00s favorites Kasabian and Arctic Monkeys. It was a bit of an adjustment, but the song is a grower and destined to climb a lot higher than its current chart peak of 83 on the Billboard Hot 100. Particularly if the Irishman promotes it with a couple of live performances.
The arrival of a remix courtesy of Diplo will also help its cause. The EDM stalwart strips “Nice To Meet Ya” back to its bare bones and completely reproduces the track with a rave-y, house twist. It works exceedingly well and even comes with a (slightly terrifying) video, which transposes Diplo’s head onto Niall’s. The visual is nightmare fuel, but there’s no denying that this is a banger.
