  • Lyrics
  • Robbert van de Corput is a Dutch Progressive and Electro House DJ and music producer, who is better known by his stage name of Hardwell. He is from the same Netherlands town as Tiesto, who was named "World's #1 DJ" three consecutive times by DJ Magazine from 2002 through 2004. Hardwell himself was awarded the prestigious honor for the first time in 2013.
  • The song features vocals by the New York-bred singer and songwriter Matthew Koma, who dares the listener to "break out of the prison" they've become and both love and feel love. Koma is best known for his collaborations with the Russian-German DJ Zedd ("Spectrum," "Clarity") and his girlfriend, Canadian singer Carly Rae Jepson, ("This Kiss").
