God Is A Dancer
by Tiesto (featuring Mabel)

Album: Single release only (2018)
  • Back in 2018, Ariana Grande stirred some controversy among faith-based groups by claiming "God Is A Woman." Here, guest vocalist Mabel sings of her belief that "God is a dancer." In this instance, she's singing of a girl who gets so lost on the dance floor it becomes a religious experience for her.
  • The song was DJ Tiësto's second consecutive single release with an UK act, following "Ritual" with Jonas Blue and Rita Ora.
  • "God Is A Dancer" is a slice of modern pop mixed with Tiësto's '90s-house-inspired beats. The Dutch DJ penned the tune with the Welsh singer-songwriter Violet Skies, and with Josh Wilkinson (Alexandra Burke's "Elephant," 5 Seconds of Summer's "Good Girls").
