Nothing Really Matters

Album: The London Sessions (2020)
Charted: 76

Songfacts®:

  • This deeply melodic house number is a collaboration between Tiesto and the English singer-songwriter Becky Hill. The hookup came about after the Dutch DJ's team asked her to write for him.
  • Released on April 17, 2020 during the coronavirus pandemic era, the song's let's-love-like-there's-no-tomorrow message seemed pertinent to the times. However, Hill told The Sun the song was one of four she wrote with Ryan Ashley, Karen Poole, Josh Record and Ollie Green during a writing camp back in 2019 – well before the COVID-19 era.

    "I like to have a concept at the start of sessions but we didn't have anything particular in mind," she said. "Then we started writing about the world ending. It was all written and done last summer but it feels really fitting with the situation we're in now."
  • Becky Hill is no stranger to dance music, having previously been the voice behind bangers produced by the likes of Oliver Heldens, Meduza and Sigala.
  • Tiesto produced the track with Gorgon City. The English electronic music production duo are best known for their UK Top 10 singles "Ready For Your Love" and "Here for You."
