"This is a collaboration I never thought was gonna happen, so I just thought I had to put all my effort into this..."
Earlier today, Kygo released a brand new song featuring Whitney Houston - one of the world's most loved artists throughout the past few decades.
Combining his signature summer sound with her vocals, the track "Higher Love" is a perfect tribute to the late singer.
During an interview with Zane Lowe, Kygo said:
"I got it in my inbox, and I had the same reaction as you: Whitney Houston, is this a joke? I saw the email about if I could make this work, and I ran to my studio and tried to produce around this amazing vocal. This is definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity. This is a collaboration I never thought was gonna happen, so I just thought I had to put all my effort into this and make it as good as I can."
