World-class DJ legend Paul Oakenfold and Latin multi-Grammy award winner Luis Fonsi
share a heartfelt video for their collaboration ‘The World Can Wait’. Dedicated to frontline
workers around the world, the video includes touching footage from hospitals, patients and
healthcare workers helping to save those impacted by the virus. Additional fan submitted
footage shows our world carrying on and masked for safety, mixed with footage from both
artists’ shows, as the lyrics share a hopeful message throughout the video.
Co-produced by DJWS (Lady Gaga, Pitbull), ‘The World Can Wait’ is the first single from Paul Oakenfold’s upcoming studio album Shine On, due later this year. Paul’s new album, his first since the critically acclaimed A Lively Mind in 2006 and Bunkka in 2000, will veer down a decidedly chilled out path, making it an incredibly listenable album and not one solely crafted for the dance floor.
Paul Oakenfold is an influential force in dance music, consequently shaping the dance music scene itself. Voted World’s Best DJ and Best Trance DJ on multiple occasions, as well as being named Most Influential DJ of All Time by the Evening Standard, the veteran DJ-producer has an established career portfolio. Additionally, his imprint Perfecto Records has been one of the longest-running dance record labels, responsible for many dance hits from budding talent.
Not only has he made his mark in the dance music scene, but he has also entered the mainstream world, producing soundtracks and cues for Hollywood blockbuster movies – including Swordfish, Collateral, The Bourne Identity, Matrix Reloaded, and Shrek 2. His eclectic portfolio has given him opportunities to open for megastars like Madonna and U2, as well as to perform at unique locations such as Base Camp Mt. Everest, Stonehenge, The Great Wall Of China, and Area 51.
Luis Fonsi is most recognised for his work in ‘Despacito’ with Justin Bieber, which has collectively gained over 20 billion streams, making it the #1 most-watched video in the history of YouTube. Fonsi has established a Spotify fan base of 18 million monthly listeners, and he has 5 Latin Grammy Awards, 5 Billboard Music Awards, and 11 Billboard Latin Music Awards under his belt.
A remix package of ‘The World Can Wait’ will be released on 14 August, with remixes from Kilanova, John Askew, blklght, and Rafael Osmo x Spectral.
