It's been a long time since there has been anything to write about on Planet Salem, but thanks to top Swedish DJ and producer Avicii, that's all about to change. For "You Make Me", the song co-written by Avicii, Salem and another one of my favourite Swedish artists Vincent Pontare, is going to be the follow-up single to Avicii's worldwide smash hit song of this summer, "Wake Me Up" which featured the vocals of Aloe Blacc. So you can expect to hear Salem's voice on the radio, all over the world!
"You Make Me" has of course been around the internet for some time - the title was originally thought to be "Someone Like You" or "All My Life". The song will probably not be as big a crossover hit as "Wake Me Up" although it is still very accessible and as Avicii's popularity has soared over recent months, it is guaranteed a place on radio playlists.
I just wish that Avicii would credit his guest vocalists more, but it is just great to know that he is still making music, even in collaboration with other artists. Although Salem had previously collaborated with Avicii on "Silhouettes" (which really deserved to be more successful than it was), "You Make Me" will really make people sit up and take notice of Salem's musical talent.
