New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Multi-platinum producer DJ Snake
has released his highly anticipated sophomore album, Carte Blanche. Available now via all digital retailers,Carte Blanche
includes appearances by such heavy-hitters as Cardi B, Offset, J. Balvin, Sean Paul, and more.
features the double-platinum single "Taki Taki
" ft. Selena
& Cardi B
- the second global #1 record for DJ Snake. After premiering in September, "Taki Taki
" became the ninth-fastest music video of all time to amass 100 million views on YouTube. With its video now at over 1.4 billion views, the track also hit #1 on the US Hot Latin Songs chart and #11 on the Billboard Hot 100.
With its title translating to "the freedom to do whatever one chooses," Carte Blanche
finds DJ Snake
fully embodying that spirit by breaking all musical and creative boundaries. A native of Paris, he names his country's cultural melting pot — as well as his worldwide travels in recent years - as a key inspiration in bringing the genre-defying sound of Carte Blanche
to life in an album which sounds like Summer.
The journey of this second chapter began when he played atop the roof of the Arc De Triomphe, so it was fitting the artwork for Carte Blanche
features images of the iconic Arc De Triomphe (a global symbol of freedom and liberty).
In addition to "Taki Taki," Carte Blanche
includes hits like "Enzo" (a collaboration with Sheck Wes, featuring Offset, 21 Savage
& Gucci Mane), the India-inspired club smash "Magenta Riddim," and the bilingual summer anthem "Loco Contigo
" (with J. Balvin & Tyga). Released last month, "Loco Contigo
" is accompanied by a wildly colorful video from Colin Tilley (an award-winning filmmaker known for his work with Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, and Nicki Minaj).
New tracks include features with Burna Boy, the rising African born star most recently included in the Lion King Album and winner of the Breakthrough Act at the BET Awards, Bryson Tiller, OVO stars Majid Jordan, Brazlian Star Anitta, Sean Paul
and legends from the electronic genre Zhu, Zomboy and Eptic.
QUOTE FROM SNAKE : 'Carte Blanche
for me means Freedom to do whatever you want. And that's how I work. No formula to follow. I wanted to make a summer album with a mixtape feel, of all the sounds I want to hear in summer and I went to artists I knew could do exactly that'
