Song captures the top stop at rhythmic radio
Multi-Platinum superstar Coi Leray links up with two-time Grammy Award-winning international icon David Guetta for a new remix of her chart-dominating smash “Players” out now via Uptown Records/Republic Records. It notably marks their first collaboration together and follows the “Players (DJ Smallz 732 Jersey Club Remix)” and “Players (DJ Saige Remix).”
Guetta energizes “Players” with festival-ready bombast. He accents the original with slick synths and propulsive percussion, amplifying the drop as Leray’s attitude-laden hook rings out. It has all the ingredients of the ultimate dance floor banger equally suited to pool parties in Las Vegas and Ibiza or the polo fields of Coachella.
Continuing its dominance, “Players” vaulted to No. 1 on the Rhythmic Radio chart and climbed into the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100, capturing No. 16.
