Throwback Thursday: Martin Solveig & Dragonette – Hello

Throwing it all the way back to the year 2010, this is hands down one of the best songs to represent the style of pop house that was playing at the time. Martin Solveig highlighted this track as his lead single off the album “Smash” that released later on in 2011. This track not only hit #1 in the United States Dance Charts, but also the Netherlands, Mexico, Hungary, Austria and many other countries around the globe. Dragonette had just finished working with Kaskade, and continued on her career by following this track up with Don Diablo’s “Animale”!

Hopefully you enjoy this track like many others around the world, this is definitely one of the more well loved songs from that era of dance music.
