Robbie Rivera & Allen Wish Put Their Touch on “Girlfriend”

Robbie Rivera & Allen Wish

Robbie Rivera’s 2003 hit “Girlfriend” has stood the test of time and now it’s getting some remix action with Allen Wish!

Miami house legend and Juicy Music boss Robbie Rivera teams up with the brilliant LA-based artist Allen Wish to give the iconic track “Girlfriend” a facelift. This tune made massive waves when it was released back in 2003, filling the air space with lighthearted vibrations and flirty vocals from trance icon Justine Suissa who made everyone swoon.

Since its release, “Girlfriend” has become a remix target on multiple occasions, notably in 2008 from Robbie Rivera and then in 2013 from Frank Caro & Alemany. Here we are in 2021 and Allen Wish is the perfect choice when it comes to breathing new life into the track. Having previously touched up tunes from Bob Sinclar and Galantis, while also delivering originals like “Setting Sun” and “Higher” last year, he’s proven he has the goods to get us grooving and knocked it out of the park with this new cut.

I’ve been a fan of Robbie’s career for a long time. We’ve been in touch, sending music and back and forth, and one day I thought I’ll like to rework one of his biggest tracks. I initially proposed to Robbie we reimagine Back To Zero, but after having a chat with him, we ended up reimagining Girlfriend instead. The vocal already had that feeling of nostalgia deep down and I loved that, we just followed that feeling and added more depth to it.

The new version of “Girlfriend” soars us to the moon right out of the gate. There is a deep simmer felt between the sexy vocal and future-forward instrumental detail that fuels anticipation for the rest of the track. What I love is how the journey builds and teases. Each and every profound sound wave pulls me in a little bit more and by the time the final cosmic siren makes its appearance, I realize that I have been holding my breath the entire time. I am on the edge of my seat, totally engrossed in the out of body experience. And now, it’s your turn to feel the vibe!

I am very excited to bring back this beautiful song I produced when my hair was not white! Justine Suissa’s sweet vocals always bring a smile to fans when I play the original.  This new remix with Allen Wish is just so good! New arrangement and synth sounds take the tune to the next level and I can’t wait to get new fans with this remix.
