ALREADY #1 ON DANCE ALBUM CHART,
#2 ON DANCE SONG CHART - ITUNES CANADA
STREAM/SHARE Dion Todd ft. Maya - 'Be Alright'
Following the success of his 2018 Top 50 Billboard hit 'Remedy for Insanity', Canadian pop/dance recording artist Dion Todd returns with his new single 'Be Alright'. The track was released yesterday on all digital platforms as a 7-song EP featuring remixes by some of the world's hottest DJs/producers: Dirty Disco, DJ Strobe, Lenny Fontana, Perry Twins, Guy Scheiman, and StoneBridge and Damien Hall. In just 24 hours, the EP has already hit #1 on the iTunes Canada dance album chart, #2 on the dance song chart, and is currently at #3 album sales for all genres combined!
Although it's just getting its official release this week, 'Be Alright' has already been heating up the radio airwaves across Canada, including a premiere of the StoneBridge and Damien Hall remix on Sirius XM BPM on May 25th. A dance/pop gem with a breezy, laid back vibe, 'Be Alright', is ready to be your fave Song of the Summer for 2019.
"At first glance, 'Be Alright' sounds like a typical love song, but it actually has a much deeper meaning," says Dion. "We wanted to really hit home with a message far beyond a couples relationship, or the ups and downs we've all experienced at some point with someone we love. The true message is actually much more powerful. It’s about overcoming our differences between race, religion, politics, skin colour, shape or size of a person, looking beyond the superficial of what's on the outside, and focusing more about what's on the inside. Something we’ve lost given the effects of social media. I'm excited for the release of the music video soon which I think really captures the essence of the message."
With its early success at radio, 'Be Alright' seems poised to follow in the footsteps of Dion’s previous single 'Remedy for Insanity' (released October 2018) which landed on the Billboard Top 50 Dance Club Chart and topped the iTunes charts in Canada, hitting #1 on the iTunes Top 200 dance album sales chart. The single also hit the iTunes Top 200 dance sales charts in several countries including #10 in Belgium, #48 in the UK, #50 in France, #54 in the USA, and #56 in Germany.
Hit singles are nothing new to Dion Todd, who first gained success with hits including 'Maybe', 'Magic', and a 2005 remake of Corey Hart's megahit 'Never Surrender', all of which appeared on best-selling pop/dance compilation albums. After taking some time off to pursue an MBA at one of the world's most prestigious universities, MIT, Dion made his return to the music industry in 2017 with powerful dance ballad, 'Rocketship State of Mind', which was written and released to support a campaign to bring awareness to human trafficking and domestic abuse.
Dion Todd's new single 'Be Alright' is available now on Spotify, Apple Music/iTunes and other digital retailers and streaming services. For more information and the most up to date tour listings, please visit: diontodd.com
