London-based producer and songwriter Tieks gets support from music legend Chaka Khan and Jamaican reggae artist Popcaan for his inspirational/EDM single “Say a Prayer.”
On the follow-up to his 2015 hit ‘Sunshine,’ Tieks uses chimes to create an uplifting melody and soul-rich gospel sound backed by smooth vocals from Chaka Khan and Popcaan. The ending result is an uplifting song with a highly emotive feel.
Chaka Khan has won ten Grammys and has sold an estimated 70 million records worldwide in a career spanning five decades. In December 2016, Billboard magazine ranked her as the 65th most successful dance artist of all time.
Popcaan (AKA Andre Hugh Sutherland) is a Jamaican DJ, singer and songwriter signed to Mixpak Records. One of Jamaica’s most successful dancehall artists, known for singles ‘Love Yuh Bad’ and ‘Ova Dweet’, Popcaan has also collaborated with a number of artists, including Drake, Jamie XX, Pusha T, and Gorillaz.
TIEKS has established himself as a talent to watch. The London-based producer/songwriter has worked with Florence & The Machine, Duke Dumont, Ben Khan and Jess Glynne and has produced remixes for Tory Lanez and Years & Years among others.
‘Say a Prayer’ is available today.
