The hit factory known as Stargate has released their latest collaboration. The Norwegian production duo have teamed up with popstars Sia and P!nk for a new song called “Waterfall.” With a loping Latin beat and shimmering synth, it looks like Stargate may have another hit on their hands. Diplo, Jr. Blender and Sia also have credits on the song. You can check out “Waterfall” above.
Stargate’s resume is impressive. As Pitchfork pointed out, Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Storleer Eriksen have been involved with 10 Billboard #1 songs, including Beyoncé’s “Irreplaceable,” Rihanna’s “Rude Boy" and Katy Perry’s “Firework.” “Irreplaceable” alone topped the Billboard Hot 100 for 10 consecutive weeks.
The group broke into the U.S. in 2006 with their #1 single “So Sick” performed by Ne-Yo. Stargate has received two Grammy for their work on Ne-Yo’s 2008 hit “Miss Independent” and Rihanna’s 2010 track “Only Girl (In The World).” The duo is perhaps best known for their work with Rihanna, having produced four #1 singles for the singer including “What’s My Name” and “S&M.” Although “Waterfall” is Stargate’s first collaboration with P!nk, the duo did work with Sia in the past to produce the track “Try Everything” for the Disney Movie “Zootopia.”
