Avicii and Nicky Romero’s collaboration with “I could be the one” turns ten
When you think of iconic and timeless electronic music collaborations, the one that should be on everyone’s top five list is’I could be the one‘by none other than the end Avicii and Nicky romero. Although Avicii has passed away, his music continues to transcend and grow – a prime example of his respect and love – and this track is one of them, and this week we’re celebrating it as it turns ten already.
With the voice of the Swedish singer Noonie Bao, it is these same voices associated with this sweet melody that threaten to pull on the sensitive chords, even ten years later and perhaps even more moving now than the day of its release. Nationally in Sweden and internationally around the world, including places such as the UK, Belgium, the Netherlands, New Zealand and many other places, it has topped the charts and dominated the radio stations because no one could quite understand that the melody had on everyone. It was first performed by Avicii in November 2011 at Super shine event in DC Armory, Washington, where soon after he was nicknamed “Nicktim”. A year after this first piece which tested the reaction of crowds, the vocal version was created through the LE7ELS podcast and also on Protocol radio shortly after that. It’s hard to imagine that it was once an expected piece of ID, with fans wondering when it would have seen the light of day, and not the timeless classic we all know today.
Speaking of the recent anniversary, Nicky Romero took to Instagram, along with other producers like Tiësto comment to express their love for the track, to say:
“I could be the one to turn 10 today, a record that changed my life, my career and my outlook on music. I wish you were there to celebrate @avicii ❤️ grateful every day ”
In May, Nicky Romero uploaded a YouTube video detailing the story of “I could be the one” and you can watch it below after you air the track. here once again.
