Watch Afrojack Bring the Dance Party With 'Hey' Featuring Fais & 'Gone' to the 2016 MTV EMAs
The 2016 MTV Europe Music Awards became a homecoming show of sorts for Afrojack -- who "grew up 20 minutes from here," according to host Bebe Rexha -- on Sunday (Nov. 6) in Rotterdam, Netherlands. The global EDM phenom rolled through the dancefloor-ready track "Hey" with Dutch DJ/producer, Fais, and "Gone" featuring collaborator Ty Dolla $ign on the Jumbo screen.
In a September interview with Billboard, Afrojack spoke about evolving his sound for the Dolla $ign-assisted gem, a fusion of R&B and electronic dance.
“I’ve been doing EDM for such a long time and using hip-hop sounds,” he explained. “I thought, wait, let me make a hip-hop song using EDM sounds. It was a new challenge for me.”
