Prince Fox & Quinn XCII

Dim Mak is lookin' like a good home for Prince Fox. It's the label that released “Just Call” (Prince Fox's collaboration with Bella Thorne), and it's the place that's giving him plenty of “Space” to work on his signature sound with his latest single, a team-up with Detroit multi-genre vocalist Quinn XCII.

"The song came about super organically," Prince Fox tells Billboard. "I had written parts of it previously with Stephen Puth. When the first demo was done, Quinn and I had just followed each other on Twitter. I then reached out to him and sent him the record, and we finished the second half together."

"Space" fits right into contemporary radio, but still packs a surprising punch. It's got something so cocky in it rhythm and it's choppy hook, and Quinn is perfectly cool with his devil-may-care falsetto.

"Working with Prince Fox was extremely collaborative and effortless," Quinn XCII adds. "This is the first feature I've done in a long time, so it was really fun going in a different direction and having the opportunity to bring some of my own style into that world too."

"Space" a breakup anthem with a rebel edge, a song for all the times we said we didn't care when it hurt to walk away.

"I think the song is really relatable,” Prince Fox says. “Everyone's been told at one point or another by a SO [significant other] that they need some 'space.' It's a tough thing to hear. You have this person in your life that loomed so large, and then you just kind of have to fade out of each other's lives."

Being dumped is never easy, but jamming to “Space” will give you the strength you need to stunt on lurking exes in the Gram. It's out now on Dim Mak. Check it out below.
