Tropical vibes are a dime a dozen in today's dance music world, but Akon? That's a voice you just don't hear every day anymore.

Sam Feldt knows how to make an impression. He tapped the legendary hip-hop singer for his latest single "YES." It's summery and sexual, catchy and laid-back. Bright synths play like horns over the bouncing rhythm.

The official music video plays on these colorful vibes with a bunch of cute ladies and body paint, all of whom look pretty psyched to be dancing around with Akon. Directed by Deni Kukura, it's supposed to fill the viewer with overwhelming feelings of joy. Smiles are contagious, after all.

"YES" is the lead single from Feldt's upcoming debut album Sunrise. It's scheduled for release Friday, Oct. 6 on Spinnin Records. Listen to "YES" and watch the official music video below.
