ZEDD x MEDINA
The Electro-House Superstar and Denmark’s #1 Popstar Join Forces
Kicking off May with a bang, electronic-music guruZeddandDenmark’s #1 popstarMedinateam up to create the latest version of the Grammy award winning song,‘Clarity’. Released this pastFriday, May 2nd.
Following its debut release back in October of 2012, ‘Clarity’ has become recognized as a dance-music anthem around the globe. With previous remixes of the track released by industry heavyweights such as Tiesto, Headhunterz, Funkagenda, and Felix Cartal- Medina joins in with a stellar new version of her own.
Since her sophomore U.S. LP release, Forever, out on Ultra Music this past December; Medina has been busy creating new music for her ever growing American and international fan bases. Already named the most successful female artist in Denmark, Medina proved yet again there is no stopping her as her new single ‘Jalousi’ recently broke the Spotify record for most streams within the first week. With more than 700,000 streams on Spotify during its release week and 5.2 million as of now, Jalousi has obtained a double-platinum title.
In her new collaboration with Zedd, Medina continues to push her musical boundaries. Known for combining her edgy-electronic style with her flawless vocals, Medina creates music that is nothing short of danceable and electrifying.
Since her 2010 release, Velkommen til Medina (Welcome to Medina), Medina has ruled the Danish music scene as one of the top-selling female artists to date. But even though Denmark is the artist’s hometown as well as the primary market for Medina’s success (she has sold over 600,000 singles and 400,000 albums to date), it is by far not the only part of the world where she is known.
Medina, a pop artist with a dance and R&B influence, already has a large European following, she is Denmark’s biggest and most celebrated female artist, a multi-platinum selling performer, who has graced the cover of Elle magazine and has won multiple awards in her native Denmark, including the MTV Award for “Best Danish Act” for the last three years in a row, which is record breaking. She has also won the Fashion Icon Award in both 2010 and 2011, 8 Danish Music Awards(Equivalent to US Grammy) and more. There is an artistic depth to Medina that clearly separates her from most other female pop icons.
Medina is set to conquer the U.S. music charts with her forthcoming US debut album release for Ultra Music, “Forever” this November. Within five months of its European release, the album reached Gold status in Germany and her current summer tour is already sold out in Denmark.
Not only is Medina a highly successful pop artist, she is also the face of many established brands such as Reebok, Schweppes Lemon and Jewelry line Krantz & Ziegler. She has also appeared on the cover of Elle Denmark twice, along with other female and lifestyle magazine covers most recently Eurowoman, making her highly suitable for anything fashion-related. With her foot well in the fashion world door, there is undoubtedly more to come.
