WATCH THE OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO HERE:
lobal sensation Alesso joins forces with renowned multiple GRAMMY nominated global superstar Ty Dolla $ign for the hotly anticipated “Caught a Body.” With bruising percussion and alluring production reminiscent of ’90s house music, the track is a bold statement from both artists. The record serves a testament to their instincts as creators and collaborators whose music demands movement. Instantly catchy and endlessly danceable, Ty Dolla $ign gives a dynamic twist to Alesso’s hypnotic dance beats, resulting in one of the most iconic collaborations of the year.
“My boy Alesso is one of the biggest DJs in the world so I’m honored that he asked me to be a part of this song. We definitely made some party shit for the summer!” – Ty Dolla $ign
“This song has been a favorite of mine for the past few months” says Alesso on the record. “It’s something new for me and my sound which is exciting! I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do.”
Almost a year in the making, Alesso and Ty Dolla $ign first teased that a collaboration was on the way via social media before teasing the record for the first time at ULTRA Miami (watch Alesso’s full headlining set HERE). With the release of “Caught a Body,” Alesso ushers in a new era – taking the sort of approach that will undeniably continue blurring borders and bringing people together. The anthemic dance floor-filler is Alesso’s first offering of 2023, following his addictive collaboration with Sick Individuals, “We Go Out,” last fall. That release arrived just weeks after an EP of “Words” remixes, his crossover smash with pop star Zara Larsson that amassed more than 235 million global streams and hit number 1 on U.S. dance radio.
A global maverick in the dance world, Alesso has repeatedly proven that his influence transcends boundaries and crosses over into countless genres — to that end, he’s collaborated with such eclectic artists as OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, Calvin Harris, Tove Lo, Liam Payne, James Bay, Marshmello, Swedish House Mafia’s Sebastian Ingrosso, Hailee Steinfeld, Florida Georgia Line, Anitta, and more. With his past hits including the platinum-certified “If I Lose Myself” and gold-certified “Under Control,” the Swedish native has also found major success with “Calling (Lose My Mind),” which topped the Billboard US Hot Dance Club Songs chart. On Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, his massive breakup anthem “Let Me Go” — a collaboration with Hailee Steinfeld and Florida Georgia Line — reached No. 9, while “Is That For Me” peaked at No. 25.
In 2020, Alesso released a pair of hit singles: “Midnight,” featuring former One Direction member Liam Payne, and “THE END” with goth-pop singer/songwriter Charlotte Lawrence. He also had an explosive 2021, releasing a slew of records: kicking off with his East Asia fueled “Going Dumb (with Stray Kids & CORSAK),” he later closed the chapter to his PROGRESSO series with PROGRESSO VOL 2. Alesso next delivered his cosmic love ballad “Chasing Stars (with Marshmello feat. James Bay),” the dynamic “Rescue Me (with Danna Paola)” from the Blade Runner Black Lotus soundtrack, and his highly-anticipated winter floor-filler “Somebody To Use.” To cap off a monumental year, he made his NFT debut with the Cosmic Genesis collection and then ended 2021 on a bang with “When I’m Gone” — his colossal collaboration with Katy Perry (now RIAA Gold certified). To date, Alesso has performed at international festivals ranging from Tomorrowland to Ultra Music Festival to Electric Daisy Carnival, with his national TV experience including closing out GMA’s Summer Concert Series, performing on “The Late Show with James Corden,” taking the stage at the AMAs and making his “Saturday Night Live” debut in January 2022 with Katy Perry.
