Two months after the release of Martin Garrix and Dua Lipa’s major collaboration, “Scared To Be Lonely,” the pair release the first remix package of the hit single, Scared To Be Lonely – The Remixes Vol. 1 available today at all digital service providers.
Martin Garrix and Dua Lipa also announce today that they will be performing “Scared To Be Lonely” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on March 22nd, marking their television debut performance.
Scared to Be Lonely – The Remixes Vol 1. features stellar reworked treatments of this massive track from Brooks, DubVision, Zonderling, Alpharock, Funkin Matt and Julien Earle.
Released on January 27th, the collaboration between electronic dance music’s youngest superstar and ground-breaking female artist star Dua Lipa, has earned the duo widespread critical claim and has currently seen them rack up over 130 million streams on Spotify alone – and counting. TIME calls the track “a thoughtful electro ballad that morphs into a slow-burning banger…” while The FADER describes it as “Dramatic EDM banger…” and Billboard raves, “Sparse percussion lightly leads the tune toward the simple but majestic hook. Garrix is still playing with those future bass sounds…while the beat moves in and out of trap vibes.”
The hard work and dedication has certainly payed off for both Martin Garrix and Dua Lipa. As the world’s #1 DJ, in the last year Martin has won two MTV European Awards, made Billboard’s ’21 Under 21’ List for the third time and rank in the Forbes ’30 Under 30’ List for a second.
Following his performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Martin will be heading to Miami for Music Week where he will be playing LIV Miami and Ultra Music Festival. This is only the start of a summer packed with shows including Lollapalooza, Coachella and his Ibiza residencies at Hï and Ushuaïa.

ABOUT MARTIN GARRIX:
It’s easy to get lost in the numbers behind Martin Garrix’s meteoric rise – the 20 year old Dutch superstar has already set precedents and scored landmarks at every corner of the music industry. Backed by Scooter Braun Projects, Martin has become one of electronic dance music’s youngest superstars, with his 2013 release of his smash hit “Animals” topping the charts in late 2013 at the age of 17. Just three years later, he was voted #1 on 2016’s DJ Mag Top 100 Poll. The young producer has made both Billboard’s prestigious “21 Under 21” 3 times, as well as Forbes’ “30 Under 30” list twice. Last month, Garrix won two 2016 MTV European Music Awards for Best Electronic and Best Worldstage Performance, cementing his stature as a cross over artist to be reckoned with. In 2015, Garrix won two MTV European Music Awards for Best Electronic Act for Best Dutch Act. IN 2016, Garrix signed a global deal with Sony Music International marking his ascent into the highest reaches of the music industry. His first single for RCA/Sony Music Intl, “In The Name Of Love” featuring Bebe Rexha, amassed over half a billion streams in just 3 months and has become a massive hit worldwide. Garrix remixed of one the biggest pop singles of recent years, The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face,” and has collaborated with Usher (“Don’t Look Down”) and Ed Sheeran (“Rewind Repeat It”). Garrix has residencies at two of world’s most prestigious clubs: Omnia Las Vegas and Ushuaïa Ibiza, and in addition, hosts his own evening every Friday during the summer at Ushuaïa Ibiza called “Multiply” with special guests such as A-Trak, The Chainsmokers, Marshmello, Dillon Francis, and many more. Garrix has also collaborated with world renowned brands such as 7UP and Tag Heuer.
