PUBG celebrated its third anniversary by partnering up with Alesso, Lost Frequencies and R3HAB for an unprecedented livestream party both in-game and on YouTube. The celebrations saw each artist put on a show with a set followed by them engaging with the fans through competing in the game against some of the best players in the gaming community. They also each premiered a new song during their performances. Alesso’s collaboration with CORSAK and Stray Kids, ‘Going Dumb’, charted at #1 on iTunes in fifty countries. PUBG has a large following of avid gamers and music fans alike with these collaborations, which no doubt helped skyrocket the song to the top of the charts.
You can check out the full PUBG Mobile 3rd Anniversary Party livestream below.
Two versions of the song were released. One version had the Chinese singer CORSAK, and the other had the South Korean boy band Stray Kids. Although the different singers bring their own element to the track, both versions share the same feel and essence of the song. The songs open with deep house influenced vocals leading the way over a minimalistic production with drums and chords building up the tension. The chorus comes in next with a chopped vocal top line that has Alesso’s signature melodic style all over it. The different vocals work well with Alesso’s incredibly addictive production making this a song that we would like to have on repeat.
Along with Alesso releasing ‘Going Dumb’, Lost Frequencies premiered ‘Rise’ and R3HAB dropped ‘Stars Align’ as new singles on the virtual stage. As PUBG remains one of the global leaders in the gaming industry with added new features for easier in-game streaming and shows, one can expect more electronic dance music artists joining forces with the gaming franchise.
