"This one needs to be a duet," the late Avicii told his co-producers in a text message while working on a new track just before his untimely death. "Coolest thing would be a real couple. Or a couple that have worked together enough to be almost considered a couple!"
And so Swedish duo Vargas & Lagola made sure to honor their old friend's "wish."
"Tough Love," the second single to be released off the DJ superstar's upcoming posthumous album TIM, features vocals from Vargas and her wife Agnes, who is also a Swedish artist.
The track incorporates Indian influences into the sound, and proves yet again how much of a melodic genius Avicii was. Do yourself a favor and listen to "Tough Love" below.
In addition to "Tough Love," the previously released single "SOS" featuring Aloe Blacc will also appear on the new record, which is slated for release sometime in 2019.
