Son Savage releases new single ‘Just Keep Dancing’
This song, like “Just Keep Dancing,” is a hybrid of funk, disco, and electronica. The River, which peaked at the top of the Anghami charts with over 1 million streams in 2021, was followed by the smash hit “Just Keep Dancing” in 2022. Produced by Sleiman Damien, who’s previously worked with Haifa Wehbe and Carole Samaha, this track features Son Savage.
The summer of 2022 is the perfect time for a three-minute pop song that lifts your spirits and brightens your mood.
As soon as the upbeat chords, fun synth hits, and cowbell kick in, “Just Keep Dancing” doesn’t let up until the song’s final breakdown. It’s all about being yourself, according to Charbel Ghanime, who goes by Son Savage in the music industry.
Is it any wonder that “Just Keep Dancing” serves as an anthem that celebrates people in all of their differences and quirks at a time when people are being judged for the way they love, pray, or look?
It’s no secret that Son Savage has a history of making radio-friendly pop songs. His 2021 hit “The River” pitted him against the likes of Amr Diab and Al Jasmi in the Egyptian music charts. After just a month, he had been placed on playlists by Spotify, Apple Music, and Anghami and had more than a million streams on all platforms across the region.
His new single, “Just Keep Dancing,” features a collaboration with Lebanese hit-maker/music producer Sleiman Damien, who has worked with Carole Samaha, Haifa Wehbe, and Assi Hallani.
As far back as I can remember, I’ve been a huge admirer of Sleiman’s work. For as long as I can remember, we have always had a mutual admiration for each other’s work. When I was recently in Dubai, I showed Sleiman some of the projects I was working on, and he was moved by the song ‘Just Keep Dancing.’ It’s all in the past!”
Serotonin and sunshine are released in a three-minute burst, designed to make you smile and get you moving. Good pop music is supposed to make you feel better. You may already know this, but Son Savage’s music videos are just as creative and entertaining.
Love Therapy and Superglue’s brilliant 8-bit music video were two of the most memorable moments from this year’s festival. This time around, Bilal Houssami, who directed the video for “The River,” will be behind the lens for “Just Keep Dancing.” I hope you enjoy the video as much as I did making it. ‘The River,’ ‘Love Therapy,’ ‘Superglue’ and ‘Just Keep Dancing,’ all featured songwriting and aesthetics, and the music video for ‘Just Keep Dancing,’ which features a fun and colorful cast, follows suit. Similarly to hatred, love and dance can be contagious,” the video demonstrates.
Son Savage’s story Singer and songwriter Charbel Ghanime is the creative force behind the Dubai-based musical project Son Savage (fka Belime). Along with Gosta Hulden (of Helena Paparizou fame), Jeffery David (of Echosmith), and Thomas Stengaard (of The Baseballs), he has written and co-written songs with some of the biggest names in music, including Gosta Hulden (of Helena Paparizou fame), Jeffery David (of Echosmith), and Thomas Stengaard (of The Baseballs). “TheRiver,” Ghanime’s first single as Son Savage, was released in August 2021. Later, The River became the highest charting non-Arabic song from any Middle Eastern artist, reaching #4 in the top chart of Anghami (beating out other notable artists such as Amr Diab and Hasan al Jazmi).
