An Eastern European dance hit that we can’t get enough of, INNA and The Victor join forces for this new single and music video, titled “Dance Alone”. A Romania and Kosovo link-up, INNA has once again collaborated with a rising star from another country, truly bringing dance music to the entire world. The release of this track follows the remix EP of INNA’s collaboration with R3HAB and SASH! titled “Rock My Body” and the remix version of The Victor’s collaboration with Rina titled “Ça Je”.

Written by Alex Cotoi, Elena Alexandra Apostoleanu (INNA), Marcel Botezan, Sebastian Barac, and Wayne Hector, whilst it has been produced by Marcel Botezan, Sebastian Barac, and Alex Cotoi, “Dance Alone” is a trance-induced dance track that perfectly implements INNA and The Victor’s vocal styles. Addictive throughout, the laser-wave beats take centre stage, wrapping effortlessly around both these artists’ voices.

Sonically inducing, INNA and The Victor’s voices are brilliantly paired bringing the same vocal level, making this the perfect matchup. Their interpolated voices synergise effortlessly, with them swapping from female vocals to male vocals and back again, allowing them to tell the story of the lyrics. The words delve into missing their partner when they go away, and so they would rather dance alone than with anybody else because no one else is suitable.

This heartfelt and passionate song deeply resonates with both artists. Given their demanding schedules as singers, it’s no secret that INNA’s global tours and her partner Deliric’s international rap career often lead to extended periods apart. It’s safe to say they’ve mastered the art of navigating the challenges of long-distance relationships. When INNA sings this song, it’s natural to envision her drawing inspiration from her experiences with Deliric.

As for The Victor, his relationship status remains a mystery – there’s no sign of a partner on his Instagram, which might suggest he’s single. However, the heartfelt and resonant delivery of this song by The Victor clearly indicates a personal connection to the lyrics. It’s evident that he has experienced similar emotions at some point, perhaps even stirred by moments of homesickness.

Now, we have to have to have to mention the incredible production of this track. Marco & Seba & SICKOTOY (Marcel Botezan, Sebastian Barac, and Alex Cotoi) have done a flawless job. The backing beat is faultless, the dance drop is gorgeous, the rhythm is top level, the melody is absolute fire, and the addition of vocalise from The Victor just adds flavour. Then you’ve got INNA’s sultry vocals full of passion and heart showcasing her 15+ years of experience, then The Victor parallels with his vocals, and we’re left with this awesome dance tune that’s like no other and is set to lead the way as winter festivities blunder in.

This is one of those songs that will either be a treasured fan-favourite that doesn’t get the credit it oh so deserves (much like many of INNA’s promotional releases – yes, we’re looking at “Nobody” and “Say It With Your Body”), or it’s one that DJs are going to pick up, remix the house down, deliver across DJ sets at events and festivals, and then a brilliant remix EP is released. We’re so hoping for the latter.

There’s more to this track though, as INNA and The Victor have dropped a music video which has been directed by Jimachez who also acted as Director of Photography with Andrei Radulescu handling the editing – he also colour-graded Alexandra Stan’s “Bine cu puțin rău“. The visual is a pure performance video with both artists performing on a white set, individually. The segments are interpolated alongside the vocals, allowing them to showcase their passion for this track.

Both artists take the spotlight throughout the number. INNA flirts with the camera, bringing careless sexiness and sultriness, with her black trench coat and underwear. She may have 15+ years in the music industry, but she certainly looks just as good as she ever did – we all remember her “Amazing” and “Sun Is Up” music videos and her body is still just as hot (an intended pun nod to her debut single “Hot”). Continuing to be a natural in front of the camera she expresses the song through freestyle movement that makes the audience believe everything she’s singing.

As for The Victor, he starts off by wearing a jumper under an oversized jacket with supersized pockets and matching trousers, accessorised with a necklace and some shades, surrounded by microphones – this is the first time many INNA fans have come across him, and he manages to make a brilliant statement from the get-go. He later transitions into a diamond-patterned oversized shirt with matching trousers and a white t-shirt, still sporting his shades. He lets his vocals do most of the work, but he personifies the vocalise with a rhythmic step and vibe to his movements.
