Don Diablo Drops New Radio-Friendly Jam "Congratulations"

Have you ever been feeling down on your luck and needed some encouragement? It happens to all of us, including world class producers like Don Diablo. It’s easy to get caught up in the daily grind and lose sight of the bigger picture. Thankfully, Don has come up with the perfect track to combat those feelings of doubt. “Congratulations” with Brando is a slick and sultry pop/R&B/house tune that showcases Don’s production talents. This is much more of a radio or club track than the Hexagon head-honcho’s usual festival-ready fare.

Dance music fans probably recognize Brando from his vocals on Loud Luxury’s smash hit “Body.” He brings that same emotional and deep feel to this song that helped make “Body” such a huge hit. From the rhythmic bassline, powerful vocals, crisp and clean production work, not only is this an immaculate club jam, it’s also perfect for throwing on the radio too. Although the track doesn’t have those usual high flying Don Diablo synths, you can definitely still feel his imprint on this wonderful track.

Here’s what Don had to say about creating “Congratulations.”

“I wrote ‘Congratulations’ in a moment of reflection while I was recording parts of my upcoming ‘FOREVER’ album in Los Angeles. Most of my life, I have been working every single day towards an invisible goal that sometimes seems unreachable. There are days when nothing you do seems good enough and the weight on your shoulders gets heavier and heavier. Sometimes you need to look at your life from a helicopter view so you can see all the amazing things that have happened in your past. It will make you enjoy your future even more. This song is about congratulating yourself, which, in essence, is something you should be doing as often as you can. I am super excited I got to work on the song with the supremely talented Brando, whose vocals are the perfect fit for the story I wanted to tell.”

Check out Don Diablo’s latest single “Congratulations” featuring Brando out now on Hexagon.

[Lyrics]
Dreaming, dreaming bout the days that were good
Take me, take me back to music in my room

All my life I’ve been searching
Looking for something perfect
That only lead me back to blue

Might be a little broken
But I’ve got my eyes wide open
I’m gonna say it til it’s true

Lately I’ve been stable
I don’t need no label
Fuck congratulations
No more expectations

Don’t care bout my FOMO
I’ve been riding solo
So congratulations
So congratulations

Daily, daily I’ve been reaching for the stars
Made it, made it but I only got so far

All my life I’ve been searching
Looking for something perfect
That only lead me back to blue

Might be a little broken
But I’ve got my eyes wide open
I’m gonna say it til it’s true

Lately I’ve been stable
I don’t need no label
Fuck congratulations
No more expectations

Don’t care bout my FOMO
I’ve been riding solo
So congratulations
So congratulations

Can’t do this over again and over again and over again
I know it’s hard to admit, it’s hard to admit, it’s hard to admit
It’s half quarter past 10, I wanna give in, I wanna give in
Can’t do this over again and over again

Lately I’ve been stable
I don’t need no label
Fuck congratulations
No more expectations

Don’t care bout my FOMO
I’ve been riding solo
So congratulations
So congratulations

Lately I’ve been stable
I don’t need no label
Fuck congratulations
No more expectations

Don’t care bout my FOMO
I’ve been riding solo
So congratulations
So congratulations
