“Dying for You” picks up where “Next to Me” left off, which currently has streamed more than 50 million times on Spotify. This second single, also signed to Big Beat Records continues to showcase where the Swedish sensation is pushing beyond his own comfort zones within his craft. Calling upon the talents of American violinist star Lindsay Stirling, ”Dying for You” (which also features Alex Aris) blends Otto’s signature melodic dance sound with Stirling’s renowned instrumental skills. The track is one of the peppier tunes from Otto Knows so far over his career. The three-person collaboration brings together the talents of each artist in their own unique way. The track forges an emotionally charged landmark in the young Swede’s already impressive discography.
In 2015 Otto had more than 150 million streams internationally. The Stockholm based Otto Jettman garnered triple platinum status in Sweden and gold in all Nordic countries for “Next to Me.” He was also nominated for a Swedish Grammy. That summer Otto announced his signing to At Night Management, in a co-deal alongside Sebastian Ingrosso.
Otto was propelled into the spotlight in 2012 with his breakthrough hit, “Million Voices,” Otto would go on to co-write and produce Britney Spears’ comeback hit, “Work Bitch.” This was an early indicator of the direction dance music was heading. Cheryl Cole’s “Parachute” and Bebe Rexha’s “Can’t Stop Drinking About You” in 2014 continued to highlight Otto’s unique place in electronic music, paving the way for more quality dance music with mass appeal.
