James Hype, Kim Petras’ “Drums” Samples A Justin Timberlake Hit



James Hype and Kim Petras‘ new song, titled “Drums, samples “Like I Love You,” one of Justin Timberlake‘s most recognizable classics. Also, the accompanying visuals capture unforgettable moments from a recent music festival.

“Drums” is a song that originated as an instrumental track called “Everybody Dance” in 2019. James Hype initially played this instrumental in his DJ sets. His fan base, known as the Hypefam, heard it and not only urged him to release it but also renamed it “Drums” on their own.

Without a doubt, this suggests that the fans felt a strong connection to this banger and played a role in shaping its identity. Besides that, “Drums” is a product of creative collaboration involving the input of his studio partners too.

Kim Petras

In 2023, James Hype crossed paths with Kim Petras in the vibrant city of LA. Eventually, they collaborated closely to craft the rendition of “Drums” that now graces your ears.

What makes this encounter even more remarkable is the endorsement they received from none other than Justin Timberlake himself, who allowed them to preserve his original vocals in the recording. Of course, this approval has added a profound layer of significance to the entire composition.
