This will be the next tropical house cover to get big then. Even has Dakota from Fast Car on it.

T-Pain tho *_*

decent tune.

I actually cannot see this doing anything at all. Good to hear Dakota again but I feel like the production is messy for the song and T-Pain is completely pointless laugh.gif

I love the original of this song and whilst this isn't as good, I do actually rather like it, it's fresh and I do like Dakota's vocals! Wouldn't mind this blowing up at all.

It is reminds me of the various dance covers of late 2002-early 03 by the likes of DJ Sammy/Soda Club etc. where an old ballad was covered and speeded up into a rather cheesy sounding dance song.

This is actually very good though, more lively than most tropical house songs (although I don't really like how the song slows down when T-Pain comes in), much better than 'Fast Car' anyway and I wouldn't mind this being a hit.

This is a nice cover! Dakota's vocals really suit this sound, thought the T-Pain part wouldn't work but at worst it's just a tad unnecessary.

Not expecting anything for it but I'd take this as the next surprise low charting dance hit.

I wouldn't say it was completely tropical house, the violins in it in the chorus make it a bit like the Shapeshifters/Clean Bandit type orchestral/funky house too, which is probably why I like it!

I like the fact there are lots of different types of instrumentation and that it isn't minimal like most tropical house songs. I don't find it messy.

I like this! Just recently came across another cover of 'Dreams' from about a year ago that I'd also recommend:

Does sound like a hit in the making. I guess having Dakota on it will increase it's reach.

It is really like a modern DJ Sammy - Boys of Summer - a great uplifting summery sounding if rather cheesy dance cover of a classic song!
