A regular #1 artist on Beatport, Sammy Porter’s singles such as ‘Talking Like Friends’ and ‘Let Your Love’ have taken him to over 50 million career streams, 5 million video views and 2500 plays on UK radio. Now he teams up with Karen Harding for his new single ‘Celebrate’. Listen HERE.

Boasting punchy piano house keys, a dynamite drop and the not-so-secret weapon that is Karen’s Harding’s soaring soulful vocal gift, ‘Celebrate’ has everything it takes to become a crossover dance anthem. Not only does it look set to become Sammy’s biggest track to date, but it sees Karen Harding adding to an epic year in which she has featured on major tracks from Galantis, Shift K3y, Hook N Sling and Felix Cartal.

Sammy produced ‘Celebrate’, which he co-wrote with Rob Harvey, Charlotte Haining and Lewis Thompson. Frontman of The Music, Rob Harvey has also co-written two of Joel Corry’s smash hits, ‘Head & Heart’ (featuring MNEK) and ‘Lonely’.

Sammy says, “Never been so excited for a record to see the light of day. Being able collab with Karen Harding on a record is literally unreal and I'm so excited for it to come out sounding the way it does after keeping this under wraps for so long."

Karen adds, “We wrote ‘Celebrate’ up in Leeds and the chorus was inspired by a packet of Celebrations in Rob Harvey’s kitchen. We all got our best moves out and danced around! It was such a happy, feelgood vibe.”
