I Don’t Like You
Eva Simons is an unstoppable badass on her way to being the next big name in dance music. Eva originally came to the world’s attention as the vocalist and face of Afrojack’s monster 2011 hit “Take Over Control,” which proclaimed her desire to be dominated — while dancing in a cheerleader costume atop a dusty school bus parked on California’s Interstate 5. Her mountain-high mohawk and stunning beauty have made her a recognizable artist on her own. “I Don’t Like You” is the lead single off her forthcoming solo album and a proclamation that she intends to be more Rihanna and less Selena Gomez. The lyrics explore an interesting dynamic: Falling out of love with someone is one thing, but not to like him, period, is something else altogether. It goes beyond not being an appropriate partner; it declares that he isn’t a good person. If that sounds familiar, here’s your new personal anthem. The video takes a very aggressive approach to this revelation: Eva breaks into her cheating boyfriend’s apartment and trashes it, including the dog, which gets a special haircut. Over the top? Probably. But she looks amazing doing it. With remixes by Nicky Romero, Fred Falke, R3hab and Nick Thayer, this has the potential to be a major radio hit.
