Niko Moon’s remix of “GOOD TIME” with Reggae singer, Shaggy is available now on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new track.
NYCountry Swag 2021 Artist to Watch Niko Moon has released a new version of his Top 10 debut single “GOOD TIME” featuring GRAMMY Award-winning artist, Shaggy. While the original version of the gold-certified track nears the top 5 at country radio and has already gained more than 157 million on-demand streams since it’s release, the remix offers a refreshing twist on an already chill song.
“Something bout a night this clear / makes your problems dissapear / so we just gonna stay right here and let the world go by / we just tryna catch a good time / even if it takes all night / pass that bottle round the campfire / sippin apple pie moonshine / tryna catch a good time”
The song is a summer anthem, and if you know Niko Moon at all, a Reggae remix is the perfect match for his contagiously positive vibes. While “GOOD TIME” was the song to catapult his career as an artist, songs like “Paradise to Me”, “Way Back”, “Good at Loving You”, and “Dance with Me” give off the same infectious energy. Even “Drunk Over You”, a song about drinking away a break-up, disguises itself as a song that makes you want to dance behind its upbeat tune.
This remix slows things down with classic Reggae undertones as Shaggy adds his back-up vocals and own verse.
“Early morning up the sun is climbing / chillin on the beach is how I like it / paradise is how I would describe it / overwhelmed with joy and I can’t hide it / living it easy, easy living it all”
While Niko Moon may be a new face, his songs have been around for years in several musical genres. He has written dozens of songs for Zac Brown Band including hits like “Homegrown”, “Keep me in Mind”, “Loving You Easy”, “Beautiful Drug”, “Somebody I Used to Know”, “Roots”, “Family Table” and “My Old Man”. Additionally, he’s penned familiar tracks like Dierks Bentley’s “Gone” and Rascal Flatts’ “Back to Life”. Moon also wrote the #1 rock song “Heavy is the Head” and Avicii’s “Broken Arrows”.
Before tours were forced to cancel, Moon was on the Platonic Tour with Ryan Hurd. They played two nights at the Gramercy Theatre in NYC in what ended up being two of the last shows of the tour just before the COVID-19 pandemic forced shows across the nation to cancel.
