Embracing and expressing love for people of different backgrounds is a powerful symbol of strength during such a difficult social and medical time. Versatile musician, Adam Davenport recently released the video for his latest single, ‘Feels Like Tonight,’ which features an interracial love story that’s set to dance against the empty COVID streets of Saint Petersburg, Russia.
‘Feels Like Tonight,’ which is the singer’s seventh studio single, was produced by Italian label Distar Records. The tropical house pop ballad also features soulful vocal from newcomer, Tye Ellen. The duet has already been recognized by Shazam/Apple Music on their Best New Music playlist, alongside Billie Eilish, Tiesto, Ty Dollar $ign, Jason Derulo and Tim McGraw.
Davenport discovered Ellen on Instagram while he watched her 100 Day Songwriting Challenge, in which she posted a new song she wrote every day for 14 weeks. The two musicians co-wrote the track together, and were inspired by the songwriting on ’70s tunes from such singers as Chaka Khan & Rufus, Sister Sledge and Ashford & Simpsons.
Davenport, a New Yorker whose last five productions have been released on labels in Europe, is currently teaching acting in Belgrade, Serbia. He most recently appeared on RTS, the top-rated morning show on Serbian national television, where he premiered the music video for ‘Feels Like Tonight.’
Davenport broke barriers with his debut single, ‘My Return Address Is You,’ which charted on Billboard for 10 weeks in 2017, and made him the first African-American producer to chart on Billboard for Electronic Dance Music. Last January, the International Music and Entertainment Association named him the Electronica Artist of the Year.
