DNCE RELEASES NEW SINGLE “KISSING STRANGERS” FEATURING NICKI MINAJ
For Immediate Release:
17 APRIL 2017 (TORONTO, ON) – Multi-platinum selling band DNCE have released their new single “Kissing Strangers” featuring global superstar Nicki Minaj. Boasting an anthemic chorus belted out by Minaj and DNCE, the track displays an infectious pop hook that DNCE fans have come to expect and love. Minaj delivers a high-energy rap verse over the song’s breakdown, giving the track a unique flavor, and expanding on the band’s signature sound. Get the track HERE.
DNCE first hinted at the new single on their socials last week with the help of social media super star, Doug The Pug, where the band posted an image of the famous pup with a phone number listed on his dog tag for fans to call. When fans called in to the listed phone number, the instrumental chorus of “Kissing Strangers” was revealed on the voicemail. That was followed by the official single announcement last week, when DNCE and Nicki posted photos from the set of the soon to be released music video.
The band recently shot a lyric video, featuring Doug The Pug, which will be released on April 20. A special behind the scenes look including outtakes from that video can be viewed on the band’s official “Kissing Strangers” Splash Page.
“Kissing Strangers” was released via all digital retailers and streaming services this past Friday. The song’s pseudo video can be viewed HERE. For more information on DNCE, please visit the band’s website.

An international success, global consumption of the song is over 7 million adjusted singles, including nearly 550 million streams on Spotify worldwide.
