ENSPIRE Contributor: Megan Grosfeld
On March 18, 2022, Brit Award-winner Mabel, Jax Jones, and Galantis released their new single ‘Good Luck’. Now available now on Capitol Records, the three debuted their empowering new single heavily influenced by “house, heartbreak, and female solidarity”. Mabel further described the track as an “empowering song you need when getting ready to go out: when you’re feeling low about someone, and your friends will take you out to get that person off your mind.”
The inspiration for “Good Luck” ran deeper for Mabel than the imagined dancefloor. Mabel avidly watched and re-watched ‘Paris Is Burning’, ‘Pose’, and ‘Drag Race’ between writing songs. She looked back on how dance music became a hub for expression, liberation, and inclusion.
Having just landed an eleventh top 20 smash with ‘I Wish’, Mabel has now surpassed 4.5 billion streams and 2.5 million adjusted album sales for debut album ‘High Expectations’ (the biggest selling debut by a British woman in 2019). As a result, the Mabel of 2022 is a young woman living in full and self-actualized power. Mabel, on her own clear terms, has blossomed into the homegrown superstar you see today.
Looking back on the defiant roots of the inescapable hit “Don’t Call Me Up”, the theme is brought to life in the “Good Luck” video; which further explores the visual universe of the first single “Let Them Know”, in which the club is no mere physical state but also a fearless new state of mind.
To understand the strength behind “Good Luck” is to also know the emotional journey Mabel has been on these last few years. With an important voice in contemporary pop, her new music emerged during a startling few years in the public eye and through the new lens of the pandemic. Right at the beginning of lockdown, Mabel and her dogs moved back in with her parents. She threw herself into dance classes and channeled everything she missed into this brand new musical chapter.
Setting a new standard for songwriting in dance music, Galantis is a collaborative project led by Christian Karlsson. The story of Galantis started back in 2009. Working as Bloodshy, Karlsson’s songwriting collaborations have included Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Katy Perry, and Britney Spears. His collaborations led to the birth of the Galantis project which had its live debut at 2014’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. They continued years later as one of dance music’s most dynamic and in-demand live performers. Galantis has received over 4.5 billion cumulative worldwide streams, over 1 billion video views to date, and reached number 1 on Billboard Dance album charts. They earned GRAMMY nominations across their three albums. Having collaborated with Little Mix and David Guetta on “Heartbreak Anthem”, Galantis most recently collaborated with Years & Years on Olly Alexander’s latest hit, “Sweet Talker”.
