Grammy Award® winning DJ & Producer Afrojack is set to release his debut album FORGET THE WORLD, May 19th on Def Jam Recordings. New single "Ten Feet Tall" (ft. Wrabel) is out now, and is a larger than life track that debuted during the Super Bowl and is poised to be the song of the summer. The highly-anticipated album release also includes collaborations with the likes of Snoop Dogg ("Dynamite"), Sting ("Catch Tomorrow"), Wiz Khalifa ("Too Wild") and Chris Brown ("As Your Friend"), alongside a remix of "Do or Die" by Thirty Seconds To Mars.

Afrojack's collaboration with Snoop Dogg combines the super producer's trademark dance music style with Snoop's classic lyricism to create the deep and gritty sound of 'Dynamite' - a surefire crowd favorite at Afrojack's legendary live shows. The pair were first seen together at the MTV EMAs mimicking Eminem's 'My Name Is' in a spoof video.

In a bold and pioneering move, Afrojack recently became the first artist to premiere an album title and cover via Snapchat. The first reveal of FORGET THE WORLD was shared exclusively to fans via Snapchat stories, a concept from the makers of Snapchat itself. In a testament to his enigmatic approach to music, snippets of brand new music and exclusive content were being sent each day to followers of RealAfrojack in the lead up to his FORGET THE WORLD launch party in Miami.

Nick van der Wall, aka Afrojack, is one of the most notable and iconic names in electronic dance music today. At 26 years old, he has been a key player in the worldwide explosion and popularity of dance music today. The album is "set to shock," says Afrojack. "It's like an upside down world, it's completely crazy. I wanted my album to be an experience."

Grammy Award® winning DJ &Producer, Afrojack, is one of the most influential names in electronic dance music today. At only 26, he has played a large role in the worldwide explosion and popularity of dance music with The Hollywood Reporter recently calling him ''a global icon'' set ''to conquer the world" and in 2013 Forbes placed him #7 on its annual list of "The World's Highest Paid DJs." Having already collaborated with some of today's biggest stars(Pitbull &Ne-Yo on #1 single "Give Me Everything," David Guetta, and many more), topped the Billboard Charts, performed at some of the world's most iconic music festivals, including Coachella, Ultra and Tomorrowland and becoming only the second DJ in history to place his hand prints in the Hollywood Walk Of Fame, FORGET THE WORLD is sure to set a new benchmark in what's destined to be another landmark year for Afrojack.
