Afrojack, one of the world’s most in demand producers and DJs, has been honored today by The Recording Academy of America who have nominated the superstar for his second GRAMMY award. Afrojack (Nick van de Wall) is nominated as “Best Remixer” for his work on the Leona Lewis song Collide. The remix, which was released last July on J Records, became an instant sensation and is still riding a wave of success in clubs and through radio airplay across the globe. When given the news, an elated Nick van de Wall had this to say, “I can’t believe the news! To be nominated again is incredible! This is a real honour… thank YOU!!!” Needless to say, he was excited!
Afrojack was nominated (and subsequently won) his first GRAMMY in the same category this past February for his and David Guetta remix of Madonna’s Revolver. Afrojack also worked on several high profile songs this year that have been recognized by The Recording Academy with GRAMMY nominations. Although not personally nominated for his work, he is proud to have had a hand in these significant records.
Chris Brown’s Look At Me Now is vying for “Best Rap Performance” and “Best Rap Song” respectively. (Afrojack is a co-producer on the song nominated.) Nothing But The Beat by David Guetta, which is up for “Best Electronica Album”. (Afrojack is a co-producer on the songs; Titanium, Lunar, The Future and I Just Wanna)
The 54th annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast on CBS on February 12, 2012. Afrojack will attend the ceremony in LA.
