I truly enjoyed playing along and putting my spin to this beautiful song by Martin Solveig and Dragonette.

If you want to know more about this beautiful song, you can read here below directly from WikiPedia:

“Hello” is a song performed by French DJ and record producer Martin Solveig and Canadian synthpop band Dragonette, taken from the former’s fifth studio album, Smash (2011). The song was released as the album’s lead single on 6 September 2010 by Mercury Records. It is Solveig’s most successful single to date, peaking at number one in Austria, Belgium (Flanders), Czech Republic and the Netherlands, while charting within the top 10 in ten other countries. It also reached number one on the Hot Dance Club Songs chart in the United States.

Additionally, the song became Solveig’s and Dragonette’s first appearance on the Billboard Hot 100 in April 2011, eventually peaking at number 46 in June. It has since been certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for sales of 1,000,000 units. The song has been featured in 90210, The Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl and in Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. It was also featured in Tim Hortons’ 2013 ad for their ‘Roll up the Rim to Win’ promotion. It also used as the intro theme to the TV series Cheer! on CMT. The song appears in the video game Dance Central 3. The music video is a tennis match scene played on the grounds of the French Open tournament in Paris.

There are two variants: a long version which is the first episode of a series of music videos called “Smash”, and a short condensed version. The long version of the music video is divided into two chapters. The first chapter is an introductory dialogue and backstory (by Nelson Monfort) involving two of the main characters, a tennis player named Martin Solveig (as himself) and his tennis coach or manager Lafaille (played by DJ Grégory Darsa). In Chapter 2 the song plays over a tennis match, recorded live at the main stadium court of the Roland Garros complex, court Philippe Chatrier.

The short version consists of a re-cut version of this chapter. In the tennis match, Martin Solveig faces fellow DJ Bob Sinclar. As the match progresses Solveig struggles to gain any points, and is unable to win a game. With the score at 6–0, 6–0, 5–0, Sinclar is about to serve for matchpoint when “She” (Solveig’s love interest) enters the crowd, and Solveig decides he must win to impress her. He returns a serve but a lineswoman (Mathilde Johansson) calls the ball out, awarding the match to Sinclar. Novak Djokovic enters the arena and convinces the referee to overturn the call. Solveig makes a strong comeback, rallying to match point.

However, Gaël Monfils comes into the stadium and kisses Solveig’s love interest. Solveig sees this and decides to (literally) throw in the towel. In the long version only, the video ends with “to be continued” displayed on the screen.

I hope you enjoyed reading this article and watching my video of the drum cover of Hello by Martin Solveig and Dragonette.
