We hope everyone had a Happy New Year and are ready to hit the ground RUNNING in 2022.”

Danish singer Theresa Rex is the voice behind numerous hits, working with great artists like Jonas Blue, Alle Farben, and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. However, perhaps her most significant success came in her team up with Martin Jensen on the wildly popular “Solo Dance,” Martin’s breakthrough single, which stands at over 653 million streams on Spotify alone. 

On the collaboration, Rex says, “It was so special working with Martin and the whole team again. It has been a moment since ‘Solo Dance’ came out, but I think that ‘Running’ is the perfect follow up and adding Cheat Codes to the mix has made it pure magic.”

Martin Jensen added, “The energy working with this whole team was incredible. Reuniting with Theresa meant we had to do something extraordinary, so who better to do that with than our good friends Cheat Codes.”

Jensen enjoyed a stellar 2020, capping off the year with two epic homecomings Me, Myself, Live shows in November, a year in the making and the evolution of his Me, Myself, Online shows launched during the lockdown to keep connected to his fans.
