Iconic Dutch DJ and producer Armin Van Buuren has collaborated with rising singer-wongwriter RBVLN for their single “Weight of the World.” Released on his own Armada Music banner, this blissful electronic pop ballad evokes pure bliss.
The production is excellent, using lively synth melodies that soar over the breezy house beat. What really pulls at the listener’s heartstrings, however, are the insightful lyrics that tell a vivid story about being in love. RBVLN’s uplifting pop vocals effortlessly jive with the poetic lyrics, which tell a romantic tale. “If it ever gets too heavy, put the weight of the world on the world on me,” he serenades throughout the chorus.

If running one of the biggest independent dance music labels in the world wasn’t enough, van Buuren is also on a mission to help clean up the oceans as an ambassador for the World Wildlife Fund. Since December of 2019, his goal has been to mobilize millions in support of the #BeatPlastic campaign.
