STORY OF SONG

“The Business” is the late 2020 deep house single from Dutch DJ and producer Tiësto, featuring uncredited vocals from James “Yami” Bell, who wrote the track along with Tiësto, Julia Karlsson and Anton Rundberg.

“The Business” tells the story of a person admitting that their relationship is no longer working, but giving it “one more night to get this”, but ultimately getting down to business – meaning breaking up.

The music video was released alongside the single, and was directed by Christian Breslauer. The video features US dancers Casey Frey and Kyla Bullings, with Frey playing the role of an zombie just come to life thanks to Bullings, who takes him to diners to show his dancing talents. As of late April 2021, the video has almost 91 million views with over 920 thousand likes.
