Afrojack doesn’t think he’s famous enough

“There’s nothing better than making music and hearing 3,000 people chant, ‘Afrojack! Afrojack!’ People are looking – now it’s time for me to kick ass.” – Afrojack

In a recent interview with Billboard, Afrojack confesses he wants to go commercial, he want’s to be known by more people, he wants crowds to chant his name in unison: He wants to rule the world.

OK, maybe not so far as ruling the world, be he really does want to pursue a similar career path to David Guetta and Avicii.

This new plan of attack can be seen in his upcoming album Forget the World. With the lead single Ten Feet Tall already reaching no. 14 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart dated May 17, we’d say he’s well on his way to topping the charts.

Afrojack wants to  become exclusive, by cutting down his usual 25 gigs per month to 20 per month, he wants to focus on getting headliner slots at top-of-the-range festivals and clubs.

He is the rock star of house music:

“I’m not EDM…If I wanted to be a successful EDM artist, I wouldn’t put 80 percent of everything back into the show. I would be chilling, demanding 20 hotel rooms, playing for one-and-a-half hours and being miserable as f-. But I don’t want to be an EDM artist – I want to make something that people can be proud of.”

The bee-line to the commercial industry is evident in his new album as it hosts special guests such as snoop-dogg (or is it Lion/Zilla/Magician these days?), Wiz Khalifa, Devin Cruise and Sting?

HE says: “I want to make an album my grandma and my fans are going to like,” says Afrojack. “I want to make my grandma understand a drop and make club fans understand a song.”
