POPsessions: Afrojack on Crushes, Karaoke and Secret Collabs
Dutch house connoisseur Nick van de Wall, a.k.a. Afrojack has taken the DJ world by storm as one of the most prominent names to stand behind the decks. At just 26-years-old, the baby-faced DJ and music producer has made a name for himself in the last few years collaborating with chart-toppers Chris Brown, Pitbull, Ne-Yo, David Guetta (hello, he co-wrote and produced "Titanium"!), Leona Lewis and Queen B herself, Beyonce, along with running his own imprint label, won a Grammy, and still somehow finds the time to DJ at the biggest international events of the year.
But anyone can look up an interview with Afrojack and find out the things that make him a superstar DJ. We wanted to know: what makes Nick tick? Check out our POPsessions below and get to know Afrojack in a whole new way!
