Tiësto is a master at social media, so it is no surprise to see him reach 19 million fans on Facebook. To celebrate the achievement, Tijs Verwest — better known as Tiësto — has given out his remix of Beyoncé's smash single "Drunk in Love" as a free download. The "Red Lights" disc jockey gives the single a festival-sized melodic treatment, with big airy synths and a thumping bass line to compliment the cries from the "Flawless" singer. Old fans will be disappointed to see another release in 128 beats per minute with a standard four on the floor kick and festival-driven melody, but the new Tiësto has directed his new music to work for his DJ sets.

Tiësto is closing out the year strong. His "Birthday Treatment" remix of John Legend's "All of Me" was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Remixed Recoding, Non-Classical Category against tunes from Audien, Kaskade, Robin Schulz, Ming and Eddie Amador. The Dutch powerhouse DJ released his fifth studio album earlier this year, A Town Called Paradise, his first in five years.
Tiësto has been helming his own active label Musical Freedom, which has been steadily releasing music from a growing stable of promising young acts being built up by Tiësto.
