DJ Tunez and Flash's New Single 'Too Much' Is Your New Summer Anthem

DJ Tunez's latest is going to be on heavy rotation this summer.

DJ Tunez and Flash link up once again on their latest single "Too Much," the highly-anticipated follow-up to their 2017 single "Get Up. "

"Too Much" is a breezy, made-for-the-summer jam, that sees Flash singing about a lady friend who is so wonderful that she's simply "too much" to handle. "The song explores the love, beauty and style of ladies across the globe," said the artists in a press release.


The song features mellow production from Guiltybeatz and an undeniably infectious hook. It will certainly be on rotation for us all summer.

"Listeners near and far will soon be harmonizing, 'you light up my world, swear I love you, love you just the way you are,' says the duo. "The overall idea expressed in the song is, woman are everything,"
