"Losing It" is a song by British producer Chris Lake and Australian producer Fisher released as a single on 13 July 2018 through Catch & Release and Astralwerks. It reached number one on the Australian Club Tracks chart and the US Dance Club Songs chart, and also charted in Flanders and the top 25 of the US Dance/Electronic Songs chart. It was nominated for Best Dance Recording at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, held in February 2019.[2] It was voted number two in the Triple J Hottest 100, 2018.[3]

Background[edit]

After Fisher performed the track in one of two sets he performed at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in 2017, the song became widely bootlegged by other DJs, so Fisher officially released the track himself in July 2018.[4] The ABC said the track has a "throbbing bass-aided beat".[4]

Critical reception[edit]

Billboard ranked "Losing It" third among the 30 best Dance/Electronic songs picked by its Dance/Electronic writing staff in its 2018 year-end review. Writer Kat Bein notes, "You couldn't go to a dance music festival in 2018 without hearing this song's booming bass drop and catchy vocal some 50 times. [...] Everyone from David Guetta to Paul van Dyk and Afrojack has thrown it into their sets, helping turn the collective creative tide toward a deeper, more minimal headspace."[5]

Billboard also placed "Losing It" 84th out of the 100 Best Songs released in 2018 as picked by its Hot 100 staff. Writer David Rishty notes that "The intoxicating house single has been played out by hundreds of touring acts, including Skrillex and Tiësto, in addition to BBC Radio 1 curators like Annie Nightingale and MistaJam. The song has also spent a whopping 15 weeks and counting on Billboard's Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart and continues to rise through the ranks, so we're likely going to be losing it to this one well into 2019."[6]
