"The Power" is a single by English producer DJ Fresh, released as the third single from his album Nextlevelism. Rapper Dizzee Rascal features on the single as the main vocalist. It was released on 3 June 2012 in the United Kingdom as a digital download on iTunes.[1]

Music video[edit]

The music video for the song was uploaded to YouTube on 19 April 2012 at a length of two minutes and fifty-six seconds. The video was shot in Miami, United States during the Winter Music Conference 2012 and directed by Rohan Blair-Mangat. American rapper Bun B and the LMFAO robot appear in the video.[2]

Critical reception[edit]

Lewis Corner of Digital Spy gave the song a mixed review stating:

"I wanna party 'til my last breath/ 'Til there ain't no air in my lungs left," Rascal declares over speaker-jolting drum 'n' bass beats before the chorus bursts into a disco-come-dubstep raveathon with more heart-palpitating energy than a can of Red Bull. Just like the fizzy beverage, it's a track that most will prefer when mixed with a boozy tipple whilst bopping along at a Balearic Island resort. 4/5 stars.[3]
