Spring Break is the theme of week 6 on Dancing with the Stars. Spring Break usually evokes images of the beach, bikinis, fun in the sun. So it’s unusual that former Army soldier contestant Noah Galloway and his pro dance partner Sharna Burgess will Rumba to the song “Waves” by Dutch recording artist Mr. Probz.
Waves hit the US dance radio in April 2014. In November, German electronic music producer Robin Schulz made a remix of it with vocals from American rapper T.I. and R&B singer Chris Brown. The song is about a man who wants his girlfriend to love him again. But he’s slowing “drifting away, and it feels like I’m drowning.” In the Waves video, we see the man in despair, drinking shots of vodka in a jacuzzi. Then he ends up in the ocean (alive or dead, we’re not sure). Galloway and Burgess will no doubt deliver an inspirational performance, as usual. But it is a strange choice of music.
