“Scared To Be Lonely,” Martin Garrix’s new collaboration with Dua Lipa, officially premieres on Friday, January 27.

RCA has not yet announced a radio impact plan for the song, but one major market pop station is already excited about the release.

Erik Bradley, a programming director for influential Chicago pop station B96, called “Scared To Be Lonely” a “hot pick” as part of a feature on the All Access radio website. The station’s other “hot picks” include Julia Michaels’ “Issues” and Marian Hill’s “Down.”

“Scared To Be Lonely” is the follow-up to Garrix’s “In The Name Of Love.” The single, which jointly credited Bebe Rexha, reached the Top 15 at US pop radio. It also earned a platinum certification from the RIAA.
