Israeli pop-duo Static and Ben-El, who recently embarked on a media tour in the United States in an effort to achieve their international breakthrough, have appeared on the country's top morning show "Good Morning America."
The two were accompanied by a hip-hop star Pitbull, who features on their English-language song "Further Up," which they performed during their appearance.
When asked by the show's host Michael Strahan how the partnership between the three came to be, Pitbull recalled a phone call he received from Israeli-American media mogul Haim Saban - whom he worked with numerous times - offering the rapper to record a single with the duo.
"You guys are big stars in your country, with almost half a billion views on YouTube," said Stachan to the audience as he introduced the Israeli stars, before asking how it feels to work with someone of Pitbull's stature. The pair replied that it was "a dream come true."
The tune marks the duo’s first release since being signed to Saban's record label "Saban Music Group."
The Egyptian-born billionaire is very active in pro-Israel political efforts in the U.S. and was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame two years ago.
Saban’s record label signed a multi-million dollar deal, worth up to $500 million, with Universal Music Group just one day before the song’s premiere.
The song samples the 1995 hit Here Comes the Hotstepper by Jamaican dancehall artist Ini Kamoze.
