German DJ and record producer Robin Schulz remixed the song in a more up-tempo fashion, with the remix being released as a single on 4 February 2014 in North America and 7 February in Europe.

An alternate version of the Schulz remix was released on November 11, 2014, featuring additional vocals from American rapper T.I. and American singer Chris Brown. This version is featured on the Ultra Music compilation album Ultra Dance 16.

Chart performance

On 27 April 2014, "Waves" debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart, selling 127,000 copies in its first week,[6] and then remained there the following week. The song also peaked at number one in Austria, Germany, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland. In the United States, the remix reached number one on the Billboard Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart for the issue dated 16 August 2014.[7] "Waves" also topped the UK's Official Audio Streaming Chart for eight consecutive weeks and ended 2014 as both the UK's fourth most streamed track and fourth best-seller, with 32.1 million streams and selling 815,000 copies.[8]

Music video

The music video for the remix of "Waves" was shot in Tulum, Mexico and released on 3 February 2014;[9] another identical version was uploaded by Ultra Music the following day.[10] Belarusian model Maryna Linchuk and British model James Penfold star in the video as a couple, with Mr. Probz in a cameo in a bar. The video begins with Penfold swimming towards a desert island. After reaching the shore and knocking some coconuts down from a tree, he recounts a time when he and his girlfriend were on holiday together. They are shown to get on very well at first, but then have several arguments, and this culminates in them breaking up one evening. The scene switches to Penfold sitting in a jacuzzi and drinking several shots of vodka, revealing that the desert island never existed and was only in his mind. He then collapses back-first into the Jacuzzi and drowns. The video ends with Penfold lying dead in the middle of the ocean.[11] The video has over 380 million views as of October 2019.[9]
