Iann Dior And Maejor Release New Single: Be U (216 HZ)
Audio content and production studio, Audio Up, has come together with multi-platinum selling and chart-topping recording artist iann dior and Grammy-nominated heavyweight record producer, singer, and songwriter Maejor for the release of a new single, “Be U (216 HZ),” available across all streaming platforms via 10K Projects.
Written and produced by Jared Gutstadt, Meajor, and Jeff Peters, the track is a remix of music derived from the hit health, wellness, and intentional sound frequency podcast, Maejor Frequency, an Audible Original hosted and executive produced by Maejor and executive produced by Audio Up.
Set to an octave of 216 HZ, the track has an octave frequency resonance with 432 HZ, a tuning that has been proven to promote peace and well-being, and has been called the harmonic intonation of nature. The collaboration bridges the gap between the independent label, podcast giant, and these two global artists, and marks the first time the health and wellness space has ventured into the pop music realm via sound.
“Be U (216 HZ)” marks Audio Up’s second collaboration with both dior and Maejor. In 2020, dior was cast in the smash, four-part Audio Up produced podcast Halloween In Hell, which also featured his original track “Empty Souls.” Maejor stars as the host of the #1 Audio Up
produced health and wellness podcast, Maejor Frequency, which was released exclusively through Audible this past January. Featuring original music from Maejor, the podcast explores the health and wellness space in a new and innovative way. After being diagnosed with rare blood cancer CML, Maejor sought traditional medical treatment, while also exploring the healing powers of sound. The show follows Maejor as he travels the world, and experiments with a variety of different sound frequencies to develop and encourage wellness, with the goal to bring intentional frequency into the mainstream.
“Be U (216 HZ)” is available today across all streaming platforms. Get the track HERE.

iann dior most recently released his latest album on to better things on January 21. The album showcases his musicality, tapping into his alt-pop/rock sensibilities while still maintaining his capabilities as a rapper on trap-influenced tracks like “i might” and “v12” ft. Lil Uzi Vert. The album has amassed over 180+ million streams and upon release landed the lead album on the “New Music Friday” roundup on NPR’s “All Songs Considered” Podcast, who praised dior for “making a run at world domination with a seamless, genre-blurring mix of guitar rock, pop and rap.” The album received additional critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, and NME, who hailed the project as “a bigger, more confident statement, and a perfect ode to the evolution of pop-punk.”
Previously, dior earned a Billboard Hot 100 #1 for his feature on 4x Platinum hit “Mood” with 24KGoldn, which spent 33 weeks inside the Top 10 and has amassed over one billion audience spins at radio and over one billion streams on Spotify. He added to his accolades 2 VMA nominations for Song of the Year and Best Collaboration, Billboard and iHeart Radio award nominations, four RIAA-certified gold singles, and collaborations with everyone from Travis Barker to Clean Bandit to Lil Baby. With all of these achievements under his belt, iann dior has become a genre-agnostic force to be reckoned with in pop music today.
