The original Harlem Shake has blown up in the last 2 weeks, and of course one of the most talked about rappers has thrown out a remix for us. Azealia Banks, no doubt, fits perfectly over this beat because she first blew up with “212″, so this is naturally where she belongs. The lyrics are controversial just like her, and I absolutely love this song. As for her original material, her first single “Young Rapunzel” is supposed to be dropping sometime soon. Enjoy this for now, because I believe when she drops her first official single, she will begin her world domination.
‘Jump’ is definitely, if not the most, my most favorite cut off her Unapologetic album, and now it is finally gaining some attention getting remixed by Club Cheval. I don’t know much about Cheval, but I might have to look into more of their remixes because I have to say this is straight fire. The original was banging, but I think, I just might like this one just a bit more. If it’s possible, the song achieved a level of sexiness that I didn’t think was possible, and the added feature of one of my long time favorites Theophilus London fits so perfectly over the slowed down Ginuwine cover.
On a side note, that picture above is from Rihanna’s recent Terry Richardson photo shoot which I highly suggest you take a look at because it does Rihanna all the justice in the world!
Lana Del Rey’s amazing song, ‘Blue Jeans’ gets its first house infused remix. While I think the original was absolutely amazing, this actually isn’t bad at all. Azealia Banks is one of my favorites out right now, and you can tell that she just fits perfectly over a house beat, and this proves it. Nothing compares to the original, but this is a pretty good take on it!
yeah, you read that correctly.
Carefree Rihanna went and made not one, but TWO remixes with the one and only Chris Brown. I’m not even sure how to review this song….just listen for now I guess….I’ll save my thoughts for the Cake remix
One of the most unique artists of 2011, James Blake, is now on his remix game and he adds D’Angelo’s “Left & Right’ to his list. I’m going to give this a couple of more replays before I make a final decision, but the original was SO GOOD, that its hard to hear a remix, especially one as unique as James Blake. Although I did LOVE James Blake’s album, I think he needs to stick to making his own tracks. My opinion could change in a couple of hours though.
