I have already expressed my love for this track in its original form, but now Maverick brings the raw talents of many UK artists. First, I am really happy to see Devlin back on tracks, he has been one of my favorites for a while now, I love his flow so much. While I’m not too familiar with George the Poet, both him and Chipmunk brought fire to this track. The features on this track gives the track a much different vibe than the original, and both will definitely be on repeat.
We have been getting hints at this collab for a little bit now, and it has finally dropped. I have to admit, this is fire! Beyonce and Nicki make a perfect team, I’m not sure why Beyonce hasn’t done too many features before, it definitely adds to her tracks. Nicki adds probably one of her best verses yet to the track, and while I haven’t heard her single ‘Anaconda’ yet, if she brings this much heat to a feature, lets hope she continues with it on her own solo stuff.
Beyonce also takes a quick second to kind of address the elevator incident that she kind of brushed off with her official statement. Anyway, I’m here for the track and not the drama.
Disclosure is one of my favorite artists to come out of the last couple of years, and they can do no wrong, and this track just proves that. While the original track was huge when it first came out, Disclosure adds a slight sooth dancefloor ready vibe to it, and it is fantastic! I would love to hear more remixes from these guys. I don’t know if they are in talks of a new album, since their first album is still churning out the tunes, but I have to say I’m ready for it!
The already hit song but Beyonce and Jay-z finally gets remix treatment, and who better, than Yeezus himself! I gotta admit, I do have a vendetta against Beyonce, but her most recent album was fantastic, and I haven’t been the biggest Kanye fan as of late, but his verse on this is actually great! Nothing else has changed in the song, just the fact that a Kanye verse has been added to the beginning, so not much of a remix, but anyway take a listen below!
JoJo is someone who has an immense amount of talent, but sadly her record label will not let her show it. Luckily it hasn’t stopped her from putting out tracks for all of us. From her amazing Agape mixtape, to remix tracks such as this. ‘Anything’ for those that remember, was a track on her album The Longest Road. Now, years later, with her vocals sounding better than ever, she is accompanied by a LA local artist Casey Veggies which is an unlikely pairing, but it fits so perfectly. You can also watch her perform this track live here!
I have always loved me some JoJo, and I will continue to support her because she deserves all of it.
Sub Focus caught my attention with their genius collaboration with Alpines, ‘Tidal Wave‘. This new single follows the dance vibe of their previous single, and features the ever so talented Alex Clare. This song has already hit charts in the UK, and although I doubt it will hit USA charts, at least you can still enjoy it!
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.
