Nick Jonas is definitely stepping out of his previous identity with this album. First collaborating with Tinashe, now with Jhene Aiko, I have to give the guy props. I really love his album too, it is definitely a solid crossover album filled with huge tracks. Now he has been remixing a lot of his tracks, and this ‘Chains’ remix is definitely one to keep. Jhene Aiko’s sexy, smooth vocals fit perfectly with Nick’s equally raw vocals. Everything about this track is great, it all just fits together so perfectly, Nick definitely knows what he is doing this time around and is going to get mad airplay on every airwave with this track.
Now that fall has kicked in, I feel like the release of this track is just perfect. I have been a fan of both Rochelle Jordan and JMSN for quite some time now, both are huge talents in their own respects. So, needless to say, when the two join forces only perfection would come from it. ‘Lowkey’ is straight night time vibes, RoJo keeps it smooth with her vocals and later JMSN comes in and kills his verse and just adds to the flow of the track. These two fit perfectly together, even though separately their styles are quite different sounding.
These guys deserve so much credit because this track is definitely going to be on repeat for a while!
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.
