#TheeEsirLaneThe Remix Power:
Well whenever a single is dropped and your left like “I wish Lil wayne(or whoever you think is perfect) was on that joint”….Your only hope is that he freestyles on the beat or the song gets a remix.I’m a big fun of remixes and i love some more than the original song.*that happens a lot*!So i decided i give u a playlist of some 10 remixes i absolutely love.
1.Back to sleep-Chris Brown × Usher × Zayn Malik
My favorite song off the Royalty album is not “back to sleep” but the remix made my number one remix song.After all Usher is a legend and his verse is just amazing and perfect for a steamy night,CB gives a new verse and Zayn brings the “I’m now having sex” vibe to the track.
2.Down in the DM-YG × Nicki Minaj
The song was released at a period when there wasn’t much new Nicki music.So Her Minajesty on an awesome beat and a sizzling track by YG came,spit and conquered with two amazing verses.Nicki rapped on what we already know she gets…DM’s!!…and brags…
♪”If it go down in your DM then baby boy, you lucky
Cause 99.9% of these fuckboys can’t fuck me”♪
3.Wrist-Chris Brown × Young Thug × Jeezy
Well earlier I mentioned CB’s album Royalty and this tracj is my favorite on the album.I love it when CB goes rap and kills it and the original featured skilled rapper Solo Lucci.The remix attempted a similar feat with Young Thugger killing it on the track and Jeezy got in on the party.You can’t help but love Thugger and CB together.
4.De Be Cypher-Saeon × A.T × Eva Alordiah × Ozone × Ycee × Tesh Carter ×Poe
Thime beats on this track just make u want to freestyle and the remix came as a cypher featuring the hottest next rated Nigerian rappers who definately proved a point.The original song was by Saeon ft Ycee and they both appeared on the remix.
5.Jagaban-Ycee × Olamide
“♪I be that new school jagaban
show me another younger
going harder than♪”…Indeed at the moment no one’s going harder than Ycee.Jagaban is almost like “Young king” and Olamide who’s the reigning Best Nigerian artist of 2015 made the track his.On a pure afro beat that has a war feeling to it and the rappers went violent on the track.
6.I Love This Shit-August Alsina × Chris Brown × Trey Songz
I still remember the moment at BET Awards 2014 when August perfomed at the awards’ show and was joined by CB and Trey Songz where the trio seranaded the crowd with their thuggish RnB style.At that moment RnB was at its finest.By my writing u can tell i adore the song…I clearly love this shit.
7.Roll up(re-up)-Emtee × AKA × Wizkid
“♪This isn’t the remix its the re up♪”…raps Emtee on the track and true to that word the song is better waaaayy better than the original track by Emtee.I mean with megastar and legend Wizkid and SA rap god AKA could anything go wrong.Its beat is soothing and lit at the same time.The video shows Wiz and Emtee dabbing at a pace that is juhs so addictive….dabbing at its best.Time to roll up that blunt.
8.Juice back-Nasty C × Davido × Cassper Nyovest
This song was compared to track no. 7 on the list since they’re both South African and featured acts with a beefing history in Davido vs Wizkid & Cassper vs AKA.Nasty C’s verse is probably a stand out edging Cassper’s.All the same its a song that gets you in party mood…Trap and hiphop at its best.
9.Rambo-The Weeknd × Bryson Tiller
♪”Rambo,they beggin for mercy like the lambo…No they told me kill them all,goddamn though..I know they wanna see me fall,look where I’m at though…On 2 feet…”♪.For me only ‘the hills’ and ‘Might not’ beat this track…The Weeknd at his amazing best.His verse is amazing though short and Tiller on the chorus just top notch.This was one of Tiller’s best song i’ve heard.
10.Zigo-AY × Diamond Platnumz
For swahili lovers they don’t come better than this Zigo track.Tz rap legend AY teamed up with Tz best artist in a while Diamond and the result is this amazing tune.It even charted BBC’s African tracks at a point.It led to the now popular phrase “Nakula kwa macho” literally translated as “Eating with my eyes” meaning guys just watching pretty girls from a far..gerrit!!
