The fastest gainer at radio this month is Beyonce‘s ‘Drunk In Love.’ Its omnipresence continues to grow at both Pop/Urban stations thanks to some remixes from industry heavyweights Kanye West, The Weeknd, and T.I.
Kanye West amps up the sexual tension of the original, over a newly-produced Mike Dean beat, where Ye overtly expresses his sexual desires to, whom we can only imagine to be, Kim Kardashian. The graphic connotations leaves little to the imagination yet an interesting surprise awaits listeners, as he self-references ‘Flashing Lights’ — his 2007 single.
The Weeknd takes s party-ready approach in smooth braggadocio, iced with his unique falsetto , over a wildly-addictive, synthesized beat. While most of the hook remains the same, his new verses take an audio journey to a hazy party that only the 24-year-old can narrate.
T.I.‘s remix comes courtesy of DJ MLK’s “Watch The Duck EDM – Trap Remix” and features a much heavier percussion, as well as keeping some of the original lyrics and Jay-Z’s highlight intact.
