Childish Gambino's Redbone Gets a Mustard Upgrade

Calling Childish Gambino's Redbone a modern day classic is getting less and less outlandish with each day. I'm still amazed that he pulled off that falsetto so flawlessly. You'd be hard pressed to find me another artist who could sell hundreds of thousands of records as a rapper, then turn around and drop an R&B classic.

Original aside, when I saw the track below on DJ Mustard's new DON'T BOX ME vol. 1 playlist, I was more than a little curious. Pressing play resulted in a much more excitable, snappier remix. The slow ebb and flow of the original was augmented with some heavy bass and a bouncy synth progression on the hook that almost overpowers the vocals. Were the vocals trampled a bit? Maybe, but the vibe of the original still carried over in a much more party friendly fashion. Share it with your friends to defamiliarize them with the original version that they're probably getting tired of hearing around now...#Redbone
