Listen to 6LACK on the Remix of one of 2019’s most Anthemic R&B Hits
Evan Dale // Nov 2, 2019
As if Snoh Aalegra’s 2019 hasn’t already been an undeniable breakout; as if her album, -Ugh Those Feels Again wasn’t already one of this year’s most celebrated and most important projects; as if I Want You Around – taken from the same project – wasn’t already one of her biggest hits and one of this year’s most anthemic R&B singles; East Atlanta emotional architect, 6LACK is on the remix. Expectedly, it’s a dream collaboration.
Built on the same opening half from Snoh Aalegra, 6LACK brings his compliments to a second verse that shows how deeply invested he was in the original. Borrowing cadence, making creative plays on original lines, and bringing his own hip-hop R&B grey area spin to it all, 6LACK does justice to the original cut while unearthing something entirely new and interesting in its remix. And that’s always the goal.
Add it to the canon of Snoh Aalegra and 6LACK, and count it as a win for both artists, for R&B, and for music as a whole.
