OWSLA‘s newest signee TroyBoi has been putting out songs at a juggernaut pace. Fresh off the run of his V!BEZ trilogy on the aforementioned label, he’s just made a pit stop over at Area 25 to remix Party Favor, A$AP Ferg & Juicy J’s smash anthem, “Wait A Minute.” He opts for a stripped-down, yet heavier direction, replacing the melodic bits and overall fluidity of the original of the original with a chopped-up, trap arrangement set to a lower tempo. Doing so makes the vocal parts sound more cunning as well, ultimately making TroyBoi’s take on the tune a hugely destructive festival weapon.
Outside his busy release schedule, TroyBoi is also gearing up for an expansive Nostalgia tour, which kicks off in October and sees the artist travelling across the states all through the end of the year. More information and presale tickets can be found here.
Party Favor’s latest effort will have one rushing to stream it—contrary to the track’s title. “Wait A Minute” sees the DJ tapping into his bassier, hip-hop side and enlisting proven genre heavyweightsA$AP Ferg and Juicy J. Electronic constructions take a backseat in the context of “Wait A Minute,” but nevertheless remain audible. A trap-esque background beat, courtesy of Party Favor, provides the unimposing foundation upon which A$AP Ferg and Juicy J lay their respective verses.
A$AP Ferg and Juicy J’s contributions take center sonic stage on “Wait A Minute,” a keyed up expedition into hip-hop sound that offers a glimpse of the style that Party Favor fans can expect to hear in fuller form on the producer’s debut album, LAYERS, due April 26. LAYERS will feature cameos from rappers Lil Baby, Rich The Kid, KingJet, and more.
Diplo had speakers blazing in May when he released what would come to be known as Deadpool 2’s unofficial theme song — “Welcome To The Party.” The original track, included in the motion picture’s soundtrack, featured the rap stylings of French Montana and Lil Pump, as well as some background harmonizing from teenage vocalist, Zhavia, known from her appearance on The Four.
A few weeks later, Diplo has followed up on the gargantuan release with a remix from the likes of hip-hop heavy hitter, Juicy J, Famous Dex, and original contributor circling back for another go, Lil Pump. Reviving the same larger-than-life trap beat, the remix uses the three new verses to bring a similarly irreverent and rowdy fervor to the track, extending “Welcome To The Party’s” shelf-life well into the summer months.
Marshmello, Juicy J and Arthur Prince, recently came together to create their emotion filled track “You Can Cry,” full of deep piano and intricate verses, that received a moving official music video, and now receives an ASL music video to compliment it.
For an artist that never talks and is consistently concealed behind a mask, it makes sense that he would eventually figure out a way to speak. If you’ve been to a music festival, then there’s a chance you might have seen people on the side stage, signing the songs for all of those who are hearing impaired.
The video features the model Nyeisha Prince and Marshmello, as they swiftly move and interpret the music through their bodies and hands. Marshmello has been all about bringing people together through music, and now he reaches a new level of inclusivity by creating a video that everyone can enjoy.
Marshmello‘s new production, “You Can Cry,” is the quintessential collaboration the world has come to love and expect from the Buckethead producer since he gave us his Khalid collaboration “Silence” in the fall of last year.
His more recent pop-punk plunge aside, Marshmello has found comfort once again in transitioning between the hefty promises of his co-conspirator, Juicy J, and even sought to add another layer of emotional depth with James Arthurs vocal chops. He’s situated himself between catharsis and bubbling bass drops on “You Can Cry” in what might be the perfect hip-hop crossover fit for the radio — and ultimately, that’s anything but a hard place to be in.
