I’ve decided that winter just isn’t doing it for me anymore. Fortunately, a savior has arrived in the form of Shmallen. The self-proclaimed “professional poolside lounger piña colada sipper’s” remix of Aaliyah’s R&B classic is somehow even sexier and lush than the original. Normally, I’m a bit hesitant when young producers decide to mess around with old school tracks, but Shmallen does it plenty of justice. Building on the vocals of the late, great R&B songstress, the track adds some nu-disco flair, taking it from bedroom slow jam to dancefloor paradise. Stream it below.
