GOLDBOY (Kiiara x The Weeknd)
Have two songs ever been so perfect for one another as Kiiara’s twitchy electro-banger “Gold” and The Weeknd’s recent Daft Punk collab, “Starboy,” in recent history? No? We don’t think so. And the mind that was the first to think, “wait a minute…” is none other than Detroit singer-songwriter-producer Joshua (aka Gosh Pith’s Josh Smith). This isn’t just a mash-up though; it’s also a cover, and Joshua recorded his own vocals in place of The Weeknd’s. It works, and well. Press play below and go off.
Please see our transcription of Joshua’s acceptance of our prestigious “This Bumps” Award below:
Shouts out Ki Ki and Abel, love you bbs, thanks Jazmin for tracking my vocal take.
