Kiiara Gets Lil’ Wayne For “Gold” Urban Remix: Listen
Newcomer Kiiara scored a massive hit with her debut single “Gold” this year. The electropop/trap track recently reached the Top 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and it has received a platinum certification in the US (for selling over 1 million downloads). Now, looking to expand the range of attack of her well-received single, the singer from Illinois - who some consider as a cross of Ellie Goulding and Lorde - has premiered an “urban remix” of “Gold”. Premiered last night, this new version features rapper Lil’ Wayne. The song is in essence the same, but there’s now a Lil’ Wayne verse in the middle.
It’s pretty evident that Atlantic Records made this remix happen so “Gold” may increase its popularity and sales by getting some love from urban radios now.
EHHH… big fan of the song but… was this really necessary?
Let’s just say that I agree with these two comments posted on the remix’s SoundCloud page:
- "Wow, kinda ruined the middle of this song."
- "I normally wouldn't bother commenting but this is terrible. Your original is infinitely better. Sorry"
