Drake Participates in a Funky New Remix of MC Kevin O Chris’s “Ela É Do Tipo”

Champagne Papi has just remixed MC Kevin O Chris’s “Ela É Do Tipo” and the track is totally our type!

Drake must have been eyeing the track “Ela É Do Tipo” (translated to “She Is the Type”) because when Drake loves a track, he HAS to do a remix. The Canadian artist opens the track as he sings about his lady love in verses which will be ringing in our ears for a while, “First time that I saw you I wasn’t thinking of you, and I / I was just thinking of I,”

MC Kevin O Chris comes in and picks up the pace, making this track one foot-tapping, groovy number!

Every time Drake participates in a remixed version, it instantly becomes a hit and might even become the highlight of the song maker’s career. Drake, aka Remix King has had a string of remix releases over the years. He recently hopped on a new rendition of Summer Walker’s “Girls Need Love” earlier this year and in August, he released the video for “Money in the Grave” with Rick Ross.

Sam Smith Takes on ‘I Feel Love’

Donna Summer’s 1977 single ‘ I feel love’ is, quite simply, one of the greatest pop songs of all time. Before “I feel love,” Summer and her regular collaborator Giorgio Moroder had already pushed the boundaries of disco, stretching tracks out long past the 10minute mark and transforming them into Psychedelic Electronic Sex Odysseys. With ‘I feel love’ they created something eternal.

Today, Sam Smith has taken on “I Feel Love.” There is a reason for this: Smith’s version will be featured in a forthcoming Target Christmas ad campaign. (Hopefully, Moroder is getting a fat check off of this.) But considering that Smith got their start in dance-pop, it also gives them a chance to pay tribute to an originator. Smith first hit the pop radar by singing on Disclosure’s 2012 single “Latch,” and the “I Feel Love” cover brings Smith back together with one half of Disclosure; Guy Lawrence, one of the two Disclosure brothers, produces.

Smith does not attempt to reinvent “I Feel Love,” which would be pretty much impossible anyway. Instead, Lawrence simply recreates the original beat as closely as possible, while Smith reaches out for that elusive Donna Summer vocal register. There’s also a bit where they chant the lyrics in a spoken monotone, which is pretty funny. If you haven’t caught Smith’s cover and the original version of the Donna Summer’s classic, it’s high time you do!
