Rihanna – Desperado (3lau Remix)
Rihanna’s eighth studio album, ANTI was widely acclaimed by critics as one that pushed the boundaries of R&B — one of the main factors that helped it reach double platinum status since it bowed in early 2016.
One of the standout tracks of the genial album, “Desperado” has now received the remix treatment by talented American producer 3LAU, to great effect. 3LAU has cleverly left the original vocals practically unblemished, though he has increased the tempo and added a powerful beat to the remix, making it significantly more danceable than the soulful original track.
The producer has also borrowed certain percussive elements from future bass and trap, making for a unique and energetic build-up which melts into the bass-heavy, almost Dyro-esque electro house drop.
