A DJ with a reputation for producing hits guaranteed to get the party started, Tujamo returns with his latest remix, a re-imagination of David Guetta’s Lil Wayne/Nicki Minaj feature, “Light My Body Up.” The Guetta/Minaj combo marks the duo’s fourth collaboration, with 2011’s “Where Them Girls At,” “Turn Me On,” and 2015’s “Hey Mama” preceding Light My Body Up.
Guetta’s original opens with a verse in Minaj’s characteristic fierce style, then quickly cuts to a vocal piece that leads up to the track’s chorus, all of which are supported by Minaj. While the song’s introductory verse is arguably one of the stronger points of Light My Body Up, Tujamo foregoes it in his remix, along with Lil Wayne’s succeeding verse. The track, however surprisingly, does not lose any of its amp from the verse’s removal, Tujamo focusing on the development of newly added percussive elements that round the song out, the drop modified to a higher energy, trumpet like explosion of sound.
Tujamo’s remake increases the pace of the Guetta original, positioning the remix for smash dance floor success, and in turn, further illuminating the already brilliant original.
