ZHU Officially Releases His "Bad & Boujee" Remix, Marks 1st Release Since GENERATIONWHY
The moniker of the Georgia based hip hop trio that has in recent weeks become a household name, “Migos” has of late dominated charts via their release of “Bad and Boujee,” a captivating track that has attracted countless streams, and not surprisingly, several remixes that play most prominently on the single’s key lyrical moments “raindrop, droptop,” and “thot thot.”
ZHU now adds his name to the list of artists that have engineered their own take on the viral track. Made distinctly ZHU by an improvised lyrical add in, and complemented by sultry, toned percussive elements, ZHU pairs his own crisp, unmistakable vocals to the remix, slowed down from its initial hip hop/trap-esque speed to a contemplative—albeit bass infused—take on the Migos original. Released only two hours ago on SoundCloud, the Bad and Boujee remix marks ZHU’s first formal release since his 2016 debut album, GENERATIONWHY, a hopeful premonition that more new ZHU music may be to come in 2017.
The remix garnered the attention of the Internet earlier in the week after a video of the remix, previewed at LA’s Air + Style festival this past weekend, surfaced on YouTube. Those who sampled the remix on YouTube wondered if ZHU would officially release the artistic remix have had their question answered in a shorter time frame than perhaps expected.
