New Track: Kanye West ft. Miley Cyrus and Travis Scott – ‘Black Skinhead (Remix)’
Back in 2013, Kanye West whisked Miley Cyrus away from the MTV VMAs after her history-making performance to the recording studio to remix his ‘Yeezus’ single, ‘Black Skinhead’. Well, then nothing happened. No re-release came out, no side 2 of the album. It seemed like everything was abandoned when it came to the remix.
Like everything that was recorded and never released, the remix ended up on the Internet this morning and Travis Scott in addition to Miley.
If you thought the original was too abrasive for your tastes, consider giving this remix a chance. Sure, there’s still Kanye’s incessant screaming, but Miley’s sample of singing Tears For Fears’ ‘Everybody Wants To Rule The World’ really mellows out this track. Oh, and it goes without saying that the refresh on the production has the same effect as well (think more horn-y, less drum heavy at times).
Was the ‘Black Skinhead’ remix worth the wait?
