Big Boi is no stranger to production influenced by pop and alternative rock, evidenced by the collaborators from across the music spectrum that he worked with on his last album, Vicious Lies and Rumors.
Now he’s ditched rap beats entirely, appearing on a remix of Maroon 5’s sky-scraping pop hit “Animals.”
Big Boi takes the opportunity to sing the praises of a special someone in his life. “I run my fingers over that cleavage like I’m reading brail/ she’s the leading lady in every one of my freaky tales,” he raps. “Loyal and royal she earned her crown and throne/ ride or die to the fullest/ a house is not home/ When she’s gone, gone, gone.”
Maroon 5 already teamed up with J. Cole for a previous remix to the song.
