Unless you’ve been living under a rock recently, you’ve probably heard Beyonce’s hit single Drunk in Love. However, something you may not have heard is The Weeknd’s amazing remix. Abel Tesfaye, who is known by his stage name The Weeknd, is not the first artist to attempt a remix of Drunk in Love with the likes of Kanye West and Diplo also making their mark on the popular song. His remix was released on his 24th birthday; the 16th of February.
What makes this remix more impressive than the other however, is Tesfaye’s smooth vocals and spin on the original beat. This remix becomes an ode to his drug use and past experiences, giving the song a unique perspective that has no trouble standing along side the original.
