Kaytranada has shared a new remix of Normani’s Cardi B collaboration, “Wild Side.”
The new remix follows Kaytranada’s three-song EP, Intimidated, which came out on Friday (November 19th). The new version is a bit more upbeat than the sultry original, but this one’s got a bit of a darker twist. With Kaytra’s quintessential pulsing melodies, this version of “Wild Side” is sure to get you dancing.
“Oh snap, my Wild Side remix is out now,” Kaytranada wrote on Twitter.
Listen to Kaytranada’s remix of “Wild Side” below.
The Kaytranada remix of “Wild Side” comes just a few weeks after the track peaked at number one on the urban radio chart. In October, the track was certified gold but the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).”
Kaytra’s “Wild Side” remix feels like it could come from his Intimidated EP. That collection featured some killer collaborations with H.E.R., Thundercat, and Mach-Hommy.
His H.E.R. collaboration, “Intimidated” is a danceable, beat-driven track. “Be Careful (feat. Thundercat)” is definitely not a let down either. The artists find the perfect balance between their sounds, leaning into Kaytra’s electronic sound and Thundercat’s funky soul groove. The Mach-Hommy collaboration, “$payforhaiti,” is the smoothest of the three new Kaytranada tracks. The song feels like it could be played anywhere from a hip art gallery to a packed club.
Here’s hoping that this “Wild Side” remix brings some Kaytranada-Normani collaborations in the future.
If you’re hoping to see Kaytranada live, you can catch him at History in Toronto on December 29th and 30th.
