Katy Perry’s newest single and latest Billboard Top 10 hit, “Chained to the Rhythm” is making waves (100 million+ views on YouTube in just a month) and Lil Yachty has taken upon himself to hop in his boat and ride them (with her approval, of course).
Whereas the original version employs a bubbly ode-to-the-80s melody, the “Chained to the Rhythm (Lil Boat Remix)” slows down the BPM to comfortably groove down trap’s highway. Given her ridiculous success with her 2013’s “Dark House” (which also featured Academy Award-winner Juicy J), it’s a wonder Perry and her trusted pack of producers didn’t experiment and shoot this route out the gate.
Hindsight is always 20/20 and so is this bullseye of a rap/pop collaboration. Listen above.
