Diplo and Grandtheft remix Rihanna’s BBHMM
By Jon Hersh
I wasn’t crazy about Rihanna’s BBHMM when it first was released. The aggressiveness of the lyrics and especially the title wasn’t matched in the production, resulting in a crudeness seemingly born from desperation rather than pure street pugnaciousness. And nothing’s more damaging to a pop-track than inauthenticity.
Perhaps sensing an opportunity, Diplo and Grandtheft give the track a full street makeover. This is why remixes exist. Because sometimes a track is just a work in a progress. Hear the full track on Diplo’s Soundcloud.
