Janelle Monae x Big Boi "Tightrope" (Oliver Nelson Remix)

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Swedish producer Oliver Nelson drops a buzzing synthy remix of Janelle Monae's "Tightrope" - the smash single from her LP The ArchAndroid (Suites II and III) featuring Big Boi. The single is a bouncing take on the original that is so bright it almost grins at you. This track drops just in time for the weather to break. The release is a great byproduct of good timing as this joint sounds primed for your everyday summertime street fest. Oliver Nelson has crafted a ball of electricity fueled by pop and the soulful pulsating groove of the euro dance aesthetic to deliver a truly refreshing take on the 2010 original. Check it out!
