Questlove, Black Thought & Charli XCX Rework Deee-Lite's Classic "Groove Is In The Heart"
Questlove, Black Thought and Charli XCX joined forces to give Deee-Lite's '90 classic "Groove Is In The Heart" a proper reworking; another very Okayplayerish TV spot added to a run of at least 3 or 4 that come to mind in the last year alone. It's about as precise of a repackaging as you'd hope, leaving the groove right where it was by merely adding a vocal from the British popstress and a few ad libs from Questo and Tariq, not to mention cleaning up the track a bit with a some new layers of snaps and claps on top of an already tight snare. The rework was fit to a Target ad that aired during last night's historic 40th anniversary special for Saturday Night Live. While Q-Tip and Bootsy Collins are no where to be found, Questo and Thought prove to be more than worthy subs on this playful update. You can watch Target's TV spot, featuring the freshly reworked version of "Groove Is In The Heart" by Questlove, Black Thought and Charli XCX below. We'll be sure to let you know if a full cut of the track is ever made available.
