Dillon Francis and DJ Snake's single "Get Low" just got a hip-hop remix from hot up-and-comers Rae Sremmurd. The "No Type" rappers hopped on the tune from the "Set Me Free" and "Turn Down for What" DJs, adding a party-starting verse in the build of the Middle Eastern-influenced club record. The pair wisely implored listeners to be kind to each other, saying in their measured tempo "don't throw shade, throw parties" before shrilly speeding things up as the track crescendos into the drop.
The vocals do not particularly add much to the song, as it had some of its own, albeit minimal. Rae Sremmurd added a different vibe and looked to make this track a crossover hit in the hip-hop world in a similar manner that "Turn Down for What" was able to become a massive pop culture phenomenon with the aid of Lil Jon.
The remix comes just at a time when "Get Low" is having a resurgence of its own. It was originally released in February 2014 and then included in his October album Money Sucks, Friends Rule. "Get Low" has been a central part of the Furious 7 soundtrack and promotion, being featured in the TV and online trailers and then earning a coveted spot on the soundtrack. The film made a $147 million debut in the United States and grossed $245 million internationally without China, Japan or Russia, where it will open in the next few weeks.
It has also been recently featured in a national Taco Bell commercial, where an old woman flashes her partner in their vehicle as they eat a new sandwich.
It currently sits at No. 22 on the U.S. iTunes overall single charts, with only Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again" being the only other soundtrack single higher.
