The Brooklyn dancehall maestro adds vocals to one of his finest riddims.
Last summer, Dre Skull’s ‘Loudspeaker Riddim’ was released with four dancehall voicings, with Beenie Man, Popcaan, Natalie Storm and soca artist Machel Montano each offering a take on the jubilant beat.
On ‘First Time’, Purity Ring’s Megan James (in her first appearance outside the dreamy duo) adds a serving of bubblegum to the ‘Loudspeaker Riddim’, taking the song in a tropical-pop direction; Popcaan rejoins for a verse, as well.
Stream it below; the single will be released with a VIP version of the original riddim. The Mixpak boss is no stranger to collaborations, having produced Vybz Kartel’s Kingston Story and working with Major Lazer.
