James Blake Remixes Beyonce's 'Drunk In Love'
The Best New Artist GRAMMY nominee starts off with a sample that sounds a but like "Oh Yeah" (aka the Ferris Bueller song), then focuses on warping the vocals of the song's bridge. Those high-pitched Middle Eastern chants on the original are now deep, static groans.
On the show, Blake — who's set to play NYC's Governors Ball this summer — also premiered a new song of his own called "40455," an R&B slow jam that halfway through goes silent to become an even more soulful track that has Blake asking, "What were you thinking about 40455?" Check out the remix here.
