Last year, the gifted South African singer, Shekhinah dropped her stunning debut album, Rose Gold — which was one of our favourite 2017 releases. While a lot of the songs off the album were great, it's lead single, "Suited" was definitely a standout.
Now, Mr Eazi and Synx — an upcoming Nigerian producer and sound engineer — have joined Shekhinah on the remix of the track, and it's honestly a lot better than we expected it to be.
With Synx giving the remix more of an afropop feel, Mr Eazi is able to fit right in. The original track, which found Shekhinah singing about her solid relationship with her partner, still retains that theme of undying love.
As great as Synx's production is (his work here is revelatory), the remix's biggest surprise is definitely how good Mr Eazi sounds alongside Shekhinah. He even manages to match the song's theme without losing the plot.
While Mr Eazi has been impossible to miss this year — it feels like he's been on about 50% of the tracks released in the past couple months — his work on this remix is definitely the best thing he's done in a long time. We hope he stays on this level for the rest of the year.
