Happy birthday, Aaliyah..
Sadly, as we know, the R&B singer tragically passed away in 2001 shortly after the release of her self-titled third album, which is now hailed as one of the best R&B albums of all time.
In honour of the late icon, producer and remixer Amorphous has released “Work The Boat” on SoundCloud, a brilliant mash-up of Aaliyah’s “Rock The Boat” and Rihanna’s huge 2016 smash “Work.”
The mash-up uses Boi-1da’s minimalistic production from “Work” to allow Aaliyah’s vocals to set the sensual mood, while keeping the island vibes of baby girl’s original.
It’s a pairing you’d never think of but after the first listen it’ll seem such an obvious choice.
Amorphous clearly has en ear for it, as his mash-up “Needed Me In A Million” (Rih’s “Needed Me” over Aaliyah’s “One In A Million”) did the rounds on social media last month.
The talented 19-year-old’s SoundCloud is filled with genius remixes and mash-ups that’ll have you grooving for hours, like his incredible remix of Aaliyah’s “One In A Million” – listen below.
