Alicia Keys Releases ‘Show Me Love’ Remix With 21 Savage And Miguel
Alicia Keys Show Me Love Remix: If, when Alicia Keys released her single ‘Show Me Love‘ with Miguel back in September, we had said that there would be a remix of the single featuring 21 Savage, some people might have been quite shocked by it. But they shouldn’t be, because the rapper showed his versatility in terms of subject matter even way back on his breakout project Savage Mode with Metro Boomin.
This afternoon, Alicia Keys releases the official remix with 21 adding a verse to the start of the record. He did a good job of not sounding out of place but adding his own flavour to it too. You can hear it below via YouTube, Apple Music, Spotify or TIDAL.
While 21 Savage might initially sound like an odd choice for an Alicia Keys remix, he has shown a great ability to adapt to different musical moods. After all, this is the man who hopped on Normani’s extremely poppy “Motivation” last week. The Atlanta rapper also displayed a willingness to get introspective and even test out his singing chops on his last album, I Am > I Was. This remix comes at the perfect time, as all the stars seem to be aligning to usher in Savage’s return.
For the “Show Me Love” remix, Savage opts for a heavily-autotuned approach while he fittingly dives into romantic matters. The only change from the original wasn’t solely the added rap verse at the beginning. The version that was shared early in September was stripped-back and didn’t have any percussion. The remix is loaded with 808s and other drums with interesting textures. Alicia and Miguel’s buttery vocals layered over each other still give the song a homey feel.
Miguel also dropped a new song, “Funeral“, last Friday.
