A feature can be used for two different things in music: as an accessory or as an adjacent to the main artist. While neither purpose is diminishing, the latter has produced some irreplicable tracks in the past. Monica and Brandy’s “The Boy Is Mine” and the preceding Michael Jackson-Paul McCartney “The Girl Is Mine” are both popular and quintessential tracks that fit this mold. A very particular brand of chemistry is required for the formula to work, with varying results diluting the effectiveness of this approach. In her newly released remix with 347aidan, Tate McRae pushes all the right buttons to bring the track to its fullest potential. Released earlier this year on her debut album, "i’m so gone" is a defiant anthem aimed at those who suppress her aspirations; “Don’t be calling my name when I’m so gone, I hope that you hate it,” she sings on the chorus after hurling insulting truths at her target.
A standout upon the release of May’s i used to think i could fly, all that was missing from the song was an opposing perspective. Stepping into this role, 347aidan’s lyrics and tone accurately fit the profile McRae portrays in her verses. Subdued with some underlying passion, his account of the relationship gives the complete picture “i’m so gone” was lacking before. The remix is the second to come from McRae’s debut i used to think i could fly, as she teamed up with Galantis for a new rendition of what would you do? Listen below as 347aidan gears up for an official release of new single "so what!" this Friday.
