Teyana Taylor’s ‘Gonna Love Me’ Remix Is the Best Wu-Tang Song in Ages

In an alternate world, Teyana Taylor’s Okay.T.S.E. could be a widely known spotlight of 2018, and the most effective of the crop of Kanye West–produced albums from the start of the summer time. In that very same alternate world, Kanye’s antics wouldn't have overshadowed Taylor’s very strong, very low-key work. Prior to proper now, this alternate world looks like a purely hypothetical train in utopian want achievement, besides how else can we clarify the existence of this remix of “Gonna Love Me,” that includes Wu-Tang’s Ghostface, Method Man, and Raekwon.

This model of “Gonna Love Me” — melancholy, unassuming, and delightful — is miles forward of the opposite Wu-Tang showcase from earlier this month. That music, a seeming train in want achievement by Logic, was overly lengthy, form of boring, and handled the members of Wu-Tang like baseball playing cards. He collected all of them, however to what finish? “Gonna Love Me” feels extra thought by — Raekwon and Ghostface are already a traditional pairing, and Method Man in his prime excelled at unhappy, dusky love songs like this.

In current years, Kanye’s manufacturing has taken a again seat to his movie star and conceptual bombast, but it surely’s price remembering that he's a grasp at flipping soul loops, or letting them trip out for simply lengthy sufficient to get his level throughout. In this manner, he's not not like RZA, the Wu-Tang architect who modified rap manufacturing endlessly. This remix isn’t going to interrupt down the complete web, but it surely feels like classic Wu-Tang, and that’s nice.
