Last Friday Kanye West surprised the music world with the release of track Real Friends, an early cut from upcoming album Swish. Fans rejoiced as this will be the start of a new chain of G.O.O.D. Fridays releases, where the altruistic Yeezy will share a new track each Friday in the lead up to the albums release on February 11. The promotional musical giveaways first sprang up in the lead up to the rapper’s 2010 album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and returned with announcements by Kim Kardashian on January 8th.
If new music from Yeezy wasn’t enough for you, the track has now been given the soul treatment by the legendary Erykah Badu. Her remix, titled Trill Friends: Badu Whodouni Rough Mix melds the West track with phrases from Whodini‘s 1984 track Friends.
She put the track up on her Soundcloud along with the caption:
JUST ride out to this… What up Yeezy? BADU MESSIN ROUND THIS MORNIN (really suppose be recording something else …) presently in the BADUDIO w/ ZACH WITNESS. From the forth coming mixtape, THIS $h!t TOO EASY.
The track is a killer piece of chill in its own right, and definitely worth a few spins. It follows on from her recent reworking of Drake’s Hotline Bling, which featured on her late 2015 mixtape But You Can’t Use My Phone.
