The Weeknd - Wanderlust (Snakehips Remix)

This might be the closest we ever get to replicating the genius of MJ. As we all know, although the Weeknd shares similarly #blessed pipes to the king, he has a tendency to be a whiny bitch in his music. Not that I don't dig that, but comonn there's only so many times you can sing emotionally about an empty bottle of Bacardi. Like, did your dog die? NO. You ran out of rum, so stop pretending your life is over and go to the liquor store dumbass. This is why I thank Snakehips for his treatment of "Wanderlust," in which a peppy, hell downright funKAYYYY vibe is established. Really everything about this remix is better than the original, including some background claps, groovy synths, and an all around disco / underwater vibe. It's almost as if this spirit of MJ is with us. Almost.
