Rihanna’s “Kiss It Better” is transformed by Montreal beatmaker, Kaytranada.
KAYTRANADA is giving Rihanna’s ANTI single “Kiss It Better” a makeover. Over a dance floor-ready beat, the Canadian producer uses the song’s original vocals to create a different effect while maintaining its catchy essence.
KAYTRA spoke with Zane Lowe about the revamp on Beats 1. “I probably had it on repeat,” he said. “I really love the song, but I really wanted to remix it and I had this idea of you heard it previously, how it sounded. It’s hard to explain…I just think about it and then, boom!”
This is a glimpse into what KAYTRANADA’s capable of crafting, which he showed more of on 99.9% earlier this month. That album featured appearances by Craig David, Vic Mensa, Phonte, and Anderson .Paak, among a slew of others.
He is already working on his next project, 0.01%. “I’m coming up with a mixtape,” he told Lowe. “0.01% it’s on it’s way. It’s gonna be wild.”
In March, RiRi dropped the “Kiss It Better” music video and shortly before that, Miguel teased his own remix.
