One day after Bruno Mars unleashed his Cardi B-assisted "Finesse (Remix)," Florida-based producer Amorphous has taken it upon himself to create his own remix the track. He's added some very special "features," too.
For his version the song, Amorphous included verses from Nicki Minaj's (Diddy's "Hello, Good Morning (Remix)") Left Eye (Donnell Jones' "What's Up"), Lil Kim ("Crush on You (Remix)"), Foxy Brown ("Case"), Missy Elliott ("Get Ur Freak On"), Lauryn Hill ("Doo Wop (That Thing)") and Queen Latifah ("Black Hand Side"). Needless to say, the resulting mashup is an epic one.
Pretty much everyone fits in perfectly with the very 1990s-centric remix, which shouldn't be surprising for acts like Latifah, Foxy and Lauryn Hill, who themselves dominated the '90s. Enjoy it, because this is probably the only way you'll be hearing Kim and Nicki on the same track any time soon—even if it is a mashup.
The original remix, which was presented alongside an In Living Color-inspired visual, has been a big success so far, with everyone hurling praise in Bruno and Bardi's direction. For her part, Cardi tweeted out her thanks yesterday (Jan. 4).
"I wish i can make a video thanking everybody for the Amazing feedback but most importantly Bruno Mars for giving me this opportunity," wrote Cardi, whose first three Billboard Hot 100 singles are in the chart's top 10 simultaneously. ""Unfortunately i cant , I got a crazy allergic reaction and i look like a blowfish ?? MAKE SURE YOU GET FINESSE AVAILABLE NOW !"
