It actually makes perfect sense that Juicy J would remix a Passion Pit track, especially one that is so clearly about substance abuse and failing relationships, two things that J has likely had experience with himself. The reworking is smooth and remarkably sweet for a rapper whose most recent famous line is about his affinity for “ratchet pussy.“
The remix leaves Michael Angelakos’ sung parts completely intact and adds Juicy’s verses in alongside these, dovetailing the two narratives nicely. Also kind of sick of the idea that rappers and rockstars being friends is unheard of or insane… they are in the same field of work why would it be so weird for them to meet, establish relationships and want to create art together?
