The title of B.o.B.‘s newest buzz track will certainly turn a few heads; the last artist anyone would expect the ATLien to collaborate with is rehabbed singer Amy Winehouse. Before you begin to prepare for the apocalypse, however, it would behoove you to know that the feature on Grip Your Body is actually just a sample from Amy’s ‘03 debut single, Stronger Than Me. Don’t feel cheated though; flawless sampling and B.o.B.‘s unique swagger and wordplay should keep listeners focused on Atlanta’s top buzz worthy artist. While Grip Your Body might not be groundbreaking in the realm of collaborations, it nevertheless makes for a song that has great appeal on both sides of the pond.
