Hey, remember when we brought you this ‘official remix’ of I.Y.A.Z.’ Replay, featuring club-rapper extraordinaire Flo Rida? Well, turns out we spoke too soon – it seems that the Virgin Islands-bred singer has decided to roll with this version of the megahit single (which recently hit #1 on Billboard‘s Pop Chart). The songwriting masterminds behind Replay, Da Spokesman and Don’t Talk Much of Rock City, get their chance to shine on this revamp – their lightly Caribbean-accented vocals sound right at home over J.R. Rotem‘s synth-driven boardwork, as do those of I.Y.A.Z. label boss, Sean Kingston. A less obvious but equally dope selection, West Coast revivalist Nipsey Hussle rises to the occasion with a sexed-up verse on the front end, and Bizzy Bone rounds out the guest lineup, showcasing his inimitable sing-rapped vocal stylings later in the track. I.Y.A.Z.’ debut set has yet to receive a title or release date, but the chart-smashing success of Replay should ensure it hits store shelves sooner than later. In the meantime, fans should be sure to check out I.Y.A.Z.’ recent, Booth-exclusive interview with DJ Z.
