This past February, DJBooth featured Jean Grae‘s new single, Love Thirst. Three months later, a remix has arrived with Busta Rhymes, who is hoping to quench even more of that thirst. Toning down his typically fast-paced flow, Busta complements Jean’s aphrodisiac tone (her spoken-word cadence is more soothing than other femcees) and 9th Wonder‘s equally fitting beat, adding mainstream appeal to Grae’s “conscious rap fan” audience. Either way, Love Thirst is the perfect choice for anyone in the mood for “chill” music. Jeanius, Grae’s highly-anticipated new album, drops later this month off Talib Kweli’s Blacksmith Records and their distributor, Warner Bros.
