Back in ‘85, Zapp & Roger could hardly have predicted how quickly Computer Love would become a reality. I don’t know if I’ll ever get used to the idea that digital love (and lust) isn’t exclusively the domain of people too unattractive to venture outside, but, regardless of how I feel about the matter, the times are a-changin—for yet more proof of how mainstream “cybering” has become, take a listen to the official remix of Lil’ Kim‘s current single, Download. Originally featured as the lead single off DJ Envy‘s It’s Moovin and subsequently chosen for inclusion on Kim’s forthcoming Vintage LP, the track is back with a few revisions—T-Pain‘s beat and hook are left as-is (along with R&B vet Charlie Wilson‘s backing vocals), but The-Dream steps up to the mic to deliver a brand new verse, as does tech-savvy hip-popster Soulja Boy. It’s not a drastic change from the original, but those who liked the track the first time around (okay, the second, counting Computer Love) won’t be disappointed by this revamp. Keep it locked to our frontpage for release details on Vintage, Kim’s fifth studio album.
