Plenty of songs get ‘remixed’ each week, but few actually qualify as true remixes. Since a remix is defined as an alternative version of a song, different from the original version, slapping on a guest rap verse that is 16 bars long simply doesn’t cut it. Clearly Trey Songz understands this concept and on Can’t Help But Wait he scraps the beat and his original vocals, in addition to adding Weezy F. Baby for those aforementioned 16 bars. The timing of the release is suspect, Atlantic just released Trey’s new single Last Time to radio, but planning aside it could go mano e mano with the original and clearly is up to par with the best material Songz has released in his young career.
