Booth readers welcomed will.i.am and Britney Spears’ collab Scream & Shout with a lukewarm reaction, giving the song an average of two stars. While the club anthem did appear on the December 3, DJBooth R&B/Pop Chart, it only reached number 17. Maybe Hit-Boy, who recently remixed the club anthem, can help change your opinion? Catering to an all-star emcee guest lineup of Lil Wayne, Diddy, and Wacka Flocka Flame, the hitmaking producer gives the track a hip-hop makeover that better suits the energetic styles of all three guests. Does this rap friendly remix change you opinion of the tune, or is it destined for mediocrity? Share your two cents below, and keep it locked for all the latest from the huge names attached to the record.
