Wiz Khalifa puts his own spin on The Chainsmokers “Closer”
It’s no secret that The Chainsmokers’ collaboration with Halsey has become one of the biggest tracks of both of their careers, having already topped the Billboard charts and been performed live at the VMAs. And as with any worldwide hit, artists are always dying to put their own spit on it. In the dance music world, we usually see producers do this by remixing tracks and keeping the original vocals, but in this case, Wiz Khalifa does the opposite by adding his own lyrics to the instrumental of ”Closer’‘.
The rapper took to Twitter to share footage from his recent performance at Okeechobee Music Festival, where he flips the lyrics to “Closer” and adds his signature Hip-Hop touch. The cross-genre result actually works surprisingly well, adding a fresh new dimension to the five-time platinum record. Whilst there is no official confirmation that the remix will even be officially released, it will certainly work well at live shows, as evident from the footage below.
