Rae Sremmurd took their single “Look Alive” to the next level by inviting Atlanta trio Migos to help them remix it.
Melodically and rhythmically, there’s not much different between the original and the newest version featuring Quavo, Takeoff and Offset, but each of Migo’s three rappers contributed a new verse, lending the chill song a slightly harder edge thanks in part to the increased number of NSFW language that peppers their lyrics (via Idolator). There’s still just one rule no matter who’s rapping: “Kill my cup, not my vibe.”
The single’s cover art looks to take a page out of E.T., showing Rae Sremmurd and Migos in silhouette as their bikes launch into the sky. It’s a strong collab from the two rap groups, and shows the potential for more to come.
In early July, Migos released their newest mixtape 3 Way. Rae Sremmurd’s newest album SremmLife 2, which includes “Look Alive,” drops August 12.
