Well Growns, we have to be honest and tell you that we had NO intention of posting SZA’s “The Weekend” in it’s original form, BUT there is something about a good remix that takes us back a couple decades to when a jam was a jam… and then it was even more of a jam once the remix came out. Ahh… “Always Be My Baby” by Mariah Carey, “One More Chance” by The Notorious B.I.G. and “Flava In Ya Ear” by Craig Mack are just a few tight remixes that immediately come to mind.

Calvin Harris’ remix of SZA’s “The Weekend” is a testament to what a good producer… not just a beat maker… can do. A producer interprets the song and has a vision of what direction it should take. In this case, Harris reinterpreted the song. He added that bounce underneath the track with what sounds like a bit of Herb Alpert’s “Rise” and now, the song is not only tolerable… but good. Makes us wanna go skating. Couples’ skate, anyone… just as long as we don’t have to share partners.
