The response to Ms. “Cross me and I will bust your windows” Jazmine Sullivan’s latest song Holding You Down (Goin’ in Circles) has been overwhelmingly positive – DJBooth nation gave it four stars – so you know that that means, right? Yep, a Swizz Beatz remix! And you know what that means, right? Yep, although Swizz holds true to the original’s old-school sample base, we’re now treated to the occasional air horn blast, looped percussion and shouted ad-lib. I can’t help but feel like it’s a step in the wrong direction, but the inclusion of the immortal Mary J. Blige is more than enough to make up for it. It’s amazing to hear the woman who set the foundation for the modern wronged-woman R&B ballad and one of young female r&b’s brightest hopes on the same track. This is truly a historic occasion. But will the Booth hold down the remix as strongly as they did the original? We’ll find out soon. Regardless, fans should be on the lookout for Sullivan’s upcoming album Love Me Back, coming October 5.
