Joell Ortiz ft. Novel - Call Me (Remix)

Posted 6 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Statik Selektah
Album:
Free Agent

With an impressive four-star average reader rating, the original version of Free Agent lead single Call Me most definitely falls into the “if it ain’t broke” category, but listeners shouldn’t begrudge three musicians as talented as Joell Ortiz, Novel, and Statik Selektah the opportunity to bend a few rules – especially when the result is as fresh as this official remix. While Ortiz’ wistfully nostalgic verses are left untouched, Statik gives the track’s production a major overhaul, trading Novel’s soul samples for a chillier blend of old-school beats. Topped off with three slightly-revised hooks from the ATL renaissance man, this revamp will undoubtedly stir up some rousing debate amongst our readers. Have the collaborators succeeded in topping the acclaimed original? Whichever version you prefer, you’ll want to keep it locked for the latest on Ortiz’ sophomore studio album, which has yet to receive a solid release date.
