Holy Sh*t You Need to Hear Skrillex & Chance The Rapper's "Show Me Love"

We're not going to waste your time without anything less than music you NEED to hear. You need to hear this Skrillex and Chance joint.

You don’t need me to tell you that there's a massive amount of music waiting for you to pay attention to it. Studies have shown that approximately 11 billion new songs are released on the internet every day, which is a fact I just made up but feels true. With so much to hear, it's not just easy to miss some truly great music, it's literally impossible to listen to it all. 

Welcome to Holy Sh*t You Need To Hear This, a brand new series where we'll highlight only the most outstanding music you can’t afford to miss. Not just good music, not really good music, only the music that makes us genuinely grab everyone within reach and say, "Holy shit, you need to hear this." 

You might find the most anticipated records from the biggest artists in the world, you might find an undiscovered gem from someone you’ve never heard of. The song might have dropped five minutes ago, it might have dropped in the '90s. We may run a song a day for a week, we may go a week without a single entry. The only thing that matters is the holy shit factor, your time's too valuable to waste with anything less.

And lets kick off the series with Skrillex’s newly-released remix of “Show Me Love,” a record from Hundred Waters’ 2014 album The Moon Rang Like A Bell that was later used in a Coca-Cola ad promoting positivity online, which makes sense as this remix is comparable to injecting yourself with a shot of liquid joy.

To be completely honest, I know next to nothing about Hundred Waters, Moses Sumney or Robin Hannibal, which is a shame. A brief Google search tells me that they are, respectively, a band from Gainesville, FL signed to Skrillex’s OWSLA label, an LA-based singer/songwriter, and a multi-instrumentalist/producer best known as one half of both R&B duo Rhye and neo-soul pair Quadron. 

Skrillex and Chance The Rapper, on the other hand, I’m very familiar with. Skrillex is a forward-thinking, GRAMMY-winning electronic artist constantly reinventing his own sound, and Chance is one of the most consistently exciting voices in hip-hop today, currently on a 2016 streak of show-stealing guest verses. You’ll find no brain-melting beat drop from Skrillex here, only a smooth, yet anthemic reworking of the original song, dripping with a reassuring warmth throughout the new version’s four-minute runtime.

Skrillex also makes his directorial debut with this video, and so it exists in his world, one that seems to consist entirely of unbridled joy, high fives, writing in the sand with giant crayons and spontaneous dancing. There's a dog, a cameo from DeJ Loaf and a lot of hanging out under a bridge - basically, everything you could ask for, right? As with the song itself, there is a complete lack of negative energy, and the complete experience is one that hits you squarely in the feels.

Holy shit, I can't stop listening to this record. Holy shit you need to hear it, too.
