Cam’ron Gets Lovey-Dovey on Para One’s ‘Every Little Thing’ Remix
Harlem rapper sets aside his trance party fixations for sweet-talking bass ballad
While everyone is (rightly, probably) stoked about Daft Punk and Nile Rodgers working together, theirs is hardly the only Paris/New York collaboration of note this week. The French electro producer Para One, of Parisian hip-hop trio TTC, has hooked up with Harlem’s Cam’ron for a new remix of “Every Little Thing,” off Para One’s 2012 album Passion. The song is a springy, bleepy slice of nouveau G-funk, and it features Irfane and Teki Latex crooning in lovably nerdy Lothario mode; Cam makes the most of his 24 bars, tying up swagger, self-deprecation, Twitter and Instagram shout-outs, and a variety of dubious lovemaking metaphors (“I wanna get it cooking like a barbecue”; “Like my car, I’m starting you”) into a tidy little valentine. Forget about #swag, we’re talking #S.W.A.K.
The full EP is out on Marble/Because Music on March 25, backed with remixes from Girl Unit and Canblaster. Put that Dipset Trance Party on hold and check out Cam’ron in wine-‘em-and-dine-‘em mode over on SoundCloud.
