I just stumbled upon a great acoustic mashup of The Weeknd’s “Wicked Games” and Wiz Khalifa’s “Remember You”, which also features Canadian R&B singer The Weeknd. Maybe that’s one reason why these two songs match so greatly. The other one is the undeniable talent of singer Leanne Robinson, who came up with this great mashup.
The singer from Britain kills with precision, a soulful voice filled with pain and emotion and most definitely her natural gift. She also finds a way to close the song with “Remember Me”, which brings us back to the 1997 Blue Boy dance track and was used last year too in the Daley song with the same name. The Blue Boy sample originally stems from the classic Marlena Shaw soul song “Woman in the Ghetto”. So you see how many different influences have been mashed together here.
