The Original: "Locked Up," by Akon
The Remix: "Locked Up," by Akon, featuring Styles P
The Outcome: Word has it producer Knobody (of Jay-Z's "Can't Knock the Hustle" and Big Pun's "Still Not A Player" fame) knew "Locked Up" was destined to be a breakthrough single for 'Kon. So after recording the original, he brought up the idea of tinkering with the beat slightly and adding an artist like Styles P to the record. Good call, sir.
