The Rapper: Kendrick Lamar
The Song: “Animals” by Martin Garrix
Why It Would Work: Garrix and Lamar both one thing in common: they are both relatively new to fame, but managed to reach mass acclaim is record time. By combining both artists’ fan bases, the EDM and rap newbies could make a legendary remix.
The R&B Singer: Jessie Ware
The Song: “The Spark” by Afrojack
Why It Would Work: Ms. Ware already has major experience in this department so she might as well pair with an EDM superstar, right? Make it a duet between the British singer-songwriter and Spree Wilson, with Ware singing the chorus, it will spark a big hit.
The R&B Singer: Jhene Aiko
The Song: “So Good To Me” by Chris Malinchak
Why It Would Work: The combination of Jhene Aiko and Chris Malinchak’s voices in this song would blend seamlessly. This song hasn’t picked up major traction on the US charts. Thus, the rising R&B vocalist could help promote it, whilst giving her fans some more ear candy before her debut album releases in May.
The R&B Singer: Miguel
The Song: “Revolution” by Diplo
Why It Would Work: Imagine Miguel and Canadian singer-songwriter Kai switching off verses on Diplo’s single, “Revolution.” Now that would be something of a musical revolution. Miguel’s lungpower could push the track onto mainstream radio and beyond.
The Rapper: Childish Gambino
The Song: “Shave It Up” by Zedd
Why It Would Work: Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover has experience in this field, working with Flux Pavilion on “Do Or Die.” His skills would be on par for the collab course with one of Zedd’s earlier works.
