Lil Yachty grabs a chance to expresses himself on a remix of Katy Perry’s “Chained to the Rhythm.” The teenage Atlanta rapper drops in with an Auto-Tuned solo vocal for the “Boat Remix”, which is re-imagined with a fresh beat and flourishes of production ear candy.
“Chained to the beat now/Feelin’ good, got good vibes/I can feel it in my feet now/Take a shot, baby, loosen up/You the star of the scene now/I went from readin’ magazines to being on the cover/Get up in the groove now/Let me see you move now,” the 19-year-old MC raps. Yachty also gives Perry a proper shout out in the third verse: “I love you, Katy!”
“Chained to the Rhythm” is the first track from Perry’s upcoming fourth album release, and her first single proper in six months. The single has a peak position of No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. Lil Yachty is also in release mode; his debut studio album Teenage Emotions is due out this year.
