Music and entertainment maverick Jermaine Dupri continues to diversify his discography with new releases this year, including his latest offering, the remix to German producer/DJ Kurd Maverick’s “Hell Yeah.”
Released earlier this month, the electro dance track features an aggressive bassline and JD’s signature vocals in the chorus. “With the ‘Hell Yeah’ remix, I’m doing pretty much what I’ve always done to records,” says Dupri, “which is take a record that I like and remix it.”
Dupri, who has a DJ residency in Las Vegas, as well as regular shows around the globe, maintains that songs like “Hell Yeah” dominate clubs outside the U.S. and are in the same vein as massive dance-pop hits such as Calvin Harris’ “We Found Love” feat Rihanna and the David Guetta-produced “I Gotta Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas.
“Every week, I’m in all these clubs that are infusing hip hop and electro music,” he says. “I’m constantly seeing these two worlds collide, so I felt like it would be a great collaboration to bring my vocals and celebrity to ‘Hell Yeah.’”
