CORRECTION: Alex Newell – Nobody to Love

Just found out that the post I made for Nobody to Love on Saturday was incorrect.

The new version of “Nobody to Love” is a cover of Sigma with the artist credited as Alex Newell – “Nobody to Love” and will be released on Atlantic Records.

Apologies for errors. The post has been updated with correct artist and label info and artwork.

SONG OF THE DAY:  Alex Newell – Nobody to Love

Following yesterday’s “Perfect Lady” writeup, let’s go back to another sample track that’s been huge in the UK and is making its way over to the US.  Drum and bass producers Sigma took two lines from Kanye West’s “Bound 2” and used it for the drop for an explosive bootleg aptly called “Nobody To Love.”  Massive support from DJs and radio led them to make an official version with a someone resinging the part of Charlie Wilson, which became a number one UK pop hit.  The remixes transformed the track to fit many tastes – synth-pop (Grum), retro-house (Jakwob), stadium (Third Party), and baseline house (TS7).  For the US release on Atlantic records, it was rerecorded as a cover version by Alex Newell (singer from Glee) with a new house mix by Freshup and Harley that clocks in at 114BPM and keeps the vocals sounding just like the original.  I bet it would mix perfectly with the Solidisco mix of the original Kanye track.
