Yall know what I miss? Those good ole 90s remixes. Not the “let’s throw a rapper on it and call it a remix” trend that only seems to occur these days. I’m talking those remixes that sounded like a completely different song.
One of those Bad Boy/So So Def remixes that was so hot that it turned into a brand new single with a banging new music video to go along with it.
Child, in the 90s, the remix was everything! It even went into the early 2000s but started to die out after that. Those remixes dominated radio as well as BET and MTV.
Mary J. Blige and Mariah Carey were the ultimate remix queens. Mary even dropped a remix album.
Yall remember that? I think most people probably get more excited over her remix to “Love No Limit” than they do the original version.
Hell, there are some songs from back in the day where the remix was the only version that mattered!
“Right Here” – SWV
“Ignition” – R. Kelly
“I’m Real” – Jennifer Lopez
“No, No, No” – Destiny’s Child
“Best Of Me” – Mya (who even remembers the original version of “Best of Me” besides the old school Mya stans???)
This list could go on and on.
So, for Flashback Friday, let’s take a moment and pay our respects to the gone, but certainly not forgotten, 90s remix. ♪♪♪
I included some videos below to some of my favorite old school remixes. What were some of your fave remixes from back in the day? Toddley wants to know.
This says “Ladies Night,” but real musicheads know that it’s actually the remix to Lil’s Kim’s “Not Tonight.”
