You’ve heard Migos, but never like this before.
The Atlanta trio has recorded new versions of their hits—with a live symphony orchestra. During the taping, hosted by AudiomackLive (via The FADER), the city’s biggest rap trio—who was just a duo this time around (Offset remains in jail and did not appear with Quavo and Takeoff)—were asked to perform their hits including “Hannah Montana,” “Handsome and Wealthy,” and “One Time” with Atlanta classical musicians.
As for the musicians, they appear in interviews before the performance seeming rather confused about what they’re about to do. Several profess their ignorance about who Migos is, and say they never expected to do anything like this with their classical music training.
When asked who her favorite composers are, one of the musicians replies “Beethoven” before the interviewer asks, “Do you know who Zaytoven is?” However, the orchestra was able to perfectly capture the song, transforming 808s into crashing symbols and stirring violins.
You can find the symphonic remixes on Migos’ Trap Symphony project. On July 31, the ATLiens will drop their debut album, Yung Rich Nation.
Watch them turn up to “Hannah Montana” below.
