The secret’s out.
After much anticipation, Latto drops the official remix to her top 20 hit “Big Energy” featuring Mariah Carey. The remix, which also features DJ Khaled, borrows from MC’s chart-topping 1995 hit “Fantasy.”
“I’ma be your fantasy / You ain’t gon’ believe this / Hold up, got Mimi on the remix,” raps Latto.
“Big Energy” samples Tom Tom Club’s 1981 single “Genius of Love,” which Mariah famously sampled on “Fantasy.”
Earlier today, Mariah celebrated her birthday aka her “anniversary” with wishes from Latto. “THANK U FOR YOUR LEGENDARY VOCALS & ALL THE ADVICE YOU GAVE ME QUEEN,” she wrote, to which Mariah replied, “So excited for this moment dahhhhllling!!!!! So happy and proud of you and all you’re accomplishing!!!”
Latto previously paid homage to her idol by recreating her Rainbow album cover for Halloween.
On Friday, Latto released her album 777 featuring appearances from Lil Wayne, Childish Gambino, 21 Savage, Lil Durk, Nardo Wick, and Kodak Black.
