If you’re one of our many readers who boycotts the radio altogether, UK singer Ed Sheeran’s sappy hit “The A Team” is currently tearing up the charts and still quite a well-composed song. That said, you might like this fresh remix from Mike Posner a wee bit better.
See, The Pos did more than add in some hip-hop-inspired beat tweaks and extra guitar work from Jayson DeZuzio to this remix. The multifaceted Metro Detroit artist actually uses his latest cover to speak sincerely about two people he grew up with, whose respective paths got derailed along the way by vices. The second verse specifically speaks on someone Mike addresses as his best friend (seemingly former Finally Famous member Pat Piff) and is gut-wrenching even from a listener’s perspective.
Hopefully Posner’s people hear his attempt to reach out and get their act together, because half the reason this track is touching is because their lives are so twisted.
