DJ Khaled has been known to ruin many a song. Yet, somehow Just Ivy’s new single “Light Me Up” came out unscathed. However, while the wave-runner synths and certain melodies from the UK pop singer are indeed choice, this legit dance jam is really carried by the same break-beat drums Mariah rocked on the stellar “We Belong Together” remix. They’re catchy, yet banging, and ideal for crossover rap songs.
That being said, if Khaled really wants a hit, he should do what he does best and enlist a a troop of MCs to jump on a remix and round out the song proper. We’ll take Vado, but please, no French.
