This was a stellar week for collabs and remixes. “Old Town Road” is holding strong at no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, but Billie Eilish and Justin Bieber’s “Bad Guy” proves that Billy Ray Cyrus isn’t the only one who can swing a killer guest verse. Lykke Li’s “Two Nights” was one of my favorite pop songs of last year, and she enlisted Ty Dolla Sign and Skrillex for a thumping, dance-ready remix of the song. I have to admit I was a little skeptical what good would come out of an Ed Sheeran song called “South Of The Border,” but he smartly lets Camila Cabello and Cardi B steal the spotlight.
