Latto recently released her new remix to “Big Energy.” The remix features the sampled artist, the legendary Mariah Carey. Speaking with Nadeska on Apple Music 1, Latto revealed how she felt when she found out Carey was joining the single.
“Really big, really big. Huge, like fall out your chair, get back in the chair, fall out your chair, get back in the chair,” Latto said. “When we started talking about a remix originally, I was like, ‘Mariah, but let me be realistic, that’s just sidebar. I’d love to have Mariah on it, but anyways.’ And Mariah’s actually on it. That’s crazy.”
Latto revealed her A&R, Derek, reached out with the news, and she had the sharp reaction of “Man, get the f**k out my phone.. Stop playing.”
She added, “When she got on the song, I feel like nowadays, like when people do remixes, it be like a little open first, come in and speak and dip for the rest of the record. This felt like a nostalgic remix to me. I was like, she came in and added to the song, she made the song way better. So I was like, I got a real remix. Period.”
