WTF: R Kelly Croons Over Baths' 'Maximalist' [MP3]
That somewhat questionable "art" seldom delivers any serious surprises, but when it does, the Chicago duo is almost invariably behind them.
The Hood Internet has nurtured a long-running love for tracks from the Anticon Records oeuvre, and the latest fruit of that kinda-sorta collaboration pits R&B freak-king R Kelly against L.A.'s rising star, Baths.
The latter's "Maximalist," a joyous song that combines the lush melodic content of the chillwave movement with the surging beat-work of the Low End Theory crew, here becomes the backing track for R Kelly's 2005 reggaeton joint "Burn It Up."
"Hot" doesn't begin to describe what happens.
