Skrillex and Chance the Rapper are both the kind of artists who seem to radiate positivity, energy, and warmth. So it makes sense that the two would team up together again (following their 2014 collab “Coast is Clear”) for a remix that’ll inject you with a hefty boost of bliss.
On Monday, Skrillex's remix of “Show Me Love,” a prayer for positivity from Florida band Hundred Waters, premiered on Anne Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show. The new version features a fresh verse from Chance the Rapper, and also includes contributions from Robin Hannibal of Rhye and soul/folk songwriter Moses Sumney. While Hundred Waters’ original a cappella track was moody and haunting, Skrilly’s remix is way more energized and summer-ready, thanks in large part to his dizzy synths and Chance’s playful bars.
An accompanying video for the track, released Tuesday, marks Skrillex’s directorial debut and features cameos from all of the featured artists. The clip is brimming with unbridled joy, as the crew plays in a ball pit, has a sword fight on the beach, writes in the sand with giant crayons, and rides around in shopping carts.
In a press release via Pitchfork, Hundred Waters singer Nicole Miglis said, “This song was literally a journal entry I wrote to myself a few years ago, so seeing it become something bigger in the context of everyone involved was really special.” Skrillex added, “It’s all about love and positivity, what this world really needs right now.” Amen to that.
