Kaytranada Turned Rihanna’s ‘Kiss It Better’ Into A Technicolor Banger

His new remix premiered on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 Radio show

Compared to “Work,” Rihanna’s “Kiss It Better” is a relatively subdued track — or at least it was before Kaytranada got his hands on it.

Just a few weeks after releasing his debut album 99.9%, the producer premiered his official Rihanna remix on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio show today. His version of “Kiss It Better” picks up a lot more steam as Rihanna’s pitched-up vocals dance over a light and nimble beat.

"I really love the song,” Kaytranada told Lowe during their interview on Beats 1. He couldn’t get it out of his head, and soon enough his own take on the single started taking shape. It’s a perfect complement to the original, upping the tempo but keeping Rihanna’s soulfulness intact.
