New Music: Chrisette Michele & Drake — Passionfruit
Chrisette Michele remixes Drake’s “Passionfruit.”
Criticized for performing at Trump’s inauguration, there’s no doubt Chrisette Michele hopes put the bad press behind her with this remix to Drake’s “Passionfruit.” It’s not a bad play. The track’s success — hot off More Life — might well rub off on her.
The talented vocalist puts her skills on display, taking the song’s lyrics to a much higher octave. Drake’s vocals remain but Chrisette’s dominate the remix, turning it into a duet, much to her advantage. Her strong soulful vocals contrast with the song’s cool Carribean rhythms. “Passionfruit” — announced as one of the 6 God’s next singles — is one of the rapper’s softer sounding songs on the recently released playlist.
