Denzel Curry recently teamed up with BadBadNotGood to rework two of his hits, including his 2014 classic “Ultimate” and his 2016 “Sick and Tired.”
Although not released until yesterday (May 31), Curry and BBNG collided in a studio session back in March. Curry told The Fader in an email that doing a studio session like this is something he’d wanted to do for a while.
“I’ve wanted to experiment with performing my music with a live band for a while now. I first heard of BADBADNOTGOOD from this live session they did with Tyler [The Creator] a few years ago. We got a chance to link up in the studio while they were out in L.A. and the rest was history.
“This means a lot to me because I get to hear my music re-imagined through live instruments and it’s a bonus for my fans who are into other genres. It was a challenge trying to nail that same energy but I think we did it. I may experiment with it more moving forward, I’d love to work with them again on something original.”
