Wallpaper. has already earned a strong following among pop insiders by holding up a funhouse mirror to conventional radio-friendly club jams. (Remember how the hyper-viral “Combination Pizza Hut And Taco Bell” remix blasted consumer culture with a giggle.) Now Wallpaper. is back with the club-demolishing “#STUPiDFACEDD”, a party anthem that works brilliantly as both satire and, um, party anthem. (The video features the best pillow fight we’ve seen since the Britney Spears vs. Rihanna throwdown at last night’s Billboard Music Awards).
We’re proud to host the exclusive premiere of a new remix featuring Kay, a funky, feisty up-and-comer already tipped as a potential hitmaker. Listen to Kay take charge of the party and add a #WHiTEGiRLWASTED’s point of view below. Warning: the bass on this track will shake your fillings loose.
Wallpaper. – “#STUPiDFACEDD (Kay Remix)” – aka #WHiTEGiRLWASTED remix:[wpaudio url="http://cdn.idolator.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/STUPiDFACEDD_WHiTEGiRLWASTED_REMiX_.mp3" text="Wallpaper. - #STUPiDFACEDD (Kay Remix)" dl="0"]
The original track by Wallpaper. had creator Eric Frederic (and/or his hipster alter ego “Ricky Reed”) poking fun at his own rapping skills: “When I say ‘awkward’ y’all say ‘silence’”, etc. But Kay adds a twist with a confident verse in which she’s prepared to drink her partner under the table.
The remix should be a treat to fans who’ve followed both Wallpaper. and Kay as they’ve reached the verge of mainstream breakthroughs.
Frederic is a longtime studio geek who’s utterly committed to the craft of pop, as revealed in this interview with URB and Society Theory:
As for Kay, she’s a sly-but-soulful Canadian singer who’s now a protege of ace songwriters Ryan Tedder and Evan Bogart. Watch Kay’s hilarious video for “My Name Is Kay” below.
