Avicii’s atmospheric folk-meets-house anthem “Wake Me Up” has already topped the charts in more than a dozen countries and is currently sitting pretty at number three on US iTunes but the Swedish DJ isn’t satisfied yet. He turned to Pitbull in a bid to broaden the song’s appeal and features the Miami rapper on a new “Worldwide Remix”.
It’s not really an improvement. In fact, Mr. Worldwide’s sloppy verse (“it’s about dancing in the rain and if it rains lemons, make lemonade”) kind of ruins the track’s sweeping moodiness. Oh well, I guess they might play it on urban radio now. So that’s a win, right? Listen, if you dare, after the jump.
Is this remix a hit or miss? Let us know in the comments below.
