Mr. Probz‘s global hit “Waves” got off to a slow start in the US but eventually caught on and climbed all the way to number 22 on the Billboard Hot 100. The Dutchman’s hypnotic jam could go even higher if a new remix featuring T.I. and Chris Brown gets an official release. I mean, what better way to expand the song’s audience than recalibrating it for urban radio?

Tip opens the remix with a bleak verse (“had a dream last night that my wife was at my wake with my son”) before Mr. Probz makes a welcome appearance in the chorus — only to be joined by Breezy, who shows off his soulful pipes. The new version of “Waves” is thoughtfully constructed but there’s no real reason for turning the melodic anthem into something completely depressing. Listen after the jump.
