UPDATE: It is here. Press play on Blanco Brown and Ciara’s remix of “The Git Up” below.

Ciara's 'Thinkin Bout You'
Ciara is seriously lovesick on slinky, new single 'Thinkin' About You.'

Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” wasn’t the only country/hip-hop hybrid to crossover in 2019. Blanco Brown’s ruthlessly catchy “The Git Up” also cracked the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 and performed even better internationally — going top 10 in Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The unstoppable bop is about to get a second wind thanks to the imminent release of a remix featuring Ciara. “What if I told y’all this was coming real soon?!” the artist/producer captioned the cover art of “The Git Up” version 2.0 on Instagram.

While “real soon” could mean anything in the music industry, this week’s New Music Friday is a fairly safe bet. The remix caps another busy year for Ciara. She self-released Beauty Marks (her 7th LP) earlier this year, gave us a couple of notable collaborations including “Evapora” with Iza and Major Lazer, and recently dropped the feel-good “Melanin.” A country anthem might seem a little left field for the R&B icon, but “The Git Up” is a dance song and nobody moves better than CiCi. See Blanco Brown’s announcement below.
