K-pop’s vocal prowess Jamie and an eccentric rapper/singer-songwriter CHANMINA from Japan join forces and power up on a remix version of multi-platinum artist Saweetie’s chart-burning, global smash hit “Best Friend (feat. Doja Cat).” The eagerly-anticipated remix is set to drop on April 23.
“I am overwhelmed to be on a track with the two international artists that I listen to and party with my besties, along with CHANMINA. It is my biggest dream and my fans for sure will feel the same as me. So please enjoy it as much as I do!,” Jamie says about her ambitious new project.
“Thank you for letting me be a part of this fun and amazing project. It feels like we’ve all become best friends in real life and the thought of that makes me happy. I hope you enjoy this song with all of your best friends around the world,” CHANMINA adds.
Saweetie’s “Best Friend” featuring Grammy-nominated rapper Doja Cat is an empowering, uplifting fun track that celebrate women’s success, beauty, and independence. The song peaked at No. 14 on US Billboard Hot 100 chart, and its accompanying music video has earned a staggering 110 million views on YouTube since its release.
Regarding the remix project, Saweetie explains, “All of my fans around the world are so important to me, I wanted to give them a special treat with my girls Jamie & CHANMINA. I can’t wait for everything to open back up so I can fly out and perform this remix for my Icy Gang!”
K-pop star Jamie has built an unparalleled repertoire, showcasing her chameleonic musical abilities and maturity in EPs like the coming-of-age 19to20 and genre-hopping jiminxjamie. With buoyant charisma, mischievous charms, and inimitable vocal talent, the critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter continues to enchant her growing international fanbase (under Warner Music Korea), as she currently boasts 1.5 million followers on Instagram and millions of streams on multiple platforms.
CHANMINA, who is a Korean-Japanese multi-talented singer-songwriter from Warner Music Japan, has gained a large worldwide following through her talent-stacked projects, over-the-top confidence, and flamboyant aesthetics. Her hit 2019 single, “Never Grow Up”, has collected more than 20 million views on YouTube, while her latest hard-hitting single, “BIJIN,” which dropped on March 19, is already gaining massive traction with over 3.6 million views on YouTube.
The project, Remix EP Extended, is to arrive after the success of its first remix pack that included guest verses from popular artists like Stefflon Don from UK, Vava from China, Jess B & Okenvo from Australia.
