From the moment we heard snippets of Prince Kaybee’s Club Controller remix, we knew it was going to blow Mzansi’s mind.
He released both the song and music video on Friday and it’s still trending at number one on YouTube. And, to be honest, from the reaction it’s safe to say it is pure fire.
Well, because the original Club Controller does that thing that makes the vosho, the ‘Thuso Phala’ and the gwara gwara to be done. Like every time it plays.
Who is there?
Well, the song basically has the royalty of hit making where dance music is concerned. This version includes Bucie, Mpumi, Ziyon, Busiswa, Nokwazi and Naak Musiq in addition to TNS & LaSoulmates and Zanda Zakuza.
Everyone on the roster murdered their lines and brought a different feel to the song.
For example, Busiswa brought that gqom queen spirit, Bucie had that princess of house vibe going while Naak gives a lil something for the ladies (it’s all in the voice) and Ziyon brought back that twang we all miss from Liquideep.
It is worth noting that since the rise of gqom, most songs have been sleeping on including great vocals or great lyrics. But not in this song. This song works!
So why does it work?
Because these people are us. Each artist reacts to the original song and talks about what it means to them.
The visuals are also stunning and the dance moves are uber impressive.
So, yeah, well done to Kaybee and the team.
Every time we listen to the song = Ke Dezemba Boss!
