Rihanna "What's My Name? (Federation Remix feat. Vybz Kartel)"
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Rihanna on XLR8R? Yeah, we know it looks a little bit odd, but 1) our inboxes aren't exactly bursting with free MP3s during the holiday season and 2) this isn't any old Rihanna track. This remix has been infused with a jolt of all-star dancehall energy courtesy of NYC producers Max Glazer and Ricky Blaze and also features a guest turn from badman MC Vybz Kartel (pictured above). (Side note: We're super-excited for the new Dre Skull-produced Vybz Kartel album slated for release next spring on Mixpak. Check this new video of Vybz announcing the new record.) Anyways, this version has been making waves in dancehall circles for a few weeks, and now Glazer has thrown it up for free on his Federation Sound blog. Ri-Ri's "na-na" never sounded so good.
