“Twice” F. Solange Knowles & The Roots (Questlove Remix)

    Hopefully by now you’re aware that Jazz musician Robert Glasper‘s Black Radio LP is going through a musical makeover. Three tracks — 9th Wonder and Phonte’s “Afro Blue” remix, Pete Rock’s “Black Radio” remix, and Georgia Anne Muldrow “Consequences of Jealousy” remix — from the upcoming Black Radio Recovered: The Remix EP (out Oct. 9) have already been unveiled, but now here’s Questlove‘s interpolation of “Twice,” featuring a little help from Solange Knowles (Beyonce’s lil’ sis) and his Roots cohorts.

    Now, “Twice” isn’t actually included on Glasper’s Black Radio, neither is it his original work (it’s a Little Dragon track which was covered live by the Robert Glasper Experiment last year), but Questo channels inspiration from both, layers in some drums, chimes and percussion, and hands the keys to Ms. Knowles, who steers the song with those sensual vocal chords of hers.

    All in all, this is just a delicious composition. Bon appétit. [CoS]
