I'm often wary of unofficial, unsolicited remixes. Like, what could you possibly do to make a track like Rihanna's "Bitch Better Have My Money" more of a banger than it already is? Glad I gave this remix a chance, though, because Tiwa Savage and Reekado Banks, both signed to Don Jazzy's Nigeria-based Mavin Records, give BBHMM an unexpected afrobeat spin. Over a new groove and dense percussion, they speed up Rih's steady, unhurried original to a more traditionally club-appropriate bpm. In other words, Turn up to Rihanna while the whole club's fucking wasted.
