In River Tiber's hands, Selena Gomez's current single "Kill Em With Kindness" transforms from a perky battle cry into something that more closely resembles an Out of Office reply. The Toronto producer's take on the track — which is bound for a compilation that is out tomorrow via Interscope — is smooth and sultry, lush, and lightly tropical. The EDM signifiers that mark the original have been scrubbed clean, but it's still spiked with sass: we like to imagine Selena taking a satisfied sip from her drink (gin and tonic, perhaps; definitely umbrella adorned) after she sings go head, go head now. Check it out above.
