As hip-hop has become more melody-based, gruffer MCs like Lil Jon and Pusha T have looked to find refuge in big-tent electronic dance music. Pusha worked with Yogi—who records for Skrillex's OWSLA label—earlier this year on "Burial," and the two reconnected recently for "Siri," which shudders and heaves at whiplash-inducing speed. The MC amusingly starts his verse by hitting on Siri: Siri, I got a question/ I need direction/ You got a best friend? Get to sextin.' Elliphant, who appeared on Major Lazer's "Too Original," also contributes to the track.
Zane Lowe made "Siri" his World Record today on Beats 1 Radio. Listen below.
