London dance set Rudimental have the makings of a global smash on their hands with the "Lay It On Me." The track, which features chameleon vocals from Ed Sheeran, recently cracked the top 50 on the charts. Now, this heavyweight remix, featuring new verses from Big Sean and Vic Mensa and premiering today on The FADER, is sure to give the track additional crossover appeal and to hasten its rise.
It took a bit of tweaking to make the bright, house-inspired single fit for the rappers, but during a session with Big Sean they made it work. "We did a remix for Big Sean and when he was next in London we hooked up a session," the four-piece told The FADER in an email. "We wanted to collaborate on something and he really felt 'Lay It All On Me' so we changed the beat a bit so it suited a rapper. Vic Mensa is one of our favourite up and coming rappers so we got really excited when he agreed to jump on for a verse and felt like a good fit with Big Sean."
