Along with GRAMMY Award-winning phenom T-Pain, the dynamic electronic artist Softest Hard reinvents one of dance music’s most famous tracks titled “I’m Blue,” a crossover single soaked in nostalgia, out now on HARD Recs.
Eiffel 95’s song, whose vocal hook has been firmly etched into our minds since its 1998 debut, is one of the most memorable dance singles of all time, and Softest Hard and T-Pain delve into the vault to pull it out on “I’m Blue.”
While Softest Hard embellishes the rhythm with dazzling synth improvements, crisp trap drums, cowbell strikes, swinging sax touches, and traces of the original production, T-Pain adjusts the topline with his famous auto-tuned flare.
The ultimate product is a contemporary take on a timeless piece that the world of today never realized it needed.
The single has already amassed more than 1 million streams on Spotify alone and gaining traction as we speak! Listen to “I’m Blue” below.
T-Pain on the song:
“Working with Softest Hard on recreating this 90s classic has been a blast. I’m a longtime dance music enthusiast so this collaboration is something I’ve been looking forward to for a long time. Hope you all enjoy!”
Softest Hard shares a few words on the collaboration:
“‘I’m Blue” is one of the biggest dance records on my album. It was an honor to work with the super talented legend, T-Pain. It’s a refreshing twist to such a feel-good ,nostalgic record. It’s the perfect middle ground between soft and hard.”
