Amalia also has this advice to give anyone who’s thinking of entering the remix competition. Here’s what she said:

I’d say, just fly with it ladiez and gentlemen. I’m open to all tingz deeply creative. The beat is a bit wonky and might be hard to figure out. The acapella starts at bar 1, 100bpm, it should all line up automatically. I am soOoo excited to hear what you come up with, just have FUN!
