Lloyd f/ August Alsina – “Swimming Pools (Remix)” | New Music

New Orleans singer Lloyd remixes Compton lyricist Kendrick Lamar’s single “Swimming Pools (Drank),” off his upcoming album good kid, m.A.A.d. city.

The introspective original detailed how Kendrick’s parents influenced him to delve into the life of partying and drinking, whilst the R&B star’s rendition has more of a chill party vibe to it, as he tells the story of him waking up, preparing to, and attending a party.

The spacey, futuristic vibes created by producer T-Minus prove to fit appropriately for both artists; Lloyd’s version would be best fit for a night at the club, while Kendrick’s version is more at home in more intimate, relaxed settings. This remake will appear on Lloyd’s upcoming mixtape Playboy Diaries, which will be released towards the end of this year.
