Lykke Li is linking up with Lil Baby and SNOWSA for the official remix of “sex money feelings die,” a standout selection from her 2018 studio album so sad so sexy. Notably, this rap-tinged rework is being released to support and promote Lykke Li’s upcoming EP still sad still sexy. Besides this Lil Baby-assisted record, Lykke Li’s next EP will also feature solo cuts like “Baby Doves” and “Neon.”
“It’s like making a painting, and you keep painting it over a million times. Every single person who put a stroke on it should get credited,” Lykke Li previously explained to Billboard when questioned about collaborative efforts like today’s Lil Baby-assisted rework. “It’s really interesting to build a collage from all these pieces and experiences and meetings you had.”
“I don’t plan anything. It’s like ‘what do I want to do? What is difficult for me?’” Lykke Li added in a separate interview with NME, expounding upon her approach to collaborations. “I was inspired by the people around me. I was like, ‘Woah, they’re f*cking good at writing songs. I want to write a song like that.’ I was feeling inspired to make a song better – to think about the structure and the melody a little more … I need for them to bring something that I couldn’t have done myself and push me into a place that I haven’t been able to do myself – like a real band. To understand what I’ve been trying to do and take me there. Like a real band … It’s about risk-taking and being exponential.”
