Breathe Deeper (Remix) – [Tame Impala] ft. [Lil Yachty]

One of my favorite parts about music comes when two artists or musicians come together and provide a different outlook on a song that you’d never expect. While Tame Impala might not be included in genres like hip-hop or rap, they’re clearly one of the biggest bands in the world, and they’ve attracted music fans of all different genres, myself included. As far as Lil Yachty is concerned, he is never one to avoid a challenge and has always tried to push the boundaries of hip-hop, blending different genres together and seeing what he can do on instrumentals that might not come to life in a studio as he’s used to.

Most recently, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that he decided to put his own spin on Tame Impala’s song “Breathe Deeper”, a cut off of their 12-song album The Slow Rush that came out early last year, and the results are as strangely appealing as you might expect. Obviously, whether you’re familiar with this song or not, you already know that Tame Impala has a very vibey, optimistic sound most of the time, at least from what I’ve heard, so Yachty’s contribution to this track seems to work seamlessly.

While he brings a very positive energy to the song, his bubbly, autotuned vocals just ride out over the instrumental amazingly well, as he allows his lyrics to roll off of his tongue and breathe new life into this fan favorite. During certain moments, he begins to get a bit more melodic, stretching out certain words to squeeze every last drop of his vocal effects into the microphone for some results that are as remarkable as you might expect, no matter how out of the ordinary this collaboration might’ve seemed at first. Although this might not have been the remix you expected, it’s the remix you deserve, making Lil Boat’s remix to Tame Impala’s song “Breathe Deeper” something that you need in your life as soon as you get a chance to listen.
