TGIF with Yolanda Be Cool
Back in 2010 Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP smashed the charts around the world with their dangerously catchy collaboration We Speak No Americano. Unfortunately, the group left us hanging until now for a new track, but they’ve returned in a big way with yet another monster tune in the shape of the Rodriguez sampling Sugar Man, and I think we can all forgive them for the wait considering how sweet it is… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Anyway, we were pretty lucky to get Yolanda Be Cool to play selector for TGIF, cause when it comes to putting together a banging playlist for your Friday shenanigans, these fellas can’t be beet. Alright, enough is enough, without further ado, you can stop searching (OK we’re done… we promise) Yolanda Be Cool’s TGIF playlist is here and we even got a little scoop as to why each track made the cut.
TGIF WITH YOLANDA BE COOL
Benoit & Sergio - $100 Bill "$100 bill in my back pocket and i’ve already forgotten that iv’e got a girlfriend because the night is young and…" Party starter for sure!
Yolanda Be Cool and DCUP - Sugar Man Everyone’s looking for a sugar man at the party and this one def been working for us :)
Katia & Julinho Rasta - Rap Da FelicidadeThis is old school baile funk and is all about love in the favelas as opposed to violence and sex. Drop it and watch the Brazilians run to the front (and that’s always a good thing).
Notorious BIG - Juicy Could be any Biggie song really - “Birthdays was the worse days, now we sip champagne when we thirsty.” Genius!
Justin Martin & Ardalan - PrincessOn our all time fave label (apart from Sweat It Out of course) - Dirty Bird - this is so weird and musical and crazy all at the same time. It’s like if Mozart grew up now in East London and went clubbing.
MK vs Kant - Ey Yo We loved the original Busta Rhymes joint so when MK remixed the Kant version (which we loved) into a house banger…job done!
Hannah Wants & Chris Lorenzo - RhymesJackin booty house that would work as an instrumental but with the Daft punk referencing hook, it goes off!!!
Stefano Ritteri - The PartylifePool party music by our best Italian bud
Deep & Disco - Hitney WhoustonDope n deep nu-disco until about the 3 minute mark when Whitney chimes in with the chorus “I wanna dance with somebody.” Party steps up.
Nelly - Hot In HerreNeptunes at the top of the game with this. Still not tired of it, cheesy as it is.
