Apple Juice Kid & The 13th Tribe Rework Janelle Monáe’s ‘Q.U.E.E.N.’


As if Janelle Monáe’s "Q.U.E.E.N." couldn’t get any better, Apple Juice Kid and The 13th Tribe prove that it can. In their remix of the smooth banger featuring Erykah Badu, the ladies get a reworking in the form of heavy reggae undertones and lightly sprinkled synths. The producers create the perfect recipe for a song that was already a favorite. The beginning eases you into what’s about to be a funky celebration of beats and Janelle’s vocals. At the three-minute mark AJK and The 13th Tribe take a little detour to a world of melody by adding another layer onto the already intriguing remix. Erykah’s vocals are incorporated towards the end of the song and Janelle’s fervent bars at the end put the perfect bow on this gift of musical love. Listen in and download the track for free to see if Apple Juice Kid and The 13th Tribe did the queens justice.
