I'd more or less given up on Cypress Hill. So, their most recent single caught me off-guard. Partly because it's an uncharacteristically breezy summer jam. And partly because it's a collaboration with Pitbull and Marc Anthony over a sample from Crosby, Stills & Nash. On paper, the whole idea sounds dubious. But, the execution makes me like each one of the aforementioned folks a little more than I did before.
In keeping with a theme, I've put together a playlist to usher in warmer times. In addition to the usual culprits, you'll find another left-field sample in a track from Scooter, a thinly disguised Will.I.Am kicking it with Steve Aoki, and the sound of a symphony laid over the drums from Rihanna's "Umbrella."
1. Cypress Hill, Pitbull & Marc Anthony - Armada Latina
2. Usher & Will.I.Am - OMG
3. The Temper Trap - Sweet Disposition
4. Scooter - Stuck on Replay
5. Katy Perry & Snoop Dogg - California Gurls
6. R.I.O. - After the Love
7. Dan Black & Kid Cudi - Symphonies (Remix)
8. Lady GaGa - Alejandro
9. Steve Aoki & Zuper Blahq - I'm in the House
10. DJ Khaled, T-Pain, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg & Rick Ross - All I Do Is Win
