Two months after releasing his single “Badwine,” Feid teams up with Puerto Rican artist Lenny Tavarez for the remix, officially out last Thursday.
The original track, released April 11, 2019, sensually fuses dembow, reggaeton, and deep bass melodies, bringing to the forefront Feid’s unique Colombian flow. Although the song captures Feid’s essence of sexy-urban-pop-tropical music — which also gives color to his sophomore studio album 19 — it’s the remix featuring Lenny that really brings the track together.
The seductive melody is untouchable, but with lyrics such as “no man controls you” and “you look much better single,” Lenny brings his witty double-meaning verses and crystal-clear voice to the table, giving Feid’s “Badwine” an even sexier twist. “Badwine” is about a man who invites his special lady to relive the good old times, making it clear that he wants to spend time by her side.
“It’s a very special beat by Pardo, Jowan and Wain and I’ve always had a good connection with Lenny when it comes to making music because he connects a lot with the sounds that I like,” Feid tells Billboard on why Lenny was the perfect fit for the remix, assuring he enhanced the track.
A music video is also in the works, promising a special concept. “I do not have the release date yet but on July 5 we will be filming it in Miami so, stay tuned because the video is going to be awesome, it has a very special concept.”
While more upbeat reggaeton songs currently dominate the Hot Latin Songs, such as Daddy Yankee’s “Con Calma” and Lunay’s “Soltera (Remix),” we are seeing more and more Latin artists, like Dalex, Feid and Sech, play with these types of melodies: Latin R&B fused with hints of slow-tempo dembow and reggae. “Badwine” gives honor to this musical trend, hinting in its title that the rhythm is meant for dancing a “bad wine” all summer long.
