It seems like Pharrell’s on everything these days, and his discography now includes a spot on a remix of Bruno Mars’ “Gorilla.”
On Twitter Friday (Oct. 8), Mars dropped the remix of the “Unorthodox Jukebox” single, saying it featured “two of [his] favorite artist[s]”: the producer/rapper extraordinaire and R&B/soul crooner R. Kelly.
If you thought the original “Gorilla” — with its lines about primal, uninhibited sex — was dirty enough, does Mars and co. have a treat in store for you.
The remix — referred to officially as a ‘G-mix’ — features Pharrell making a number of sexual allusions to yoga poses, though it’s R. Kelly that gets down and dirty, imitating the “ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh”s of the original and primates themselves while declaring that he’ll make a certain part of your anatomy growl.
The release of the remix follows the official “Gorilla” video, a steamy affair that dropped last month.
“Gorilla” sits at No. 28 on the Hot 100 — six spots down from its No. 22 peak last week.
