Formerly known as XVII, 20-year-old producer Vincent is “Here” with a new alias and remix.
The Winnipeg native takes Alessia Cara’s lead single — which spent four weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart — from slow-moving R&B to upbeat trap-infused territory with his trademark future bass feel.
Newcomer Alessia Cara — who has can count such pop heavyweights as Taylor Swift and Drake among her fans — may seem an unconventional choice for Vincent, who has mostly remixed hip-hop and dance artists like Meek Mill, Flume and Alison Wonderland. However, the newly re-christened producer succeeds in taking her pop song to new heights.
