Out Tuesday (Jan. 7), the remix package features a quartet of reinterpretations of the sultry pop-R&B hit. The young Swedish producer Osrin offers a pleasantly bopping and even-keeled version, while Dutch veteran Marc Benjamin takes the radio-friendly original into festival mainstage territory with bursts of buzzing electro-house synths. Rhythm and blues becomes rhythm and bass — a lot of bass — in Grant’s hands, and Soulji takes “Good Thing” dark by pitching down Kehlani’s vocals to match his murky, brooding production. Hear the remix package below.
Teleased in September, “Good Thing” is Zedd and Kehlani’s first collaboration. Last month, they performed an acoustic version of the song with a live band and Zedd on drums. For the producer, it capped a 2019 relatively short on releases compared to recent years; his only other release, back in February, was the Katy Perry collaboration “365,” though he also co-produced Perry’s single “Never Really Over.”
But with 2019 now officially in the rear-view mirror, this just might be the big year for which fans have been waiting. When asked on Twitter about the possibility of a new album (his last, True Colors, came out in May 2015), Zedd had simply this to say: “2020.”
