Alright, take a moment to remember these popular song lyrics, “Say what, say what, say what. Girl, you know what’s up”. Who comes to mind? None other than Mr. Donell Jones, of course! It was by far one of the greatest r&b classics of the 90s (if you don’t know it, you’re young and please don’t remind me how old I am). Now that we got a mini-music history lesson, it’s time to take a look at the present day. Mar and iLL BLU have teamed up to give us a perfect summer jam that is laced with traces of Jones’ hit. Not only is there the element of old-school tunes, but it’s also completely addictive with its dance-floor electronic vibe. Mar also makes sure to shine with his slick, r&b vocals to add some soul to this club banger. This version of “What’s Up” is something else and we’re sure Donell would be impressed. Check it out for yourself below.
